Medallion Man

An American swimmer named Phelps/ Won a medal amid cheers & yelps/ So now he’s won more/ Than any before/ (He’s in lots of events so that helps). /// http://www.guardian.co.uk/sport/2012/jul/31/london-2012-michael-phelps-olympian Advertisements

Keys to the Stadium? Copper Mislaid ’em.

The Wemberley stadium keys/ Were lost by some dopy PCs/ The locks got replaced/ But it’s rather a waste/ And is causing official unease. ///http://www.guardian.co.uk/sport/2012/jul/30/olympic-policing-own-goal-wembley?newsfeed=true

Running on Empty

There are lots of seats at the Games/ Which every day nobody claims/ Whose seats, we don’t know/ Until old Lord Coe/ & LOCOG begin naming names. /// http://uk.reuters.com/article/2012/07/29/uk-oly-emptyseats-day-idUKBRE86R0YS20120729

There once was a #TwitterJokeTrial/ Which rumbled along for a while/ But now justice has spoke/ So it’s OK to joke/ Without getting a CPS file. ///http://www.guardian.co.uk/law/2012/jul/27/twitter-joke-trial-high-court?newsfeed=true
