As I watch the closing ceremony of the Beijing Olympics...

...and the handover to London for 2012, I can't help but agree with Billy Connolly.



I'm kind of undecided in what I think of the handover performance from London. It would have been nicer if they'd used a traditional routemaster bus, but I'm guessing it's a lot harder to peel one of those open. The umbrellas were a realistic touch ;-)

When I was recently back in the UK, I was watching Sue Barker interview Sebastian Coe (who, for the non-Brits among Fish's audience, is leading London's 2012 organisation) following the opening ceremony. She asked him how he was going to top China's efforts, and with a glint in his eye he said, "Don't worry Sue, I've booked 5000 morris dancers."

Problem is, you wouldn't bet against it...

Hey Dylan, that is hilarious. I'd die of shame, but the thought is funny.
