Fit to Drop

Experts have warned Olympic athletes not to shake hands with spectators in case they pick up infections.

The ways in which I could have posted today with this story are varied and numerous. There can't be a satire programme on tv, radio, or relevant magazine who won't have a field day with this.

What do they think is going to happen? Hordes of foreigners coming over here with their nasty foreign germs. The working classes thronging to see the stars as they go about their daily business, coughing on their hands and then offering a handshake?

I suggest that from now until the actual Olympics, all UK athletes should live in oxygen tents, eating only sterilised food and, should they need to venture out, don space suits to protect them from a stray streptococcus.

After all, we wouldn't want any of our athletes to slump to 17th from their expected high of 15th!

  • Actually, I'm with the experts on this. I personally never shake hands with the prols - one doesn't know where they've been; could catch anything. Urgh.

    And why doesn't my Gravatar work on your site anymore?
