PETA isn't going to like this Olympic Sport

As the second week of Olympic competition is now in full swing the training runs for a new addition to the games are now underway. The Nordic Combined Downhill Feline Shooting Relay is set to have the preliminaries tonight in prime time and the medal round on Saturday.
You haven't heard of this event? Well it's new to the Vancouver games this year. It works like this. There are two components the down hill and then the shooting. The skier at the top of the hill does a downhill run with a .30-06 rifle strapped to their back. At the bottom he passes off to the shooter who then has to kill a Cougar, a Lynx, or a Mountain Lion that has been caged up. When the skier crosses the finish line the cage springs open and the cat makes a run for it. Lowest combined time wins. (The picture to the right shows one of the training runs)
Now NBC hasn't exactly been promoting the heck out of this competition (kind of like the way they are burying curling on MSNBC) mostly because of reports that Bob Costas is actually a covert member of PETA. Costas is "outraged" at those "Blood thirsty savages" as he calls the Canadians and plans on removing himself from the coverage. The competition will have a new host and commentator in the person of renowned big game hunter Ted Nugent. Mary Carillo however has no qualms about broadcasting the event even though she is known to be a cougar herself.
Not surprisingly the Canadians are favorites to medal in the competition and there has been much controversy because the Americans has accused them of rigging the course to let the cats get away. Be sure to tune in as this is sure to be a ratings winner. It's got to be better than ice dancing right?

LOL @ Mandy! Hee hee... I hate to see a kitty be hunted down, but you're right, beats ice prancing by a mile.

This would set a ratings record! NBC might even show it on the main network. haha

Doc said...

Sorry, I couldn't help it ya'll. I saw that picture of the Lynx interrputing the downhill skiing runs and I just had to go there...

Micky-T said...

Good one Doc, maybe PETA would go for skunks, possum and large rats.

Anndi said...

What? We had to come up with something to replace baby seal clubbing.

You have GOT to be fucking joking!!!!

The only possibly useful thing that could happen is if every participant missed their shot and broke their fucking necks.

I would then cheerfully piss on their graves.

Total wankers.

Sorry for swearing so much but I am now very cross indeed.

Four Dinners said...

And I will stamp my foot cause I didn't read the label or previous comments.

That's what happens when I'm sober...;-)

Doc said...

HAHAAHAHAAAA!!!!

Anndi said...

Dude, this is better than April Fool's Day. Four Dinners had me howling.

Doc said...

Jay said...

LOL @ 4D ... That dude is awesome. And he's right. Never read blogs while sober. haha ;-)

Look up "gullible" in the dictionary and you'll see my picture there.
