It is refreshing to watch the Olympics on TV. I so enjoy watching them and I also enjoy the humor that comes along with the games. I posted a few of the humor jokes below- We all need to take some stress off. Just think of the hundreds who trained but fell short of this years teams. Some may not have another chance.
•At the Olympic Games, Rhoda meets a man carrying an eight-foot-long metal stick.
‘Excuse me,’ says Rhoda to the man. ‘Are you a pole vaulter?’
‘No,”‘ says the man, ‘I’m German, but how did you know my name is Walter?’
Paul Hamm, Gymnast: “I owe a lot to my parents, especially my mother and father.”

It’s the 2012 Olympics. The final of the Hammer Throw event is shaping up for an exciting finish. It’s all come down to a Russian military officer, an American farmer and an unemployed Scouser.
The Russian throws first: 85 metres, just short of the world record.
Interviewed after the event he said, “My grandfather was in the military, my father was in the military and I am in the military. This gives me strength and discipline.”
Then the American throws: 88 metres, breaking the world record.
Interviewed after the event he said, “My grandfather was a farmer, my father was a farmer and I am a farmer. This gives me strength and discipline.”
The Scouser saunters up to the nets, gobs at the TV cameras and slings the hammer 95 metres, breaking the world record and winning gold for Great Britain.
Interviewed after the event he said, “My grandfather was unemployed, my father was unemployed and both said to me, ‘If anyone ever puts a hammer in your hand, throw it as far as you friggin can’.”
