Ok, we hear Greece, we expect something sad, ugly, depressing.  And a picture like this:

Wasn't she the hot but racist athlete?

When I think Greece I think sun, sea, sex, sand, gyros and Mythos/Alpha. Lovely place those holiday islands. She reminds me of point three LOL  8)

In the new, thin skinned world, that can't take a joke, everyone is a racist...

But she is certainly hot....

Back in the days behind the iron curtain, one of the few forms of resistance (where resistance was futile) was to tell jokes about the regime.  The Commissars were to too hapy about the jokes, and could certainly ruin your life - over a joke.

Fast forward 20+ years, and these idiot commissars are in charge of what used to be called the "Free World".  They can ruin your life over a joke...

And we thought the West won.  The commissars are running the UN, the EU, the US, and now the Olympics too...

Don't get me wrong, I don't know the full story having only glanced at the headlines, so I'll take your word for it.

Nothing wrong with a bit of humorous easing. Just doesn't all go down too well (same with my sense of humour on here lol)

So Hitler was politically correct by claiming that the only reason blacks won in the 1936 Olympics because they were bred that way???   That isn't technically racist per se....  but boy is it twisted.

Read the story.  Apparently she posted this on her Twitter account:

"with so many Africans in Greece at least the West Nile mosquitos will eat homemade food."

Kind of funny, but really not that funny.  Offensive?  Just about every joke is offensive to someone...  Especially if the joke is any good...

But to destroy someone's life over this?  These athletes devote a big part of their life to get to the Olympics, and some Commissar can just destroy that - over a joke...

Lol that joke is way above me. Usually bad jokes stand up in court, at least in this country.
