We have had Lord Bradley and Sir Ed winning Gold, now we have a ginger bloke (proper ginger to, none of your strawberry blonde rubbish) taking gold in the Long Jump!

He may have a sandy bottom but WHO CARES! Earl Greg of The Rutherford!

What on earth is going on!

Ed Clancy, properly ginger this time, has won a gold in the men’s pursuit for Team GB!

Ginger Gold!

What with Sir Bradley of the Wiggins derring-do earlier this week is there a link between gingers, cyclists, lycra and Team GB!

Off for a spin on the Chopper and twang the hamstrings!

His Royal Gingerness

Hello Folks

As we pointed out recently, Tour de France winner and now OLYMPIC Champ Bradley “Lambretta” Wiggins was a ginger in his younger days.

Whilst time may have faded his ginger follicles to something browner, we can detect the Titian tinge remaining strong in those classy sideburns of his. I have started growing mine in the hope that I will become an Olympic Champion at some point in the next ten days.

Ginger Burns!  A Ginger Hero!
Brilliant Stuff! Go Wiggo!

Hello Folks,

Ginger Sooty, GLOVE PUPPET OF DREAMS provides a daily round-up of events at the London 2012 Olympics that are, quite simply London 2012. Here is his update for Day 4.

Hello everyone,

Great to see Tom Daley from Team GB in the diving. Is he British though? Check out how white his teeth are! And he can form a sentence!

I had the chance to have a sneak preview of Tom’s Olympic Diary, sponsored by Dairycrest.

“Diving Daley’s Daily Dairy Diary” is a great read. For example;

“July 30th – Got out of bed with triple somersault, piked in tuck position and had a bowl of Frosties. Cleaned teeth with twist and pike.  Off to the pool for some diving practice. Floss on the way.”

Diving does not make great radio, “He jumps…..He’s in the water.”

Also a highlight  was the record score by the USA’s Vincent Hancock in  Skeet Shooting. If like me you wondered where Skeet Ulrich’s promising career ended up…

A couple of sports for you to look out for today.

1. Long Distance Circumcision –  One of the highlights of any games. Can Yitzhak Cohen create history by winning his fourth consecutive gold? He is everyone’s tip. But expect a nip and tuck showdown with Hilary Bump from Team GB. He is eager for a slice of the action.

2. Team Nervous Tittering In The Dark – One for the purists this.  It just shows how inclusive the Games are. Even the bashful get a go! Expect the gold to go Cambodia, led by the Queen of the Titterers, Tee Hee-Hee.

Enjoy The Games! Sooty.

Hello Folks,

We’ve retained the services of Ginger Sooty, GLOVE PUPPET OF DREAMS, to provide a daily round-up of events at the London 2012 Olympics that are, quite simply London 2012. Here is his update for Day 1 of events.

Hello everyone, Ginger Sooty here.

Still in shock over McCartney’s plasticine features!!

Well what a day yesterday – Phelps lost to Lochte (Puffing on a bong doing the Butterfly can’t have helped) whilst some DAMN FOREIGNERS didn’t understand that our BRAVE, NOBLE, PLUCKY LADS should have won the cycling gold the moment they tucked their trouser legs into their socks and set of for a pootle around Surrey.

Anyway there are a couple of sports I think you should look out for today.

1. In-Line Irony –  Although Australian, Miscellany At-Large is the red hot favourite for today’s contest, keep an eye out for Team GB!

The banks of empty corporate seats at yesterday’s events, chimes perfectly with the intention of making this  “The People’s Games” and how they will “Inspire Future Generations”.

Now that is ironic!

2. Beach Scratch n Sniff – The men’s heavyweight category may prove to be one of the highlights of the Games. The morbidly obese Italian, Giorgio  Streppto-cocci is defending his title. He is quoted as saying – “I have doubled my weight in six months, not washed my privates or changed my underwear in that time and have been doing a lot of gym work.”

When Giorgio delves into his Budgie Smugglers on Horseguard’s Parade at 3 pm this afternoon, the contents of his crutch may trigger fears of a chemical attack on London. Pack a gas mask. Just to be on the safe side.

Enjoy The Games! Sooty.

Usain Bolt favourite for the Men’s sprints at London 2012, will be running with a chicken on his head during race time to give rivals a chance. The chicken, dead obviously, will be secured by a chinstrap.

Bolt has already raced with the chicken strapped to his head and comfortably beaten his rivals this season, as the picture below shows.

As Bolt commented, “I’ll be going so fast you will see a chicken fly!”

You chicken out his cadence?

It is not the first time Gfb has brought to you the importance of the chinstrap in world events, as the snaps below reveal.

Two Legends, One Chicken,One Chinstrap

One Legend, Three Yorkshire Puddings, One Chinstrap

Remember Him?

The regular reader of Gfb will know that we have followed the new career of legendary comedian, game show host and meat pie enthusiast, Jim “Look At What You Could Have Won” Bowen as a limbo dancer.

Bully For You Jim!

Bowen has made it onto Team Limbo GB for the Olympics, which should be starting next week with a bit of luck.

He has been installed as second favourite in the Individual Lean With Bandana category of the sport. His main opposition is from the legend that is Dolly Parton, which is surprising.

Worryingly he is sponsored by G4S.

Bend for Britain Jim!
