Have you ever noticed that you never see Clare Balding and Eddie Izzard together?

∧ ∧  They used the same cinematic trickery that allowed Tom Hardy to play both Kray twins in Legend 😉😉

The winter olympics really just seemed a collection of stoners competing in a series of events which were a complete lottery as to whether you would even complete let alone win. I especially enjoyed MMA speed skating, surely the most idiotic sport to have a policy of no contact (unless you're the host country).

Shouldn't we now be having a special Winter Paralympics?  Where everyone who broke their leg on the Luge or Downhill gets to race again in a plaster cast.

Not sure which TV guide it was, but for yesterday's program list, it had, at 8pm 'The Last Leg of the Paralympics'.

Now that made me chuckle.

The last leg is a comedy chat show format that was initially started at the last Paralympics. It is hosted by a one legged Australian and a guy with arm and leg deformaties. The title is a play on words but is now a regular mainstream program. Been going for 4 years now.
