There's nothing quite like a potty East Ender railing against the injustices of the day; and when Terry Jones of Monty Python fame is the voice of the person in question, the result is truly sublime.
While the Olympics host city would probably like us to believe that simply everyone in the country is on board with hosting the games, it's never the case. In fact, the event can be a downright nuisance for the taxpaying citizens who live within the city limits. And Brick Lane Bertha here is no exception.
The animated short above, created by The Final Edition, is a treat for fans of Jones' "Life Of Brian" mother character, or pretty much any of the female characters he played over the years. It's also a bit of a cathartic balm for those of us who were tired of The Olympics before they even started.

OK, maybe not an entire round of mini-golf, but the windmill hole has got to be worth at least a Bronze.
It requires coordination, team work <em>and</em> has an awesome "uniform" selection (plus, you know America would take the Gold).
That Thing Where You Have To Get The Ball In The Cup
You know, that thing.
Finally, the nations of the world can express their frustrations in a way that doesn't involve bombs or embargos.
Potato Sack Races
We already have pre-teen Olympians, why not give them a sport that they'll actually enjoy?
It'd be a lot like that movie "<a href="http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0486551/" target="_hplink">Beerfest</a>," except, you know, a lot funnier.
