FENCING LOOKS PRETTY SWEET

Cheers to Boston.com and Getty Images for putting together this remarkable gallery of the women's fencing competition in Beijing.  Rule of thumb: huge-ass pictures make even the boring Olympic sports look dramatic and cool.

Some of the better photos are thumbnailed below, and just to make things interesting I've included a couple Photoshops from Something Awful's compilation on how to spice up the Olympics.  See if you can spot the fakes.  Hint: if you guessed the one where the fencers are wearing stilts on a high-wire during a lightning storm with a jumbo jet closing in on them… I'm sorry, that's incorrect.  That's an actual photo of the event.  At least that's what the Chinese government told me.
