Incidentally, is it "Great Britain" or "United Kingdom"? I know Great Britain (and Prince Charles) is a part of the United Kingdom, but I've seen it written both ways. It would seem to me that the UK would be the most accurate. Or is this just another example of the English just pushing their weight around because they have the Queen (and...uh...Prince Charles)? Bottom line, I chose "United Kingdom" because it worked better for the joke. But, what's the true answer?
Seriously, Canada? Don't feel too badly, you'll totally kick ass at the Winter Olympics. And as for those smarty-pants from China? Okay, they'll probably do pretty well there, too. But, Jamaica can go suck it.
By way of comparison, the tiny nation of Uzbekistan (Urdu for "Land Without Flushing Toilets") has won only one medal in London. This was a Bronze awarded to Abbos Atoev for defeating India's Vijender Singh in Boxing (Middleweight Division).
