***NSFW***The VERY Special Olympics***NSFW***:

This comes (no pun intended) via Memepool.
Hey, the US is leading! We've always been tops at f*****g other countries over and this proves it!

gee, fork, I dunno about this post. It's pretty tasteless, but I guess it's just a gimmick for marketing condoms to sports fans. That said, I do like the pic of the female weightlifter competitor slapping chalk on her butt before "lift". (looks over shoulder to see if wifee is around)

Tasteless schmasteless, it's funny. The commentators on the movies are a riot in their authenticity. Precision vault looks kinda painful, I'd have to go with the judo. Losing there didn't look like such a bad thing.

Those big "NSFW" warnings make this sound more extreme than it is. The videos are tamer than an episode of Sex and the City. Funny link. It will give NBC ideas about how to increase ratings for the next Summer Olympics.

The spelling errors don't help the site ("prised" apart?), but it's not bad ... where do you click to get free samples? By the way ... I'm so selfish in bed I turn my Trojans inside out so they're ribbed for MY pleasure.

"Prised" is the proper Queen's English spelling, a "variant" of prized. I think the "errors" you are referring to are just British spellings.

No, WC2k2 ... not "prized." The context is the weightlifting team being pried apart, as in separated by force. I think that's a goof. As for the Queen's English, I have no beef (Wellington). Feel free to colour outside the lines, and pass me the spotted dick!

wfrazer: If you looked at my link, the reference to "prised" pointed to the following definition ("prize3" as calls it):

prize3 also prise Audio pronunciation of PRISED ( P ) Pronunciation Key (prz) tr.v. prized, also prised priz·ing, pris·ing priz·es, pris·es To move or force with or as if with a lever; pry. n. 1. Leverage. 2. Chiefly Southern U.S. Something used as a lever or for prying.
I was quite aware that "prise" in this case meant "pried" (verb form). Funny about that definition 2 for the noun form ("Chiefly Southern U.S."). I'll stick with the fish and chips.

Weird ... and correct. Thanks, wc2k2. But why would you want potato chips with fish?

Mmmmm, fish and chips.
