Don't you just love the Olympics? I mean I reeeely reeely heart the Olympics.
Don't stop reading. That wasn't what I came to say. I just wanted to show you this
Remember that adorable little Chinese girl (Lin Maioke) with the sweet little voice that sang the song "Ode to the Motherland" and flew through the air with the greatest of ease?
Turns out real singer was the voice of another girl (Yang Peiyi) who had won a "grueling music compeition" to perform in the ceremony. Too bad for her she had well, buck teeth. So those Chinese people yanked her the night before the show and replaced her with a much prettier girl.
I for one am glad. I mean has anyone ever introduced you to their kids and you have to physically control yourself from not making a John Lovitz noise (eeeeeuuughaye)? I hate it when that happens and I certainly don't want that feeling when I am watching the Opening Ceremony of the olympics.
I have decided that my formula for the best TV Olympic experience is this: watch the Opening Ceremony, watch all of Michael Phelps' events, throw in a little triathlon and track, don't let your husband watch women's beach volleyball, and most important avoid women's water polo at all costs.
p.s. The fireworks were fake too.
edit: Just want to make it clear that the picture at the top isn't a racist thing, it's just a reference to the newest scandal. What's up with Europeans being rude to other cultures yo? And I'm not just talking about the Olympics.
