The OlympEye

I'm sure most of you have heard all of the uproar over a picture of the Spanish Olympic basketball team, in which all the players are making "slant eye" gestures.

I agree that this photo is quite racist and stereotypical. But hey, what do you expect from a bunch of greasy guys all hopped up on sangria?

And anyway, why is it okay for the Chinese Olympians to make fun of themselves, but it's not okay when the Spaniards do it? Huh?? Tell me that! Oh, I feel so bad for you, China! You with your 5,000 gold medals, ancient laundry secrets, and never-ending supply of fortune cookies! Boo hoo! Cry me a yellow river!

I, for one, am tired of African countries sending all black athletes. Racist bastards.

Sparky Duck said...

In my best football frat boy chant, this controversy is "OVERRATED". Though the post is not

Why is racism so funny when you say it?

BeckEye said...

Because I'm a racist fat whore, don't you remember??

genn6 said...

I'm gonna cry...that's just funny as hell.

Kristi Mantoni said...

I forgot about those "ancient laundry secrets"! They need to share those!!! And Fortune Cookies but only if they're fresh.

In other news, Chinese officials demand the Spanish Basketball team all give one of their offspring to work in one of China's sweat shop factories.

When are we going to start seeing video games at the olympics? Now those are real sports.

I have the number three with extra MSG....what's that 5-10 minute, ah-so.

I did not actually leave this comment..I am a replacement for the original, not so attractive commentor.

I'm in if they do a Wii sports Olympics! I rock! I don't really but don't have to know that.

Falwless said...

hahahahaha @ "ancient laundry secrets"


Oh my.

How I love you, dearest BeckEye, how I love you.

(No, seriously, though, how do I? You suck!)

(JUS KIDDING)

(Or am I?)

(I think I've had way too little sleep. I am leaving weird comments all over the innertubes.)

The ChiComs can throw their people into prison for religious beliefs or for speaking out against inhumane treatment, and then as prisoners, they can take out their organs (while they're still alive) to sell on the black market... yet, they're offended by this picture? Give me a break. I find the ChiCom goverment offensive.

Sorry, I'll stop ranting now.

mellowlee said...

Oh yes, everyone at work was talking about this one yesterday. I was totally unaware as usual. *sigh*

I can't wait until the 2012 Olympics in London when they can have their photo taken wearing false English teeth.

Please pass the eggrolls - thanks.

hunh? I thought they were pointing to their brains to show how smart they all are.

Tony Spunk said...

Maybe those Spaniards were just demonstrating plastic surgery techniques? Are any of them hot? Send them to Tony. At least the ones without a penis. Which would be none. Those little Chinese chicks are adorable but Tony don't mess with 12 year olds.

The (lack of) coverage of this Spanish basketball team story cracks me up. If it was the USA team that did this, they'd be trashed in every newspaper on the planet as worse than Hitler. But somehow because they're European, it's just kind of silly. Bah, I say!

Dr Zibbs said...

"Ancient laundry secrets" - that's a good one.

Bond said...

Yeah and you know that team is sponsored by the man who lit the Olympic Flame...

he doesn't seem to mind this, why the f**k does the world me wonders

Keith Kennedy said...

It's funny as hell.

And I borrowed your picture for my blog.

Thanks!

I'll send royalty payments later.

I like to get hopped up on sangria as often as possible.

 

Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

My photo
I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
