    Re: Turkey Claims Historical Ownership of Olympic Flame

    Turkey's slogan for lobbying for the 2020 Olympics?

    "Turkey 2020: At least you won't have to spend any money trying to keep Islamic Extremists from sneaking into the country to disrupt the games.........because we've got plenty of them here already!"

    I thought the IOC had a new "no third world hellholes" rule for awarding Olympic Games?

    In fact, the olympic flame originated when a particularly smart-arsed long distance runner combined a dinner of beans/a penchant for lighting his farts/a marathon event.

    Look it up, I dare ya.

    I always thought it had something to do with Mrs. O'Leary's cow.

    This is heresy. Kim Jong Il was not "born." He simply thought himself into existence.

    Later that same morning, he bowled a 300, then went out and golfed an 18.
