Facebook Funnies VI

"I said 'Get...the...F...OUT!'"

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX


  We interrupt today's Facebook Funnies (oh, wait, Facebook Funnies are done) for today's Olympics Update:


  Controversy mars the start of the London Olympics when organizers flashed the SOUTH Korean flag as they were introducing the NORTH Korean Womens football team (NOTE:  BTW, I'm glad they're calling it football not soccer).


  The North Koreans walked off the pitch (NOTE:  But, c'mon, throw me a bone!  It's a field, not a pitch.  A pitch is what a baseball player does.  Or something you use to set heretics on fire.).  


  After repeated apologies, promise of North Sea oil-drilling rights, a lifetime supply of Creamettes, an autographed picture of Channing Tatum for the team, and Lindsay Lohan for their leader, Kim Jong Un, the team whupped Colombia, 2-0 (NOTE:  For my American friends, in football/soccer that is a whupping).


  When asked to explain the Flippin' Flag Flap (NOTE: Feel free to use that bit of creative alliteration), London Olympics Chairman Sir Reginald Yourmothersdrawers III had this to say:  "Well, bloody 'ell!  What are their bloody problems with their bloody flag?  It's all bloody Greek to me, anyway."  (NOTE: Please excuse my repeated,  gratuitous use of the term "bloody.")


Well, Sir Reginald....

This is the South Korean flag.
Seen on consumer electronics worldwide.



This is North Korea's flag.
Not only is it the symbol of  one of the world's craziest places,
the people can also eat it.
This is the Greek flag.
They may not do so hot in the Olympics,
but how many nude beaches are in Korea, north or south?

  1. The whole thing was ridiculous, in my eyes it would be like them having a Mexican flag at an American game. I loved this post though Al, I bet after that signed Channing Tatum photo was offered they were all over it. At least the Korean team managed to win pretty comfortably, I've heard that North Korea is the best Korea after all.

    1. As usual your mind's going to see a completely different side to "all over it," isn't it Al? :P Bad choice of wording on my part haha.

    2. You beat me to it. Mr. Tatum is reputed to be one hot dude. Luckily, I wouldn't know if a dude was hot or not. I'll just have to take the ladies word for it.

  2. You bloody Yanks will never understand. While "soccer" is football, the "field" is called a pitch. I looked it up in an Oxford Dictionary. By definition, it is an area which is marked out for use in a game, yada, yada, yada. I can say "bloody Yanks" because I am one, but I thought that my point would carry more weight if I worded so.

    Proceed good Sir.

    1. Isn't "bloody" a fun word to use?

    2. Etiquette dictates that "bloody" is a bit rude and should never be said in front of your granny or the Queen - "bloomin'" is much better e.g. "Bloomin' 'eck yer Maj', is that a crown on yer head?"

    3. So, I'm guessing, "Pass the fucking potatoes, Bets." is probably a little over the top, too?
      Oh, F, I don't know who to talk to anymore.

  3. Hmm, all I can think about is nude beaches in Korea... I'm betting there aren't any!
    Great and funny post Al...

  4. It's a football pitch not a field, we invented football before you lot invented baseball so we've got dibs.

    1. I think you have dibs on baseball (rounders) too.

  5. I heard that they played the North Korean anthem for the South Korean team. I hadn't heard about a flag problem. It's funny from the outside, but I can understand why the Koreans (both of them) would be pissed.

  6. It's their own fault for having such a stupid-ass boring flag. The flag of North Korea should be a giant portrait photo of Hotlips Houlihan, who did much for Koreans of all persuasions. I bet no one would get confused about a flag like that.

  7. Football, soccer pfft whatever. And the flag switch up haha funny indeed, might piss others off though and maybe that lightning should be listened too.

  9. You take complicated issues and make them simple enough for me to understand. I'm not sure if this is a good thing or not. Ha!

  10. Maybe they can make up for it by flashing South Korea's flag when introducing North Korea's soccer team. Toss in the Greek flag for the Spanish synchronized swimmers...I'm glad to get Olympic updates from you, and only you, Al. It's all I can handle. Thanks!

    1. Those Korean fellers can be wicked touchy, though. I'm hoping the Spanish synchronized swimmers use flamenco. The Greeks will be on the beach.

  11. @Mark: Well, I guess if you had to eat kimchi all the time, you'd be cranky, too.
    @GB: Probably take their minds off that whole "nothing to eat" thing.
    @Pat: They picked the wrong people to tick off. Those guys really need more fiber. Or to get laid.
    @Sherilin: As long as they confess first.
    @Eva: You should see me explain this complex matter through the use of interpretative dance.
    @Stephen: Next up: quantum physics and the Mideast peace process. With puppets.

  13. Laurie told me someone said Romney was in trouble for telling the Brits they might not have a handle on running an Olympics. I told her this story and said, I think Mitt's right on this one.

    BTW, no comment on the FF. I can't top yours this time!

  14. You should learn to use your bloody "bloody's" bloody right.

  15. @ryoko: There's always "The Three Stooges" On Demand.
    @CW: He is in a bit of a twist. But at least he'll accept the bust of Winston Churchill unless the Brits tell us to go F ourselves (couldn't blame them). I hope he's wrong, but the world is a crazy frikkin' place.
    @Symdaddy: We just normally say "fuckin'" Which is Anglo-Saxon in origin, isn't it? But, don't you say "feckin'"? I like "frikkin'", myself. Good thing I used a comma right there, huh? Bloody right!

  16. No more flags. I suggest they determine a team astrological sign.

    Yeesh. Sorry. I got nothin'.

  17. Maybe Gemini...because they're twins...? Sure, one's a psycho twin given to bad haircuts and nuclear missiles, but twins nonetheless.

  19. I just found out the Olympics are happening, like, right now. I am sitting here, eating popcorn and leaving you a comment, and someone in London is NOT on their ass doing something great.
