Not it's not. I know plenty of people outside of toronto that always wonder what americans and others think of us. We just here it more here because it's the media capital of the country.

GTA then. Quebec could care less. Alberta could care less. BC could care less. Toronto has been obsessed with being world class forever. They never would have poked fun at the national identity that way. That was a very western-Canadian bit of good natured fun. If you didn't get it, then maybe you pay too much attention to the media in this media capital.

A Greek triple jumper has been expelled from the Olympics after she posted a racist joke on Twitter.

Voula Papachristou was kicked out of her national team for mocking African migrants and expressing support for a far-Right political party.

Her offending message – which was referring to reports of mosquitoes carrying the West Nile virus in her home country – read: ‘With so many Africans in Greece, at least the West Nile mosquitoes will eat home made food!’

The flag flap that overshadowed the start of women's soccer at the London Olympics might be consigned to a list of human errors by organizers, but it could hardly have been more insulting to North Koreans.

The team from the reclusive communist country was back in seclusion at a hotel in Glasgow on Thursday after accepting profuse apologies from Olympic organizers, who mistakenly displayed the South Korean flag when introducing North Korean players before a game Wednesday night.

Saw the bp ad featuring famous us Olympic athletes, and Paralympic athletes. We are fucked. That much is pretty clear. Image appropriation at it's worst. Somehow no mention of global warming, oil spills, or subsidies. Just greatness by association. Set the soul-sucking machinery of commercial capitalism on high. I want to swim through bitumen with Michael Phelps. Then I will be complete.

Twitter: The place for modern society to prove that you're a drooling moron.



Also, this opening ceremony sucked.
Rowan Atkinson was probably the only saving grace, and Prodigy, that was good!
