And so the Olympics
And what sporting event would be complete without terrible bbc jokes and puns?
So far the worst:
‘a countdown Carol Vorderman would be proud of..’ – particularly terrible because she was recently effectively sacked.
‘Not so much House of Flying Daggers as House of Falling Stars.’ – terrible
Meanwhile the fireworks and drumshow were great.
Edit And sports presenters should probably shy away from broad cultural and historical statements – Zheng He is not Zhang Yi
