Friday 55

As a respite from Olympic coverage (almost) it is time to share your award winning 55 word story with the g-man.  No spoilers here...just the facts.

Bronze medal: Sheer Youthful Stupidity
Justin “Bad Manners” Beiber
For chiding host Prince William’s baldness. 

Silver medal:  Shooting Himself in the Foot While Putting Foot in Mouth
Usain “Formerly Respected”  Bolt.
Self proclaimed legends shouldn’t trash Carl Lewis.

Gold medal: Spirit of the Games
You came.  You tried.  We admired that.
Feel better, Stephan Feck*.

*German Diver Feck turned the phrase “slap on the back” into the most painful dive in Olympic history when his arms slipped during a somersault and he landed in the pool...flat on his back.  As if that’s not bad enough, his last name has been universally used as a headline pun, literally adding insult to injury.

I read these out loud to my dh. Too funny.

His dive was Totally Fecked!
Now he's famous.
I take it you are watching the Olympics? I'm only watching when the Ukraine Synchronized Swimming team is performing.
Loved your fictional awards Hope.
Loved your 55
Thanks for playing, and have a Kick Ass Week-End
