Olympian downdumbing

Britain has had a Department for Culture, Media and Sport since 1992. If the very concept of that weren't downdumbed enough to make you want to retch elitist and intellectual blood, just stick around for the next sentence, dear. Of late, the really-not-at-all-corrupt-and-really-INCREDIBLY-honest-and-hard-done-by Secretary of State Tessa Jowell has started calling herself "the Olympics Minister". I really do think I'd rather eat a ground glass dumpling than stick around for "London 2012", when a load of musclebound, drug-stuffed morons will be running around pointlessly at MY sodding expense.
