Professional silly man Colin Carroll — the slight Irishman previously known for his dangerous forays into elephant polo and sumo wrestling — has hatched a new idea: he wants to host the Paddy Olympics.
"We would have the old favourites like bathtub races, backwards running and the egg-and-spoon 100 meters," Carroll told Reuters in a telephone interview from his home in the Irish city of Cork…
"For the relays we could have mixed teams — two humans and two dogs. Animals are good."
He added: "We may even be in time to host the first Paddy Olympics prior to Beijing. Dope testing would imply an entirely different thing of course."
Hmmm… I didn't see "drinking Guinness and Jameson for 10 hours to avoid the reality of being Irish" on that list of events. My Dutch Mick of an assistant editor would take the gold in that event. It's the only thing he's good at, besides masturbating and feeling guilty.
