O. Emm. Gee.

It's the Obamalympics! With all-new, Chicago-specific events!

Barry's an early favorite in the 100m Backpedal and the Under-The-Bus Crony Toss.

No word on who his partner will be in the new Synchronized Obfuscating event, which will be exhibition-only at this Olympics, but may become a medal sport in the future.

I think a couple of new games to look at would be "The Drive-By Shootin' Gallery" and "The Crack Toss" games.

I'm looking forward to the Freestyle Police Brutality. That's where Chicago will really shine!

You think the guy would remove himself and his family from any influence since it's so likely their friends and monetary supporters would be the ones benefiting monetarily from this.

It's Daley who stands to feather his nest out of this; Barry is just paying back his debt to Dick.

I'm guessing most of you have already seen this bit of on-topic hilarity over at Ace of Spades:

This just in: Shot Putin has been cancelled. The Money Fling will be expanded in its place.

Hop, Skip, & Bail Jumping has also been added the schedule.

It's rumored that golden showers will be installed in the Olympic Village for visiting celebrities. On the other hand, Golden Parachutes will be provided to all Chicago Olympic organizers - they're a community, after all!
