Britain is proud of you!

The Olympics are over.

Ginger Sooty is in the wash along with me smalls and as it is good drying weather today, I will hang him out in the garden rather than on the clothes horse in the loft of Fightback Towers.

He will be back, fluffed and buffed for his next Reportage.

Many thanks to the thousands of you who took the time to read his in-depth reports. I understand that Pluckery Clubs, Octagenarian Bollock Drop and Roll Clubs and Donkey Dangling Clubs across the UK have seen a spike in enquiries.

We hope we have played a small part in getting people of their settees and gibbering for at least thirty minutes a day.

It has been a great Olympics for Gingers. Below are some of our Titian Titans!

To the youngsters who got in touch to talk about being bullied because they are Ginger, please take inspiration from these people. Talk to your parents, family members or teachers about the problems you are having.

Ginger Sooty, GLOVE PUPPET OF DREAMS provides a daily round-up of events at the London 2012 Olympics that are, quite simply London 2012.

Well Folks –  We’re done!

Wigs off to Mo Farah for winning the 5,000 metres and also to the Jamaican 4×100 metres team for breaking the world record on their way to gold.

David Boudia of the US won the 10 metre diving (with titchy trunks on).

Tamara Echegoyen Dominguez, Sofia Toro Prieto Puga and Angela Pumariega Menendez of Spain  won gold in the women’s Elliott 6m Sailing

Another great sailor was Kirk Douglas. The photo shows what happened to his boat. Ahoy there!


I would like to see the theme of the Summer Fete being incorporated into the closing ceremony and not all of that esoteric power blather. All played out over a dodgy PA system.

So first up would be The Donkey Derby;

Then; Glamorous Granny

Followed by;  Knobbly Knees!

Then; The Triathlon!

Finally of course – The Raffle!

First Prize – A Christmas Hamper

Second Prize – A Set of Cotton Sheets

Third Prize – A Bottle of Pomagne

Fourth Prize – A Kettle (With Lead)

Fifth Prize – A Pair Of Slippers

Sixth Prize – A Lamp (Without Shade)

Hopefully the rain will hold off for it.

I Hope You Enjoyed  The Games!

Nighty Night

Go Mo!

Suits Him!

Another Ginger Gold!

Ginger Sooty, GLOVE PUPPET OF DREAMS provides a daily round-up of events at the London 2012 Olympics that are, quite simply London 2012.

Well Folks –  What A Day!

The 100 metres was won by Usain Bolt ans as forecast by Goingerfightback a couple of weeks ago he did it with a chicken on his head!

But the highlight was Asafa Powell’s goatee – what on earth was he thinking about?

Italy beat Team GB in the foil. We hope to gain revenge in the cling film.

In sailing Sweden won the Men’s Star Class (we don’t know what it means either – why can’t they say big boat, little boat, pedillo?).

Congratulations to Andy Murray for singing the national anthem after he won the Gold in the tennis. He has set Scottish independence back 15 years!

A couple of sports to look out for.

1. Octogenarian Bollock Drop and Roll –  You will be aghast at the stretchy tessies elderly gentlemen possess. The record bollock roll of 23 feet will be under threat.

Favourite is 104 year old Kano Sackorollo from Japan,  whose danglers recently played a crucial role in helping to evacuate the plane carrying him to London after an emergency occurred on board. The escape shutes failed to activate and Kano rolled out his scrotum to allow passengers to slide to safety.

Expect (non) stiff competition from Spain’s Manuel Cardosa who hires his knackers out as a marquee!

2. Bouncing Bards 1500 metres

Athletics and Poetry combine to produce a remarkable spectacle. Poets hop around the track and recite poems written by local halfwits. Three and a half laps of the track and every poem will rhyme!

Can they take it? Will their berets stay on? Will they try to stroke Asafa’s goatee?

Favourite for the gold is Guatemala’s champion nose poet Jorge Belch who secured the world crown from Germany’s Gritt Beemer in controversial circumstances in Berlin this year.

Enjoy The Games!

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?

Sweet Jesus
