GOOFY GAMES COULD BE THE LAST
… the ordinary competing against the mediocre in a ghost town
Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.
It’s time this crazy Commonwealth concept was disbanded as a bad joke! If the opening ceremony was a harbinger of what was to come, it didn’t disappoint with the Gold Coast looking like a ghost town ahead of dozens of otherwise thriving businesses closing their doors.
I live on the Gold Coast and you can shoot a dozen Gatling guns up any main street and not hit one pedestrian… everyone I know either fled to the Sunshine Coast or locked themselves indoors to watch the Aussie Rules or the Masters golf.
More entertainers than patrons
The only increase in the population was the 50 or so pretend Aborigines performing a road-closing corroboree outside the stadium to complain about the embarrassing opening corroboree inside!
I caught a glimpse of a woman walker being disqualified for running... but the men in 5,000 metre running event should have been disqualified for walking.
We all know that black people can’t swim and white people can’t run. The finals always confirm that, and disadvantaged people’s races were confusingly interspersed with the regular events so there were some people there to applaud the poor bastards.
Much like the Gold Coast’s failed Indi Car event that had to precede the V8s so that crowds would hang around to applaud American cars and drivers they had never heard of. Now that pit girls with yummy bums aren’t allowed, there’s no reason to watch any of it.
The only "game" worth watching is the girls’ beach volley ball… even a wide-eyed Governor General Cosgrove was there excitedly holding his hands between his legs, before rushing back to Canberra in case there was a Lib spill following Turnbull’s 30 losing polls.
Three blind mice
That Green dickhead Prince Charles was here with his funny looking missus to give the Republican movement some much-needed CPR. If he was ever to be King of Australia, Turnbull and Shorten would look like respectable politicians… no wonder we still hum, “God Save our Queen”.
Now, I don’t mind disadvantaged and bonkers people competing against each other after the main events but we’re battling to tell the difference in the swimming events until they hop out of the water with only one leg!
And who the hell is handicapping them? How can someone with two legs not have an unfair advantage over someone with one leg, or no legs. Blimey, why not have a piano playing competition for people with no fingers competing against people with only three fingers!
It seems that idiot of a Gold Coast Mayor, Tom Sumbugger, (above) is intent on destroying the place and who else could be relied upon to ensure he succeeds? Yep, that other ALP mental pygmy, Peter Beattie! Who in their right mind would appoint Beattie as Games Chairman?
After telling everyone to get off the roads into Surfers’, he is now exhorting everyone to drive to the Coast because for once there is “ample free parking”. Talk about a fuckup!
Beattie’s insistence that everyone use Tom Sumbugger’s public transport, left thousands without any way to get home from the opening ceremony.
As an ordinary Kiwi bloke weightlifter
As a successful Kiwi bird weightlifter
And there are always the trannies who have converted to blokes so they can win a medal. Too many birds with Adams apples for me
Oh well, there could be a highlight to look forward to soon... Beattie has invited Malcolm Turnbull to present a few medals.
I know I deserve one for watching some of this crap!
