Olympic Opening Ceremony To Feature Fly-tipping, Incest and Badge Baiting

BBC News - London 2012: Olympics opening ceremony details revealed

The Olympic Stadium will be transformed into the "British countryside" for the opening ceremony of the London 2012 Games on 27 July.

The set will feature meadows, fields and rivers, with families taking picnics, people playing sports on the village green and farmers tilling the soil.

Real farmyard animals will be grazing in the "countryside", with a menagerie of 30 sheep, 12 horses, three cows, two goats, 10 chickens, 10 ducks, nine geese and three sheepdogs.

I'm waiting for my invite to show the world the real British Countryside..


The whole thing reeks of the sort of entertainment-by-milquetoast-committee that produced the contents of the Millenium Dome.

Good. The crappier the Olympics is, the more likely people will decide that giving money to the government isn't a good idea.

Wot, no wind turbines?
