The Olympics! A globe united! The great Athenian games bringing light into a darkened world. From this beacon comes forth some excellent internet humour.
The opening ceremony is on Friday, and ahead of this great occasion there have been some last minute appeals to the International Olympics Committee (IOC).
No, it's not for doping, but about new sports which really ought to be considered.
Twitter users have been using '#myolympicsportwouldbe' to make their suggestions. If the IOC is going to accept 'Handball', they can accept these ideas for goodness' sake.
