In an occasional series, Gingerfightback brings to you some of the great and good down the years who have proudly borne the chinstrap. As The Beatles sang, “Yesterday, all my chinstraps seemed so far away, now it looks as though they’re here to stay….”.


“You Know What Usain Bolt”

You chicken out his cadence?

Joe Frazier, Ali, A Chicken, A Chinstrap, A Thriller! 

Da Vinci – a genius, a chinstrap a Yorkshire Pudding

Remember Him? The chinstrap was little help sadly

Here is Jose “The Special One” Mourinho;


Here Is The Pope!


And here is Steve McQueen!

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 –  History was made yesterday!

Usain Bolt did the sprint double, lolloping round the 200 metres in next to no time and became the first man to defend both sprint titles.

Team GB’s Nicola Adams became the first woman to win a gold in boxing when she beat China’s Rencan in a thrilling contest.

Holland tonked GB 9-2 to go into the men’s hockey final. As you known thish givesh ush der chancesh to do der Dutsch accshent fur a liddle while.

A couple of sports to look out for.

1. The Men’s 4×4 Gibber

A sport with a training regime like no other. Drinking, smoking, tottering, poor bladder control, teeth staining, sitting in pubs talking cobblers and eating greasy food of dubious quality on the way home, whilst talking more nonsense.

Every day. For decades.

“Gibber is to human endeavour what Big Bang Theory is to the salad dressings.” Stephen Hawking

“I think therefore I gibber.” D’escartes

“Has anyone seen my socks?” Billy Bob Thornton

Team GB’s Quartet of Harding, O’Brien, Smyth and the anchorman Henderson, will be going for gold.

“Top Gibber!” we hope to be saying this evening. A film of their exploits, “Gibbers of Fire” is to be released later in the year.

Expect strong competition from the Nepalese.

2. Broad Bean Knee Crush

As Jacques Rogge said, “Let legumes begin!”

For vegetable fanciers the highlight of the games. Jumping from a height of 10 metres, competitors seek to crush broad beans, laid out in the image of Lord Coe, with their knees.

A sport that really gets the pulses racing.

Etienne Louvre is the favourite for the gold but expect Lambang Sillowotbanglangtangbingbangabongivegotalovelybunchofcoconuts from Thailand to press her hard.

Enjoy The Games!

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!
