Hobbits, horses and horrific noise



On Friday night, I tuned in to BBC1 all set to watch The Olympic Ceremony(even though it clashed with big brother). So there I was sat down in front of the TV when before my eyes appeared a replica of 'The Shires' from The Lord of the Rings on the stage. We are English, not hobbits. I had absolutley no idea what the whole 'olden day village' and horse and carts were about, until my dad pointed out that they were showing Britian through the ages: cue the 'oh yeaahhhh'. I'll admit that the ceremony did teach me one thing, a whole new angle on Brunel, who they made out to be some sort of evil dictator. And then the drums started playing and I actually wanted to put some ear plugs in, it was that loud and noisey. Okay, so i'll admit I couldnt help but feel a little bit proud when the olympic rings, made out of flames, joined each other in the air, but then supposed NHS workers started dancing and an inflatable Voldemort appeared on stage. From there it went even more downhill (if thats possible) , they showed a film of Daniel Craig and the Queen getting into a helicopter and then they supposedly jumped out at the stadium. Of course most people realised that an 86 year old woman could not jump out of a helicopter, with the exception of the few who had their facebook status' as 'The Queen is so amazing, cant believe she jumped out of the helicopter!'. Great, now our olympics will be a worldwide laughing stock- but I suppose they didnt think of that when they decided that two hundred Mary Poppins should fly down from the sky, with glowing umbrellas.

  15. That was a pretty funny account of the Olympics Ceremony! And I think you were both amused and entertained. Though I would suggest you do invest in a good pair of earplugs. If you think noise from the TV can be loud, imagine if you’re in a rock concert or in a fireworks display show – the noise would be just too extreme for your ears to handle! So, better prepare for these and protect your ears.
