    Having seen Rammstein a few times and witnessed their ‘Exploding Laser Babies’, I want ‘Exploding Laser Sheep’ as a minimum

    i’m going to be on the cider watching it tonight with one of my oldest friends, mrsconsequence is going to be buzzing with britishness… even if its kinda rubbish i’ll be having a good night.

    shall i send you some drunken photos?

    EDIt – when i saw them they were chasing each other around the stage with big inflatable penis’s…. if danny boyle can’t provide that then we’ve already failed as a nation.

    Spazzed out exploding glittery sheep… one of which is kicked by Becks to light the flame…. bang tidy.

    I’ll have a pint of what your drinking… in fact I’ll have three…

    Edit: Liking the idea of the Ramstein soundtack and laser show… waiting for the home made schnaps to kick in….

    the entire audience belting out ‘we are the champions’ would be pretty awesome! then cut to a fast zoom in on a shire horse saying ‘no pressure lads’… BOOOOOOM!!!!!!.. exploding into an giant inflatable queen.

    they should’ve given me the job.

    You forgot the line of fat lads with a message of encouragement spelt out across their belly’s on the front row, and that annoying band that follows the England football team.

    I think he’s done a tremendous job … for Christ sake get behind him. He’s the man in the arena showing a pair. Good on him.

    deluded – what part of him having the opportunity and bottle to do it prevents us from taking the amber liquid? πŸ˜‰

    My precioussssssss … πŸ˜†

    I think he has forgotten the trade unions and their leaders parading in the opening ceremony with members holding placards demanding more pay.

    Then he should have separate unions all wearing their uniform again “on strike” … but parading in the opening ceremony.

    Then he should have bankers and financiers holding “loads of money” …

    Obviously we cannot miss out pen pushers and job worth … they too need to be present.

    Finally, we have all the chavs … binge drinkers … etc to conclude the parade.

    I hope not. Although, it will be talked about.

    Joking aside, I like Danny Boyle.. I’m looking forward to the show…

    But I still hope there is spazzed out exploding sheep, Ramstein, The Mac Ladds and The Shirehorses…

    and “Lay-zerrrs”

    That’s too boring predictable but no harm done other than safe bet.

    Wait a minute … how about getting all the politicians parading in the opening ceremony? I mean with placard saying “I am the best” and pumping fist into air … πŸ˜† A bit like WWF.

    a massive statue of Giant Haystacks to rise up out of one of the haystacks?

    Well the crowd have all just been covered up with huge blue sheets.

    Maybe that’s the plan for the event, then someone I’ll come found after & tell ’em all how gret it was…

    For the lighting of the Olympic flame, I reckon it will be a car chase around the stadium with some chav’s finally torching the car leaving it raised and lit on a plinth.
