My "frosty sphincter" remains unclenched, much as Stephen Colbert seems to be after my oval.
'I'm calling on Saskatche-whiners to unclench their frosty sphincters and let Americans on to their oval.'—U.S. comedian Stephen Colbert
The Oval, of course, or more properly, the Richmond Olympic Oval, located South of Vancouver will be the site for the speedskating events during the 2010 Winter Olympics.
On last Thursday's show the impish Colbert had more:
"Those syrup suckers won't let us practice at their Olympic venues.… At the Salt Lake Games, we let the Canadian luge team take 100 practice runs ... and you know how Mormons feel about two men lying down on each other," said the tongue-in-cheek night talk-show host."
Meanwhile, VANOC maintains it is playing by the rules.
"We've offered ample training time to international teams, including the U.S. team," said Smith-Valade. "We had training earlier this year for international teams and we're working right now to offer one more session of access to the international teams before the games."
Some international teams even failed to show up for their training sessions and the Oval sat empty, said Smith-Valade, but she couldn't say if the U.S. was one of those teams." She added that she thought Stephen Colbert was really funny.
Myself, I'm getting some humour out of Swine Flu vaccine additives.

Anyway, the additives:

...What do I know? I took my won buckshee MD from this One-eyed flying Purple People eater MD from the Rain Forest.
Hell, I don't even understand Global warming, except that it's late November and I am in my shorts. Really. In Canada.
