You're so right...China actually provided their "birth certificates" to the Int'l Gymnastics Committee...fresh off the printing press.

August 25, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterJack Flynn

That is funny.

October 8, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterRyan G

And we (USA) lost to them. I don't know how we can laugh at that.

October 8, 2008 | Unregistered Commentermake us look bad

We lost to them because the younger you are, the more agile you are. Which is perfect for gymnastics.

USA should be number 1 in everything! USA forever! China bad! USA Good! Sports are everythingggggggggg

And they were in their homeland, and they probably had government sponsered training sessions that they HAD to attend, and they obviously had better comraderie, and friendship with their teammates.

October 8, 2008 | Unregistered Commenterwannabedesi

"...they probably had government sponsered training sessions that they HAD to attend..."

Try, they're taken from their homes when they are about 5 or 6 years old and trained day in and day out for that one task.

October 8, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterDarkMantle

There were probably more of them. These are just the ones that survived the training. The ones that were not shot, mutilated or whatever else they do to little girls over there that can't make reeboks for you!

Like many nations that are not hormone-laced meat and corn fed, ultra healthy off spring of ultra-healthy folk, the Chinese age of puberty is a lot higher! Here in Canada, especially in the poorer, quieter living areas, our girls don't even start to show puberty at an age where American off spring are sexually active and possibly have had multiple sex partners and fear contracting STDs! Hegemony in this case is almost expected, but if you ask a doctor he will tell you that not only do American girls mature faster, American people , in general have larger bodies, and we have had to adjust things like car sizes, chair sizes, home sizes and clothing sizes to reflect these recent(last 50 years)changes. God help the poor little Chinese female athletes, they don't even start to bleed until they are 17 or 18, and we expect them to have fully developed and large breasts just to compete with our hormone meat and vitamin fed super-humans!

October 11, 2008 | Unregistered Commenteravidan the sane

plus, you and your mom gets her dildos from china

October 11, 2008 | Unregistered Commenteravidan the sane

I have a girlfriend, never bothered wasting time with phonesex, i'm not bad looking (but my girlfriend is biased), my IQ is just above average, weigh 180 lbs, prefer Quiznos over whoppers, and I walked 20 miles yesterday out of boredom. According to your logic, that makes me the Anti-American. Maybe I should apply for citizenship in Amsterdam?

Btw, I live in New Jersey.

October 11, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterDarian Knight

I can't contest the origin of those cheaply made dildos though... so you still made a point.

October 11, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterDarian Knight

I will have you know I am not biased dear, I love you and you are very handsome, but we have to talk about this dildo situation.

October 11, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterSapphire

Damn.. busted.

October 11, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterDarian Knight

USA competitors are the only one that aren't drug tested because USA guarantees they are not using drugs to get better scores but that's totally wrong and discriminating.

October 11, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterMe

Wow, make up some more facts there "me".

October 11, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterMe2

So true... those chinese girls were sooo under-age. It's too bad we didn't get those medals!

October 11, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterDavey J

half of americans are over-weight! lol
that's why you need da bigger vehicles hehehe...

October 11, 2008 | Unregistered Commenterme

These comments make me want to strangle puppies and rape kittens. Regardless of nationality, the internet is full or retards like yourselves. That and trolls, lots of trolls.

excuse me, I'm not fat , ugly, or stupid. and while I do know a few stupid people at school, my friend group is pretty smart. a bunch of techies who philosophize about life by day, and create programs by night.
as for phonesex, I've always wanted to call up one of those lines and just prank them. I've never understood why you would have sex on a phone with someone.
and I WISH we could still drive those SUV's. I've seen trucks on the sides of roads with big signs on them saying "please! just take it!" the gas is just too expensive.

also, the whole fat thing some people have been wondering if it could be caused by a disease. I looked into it actually and results were interesting. they're still conducting the study, but it is something to think about. I know some people that were skinny all their lives. they hung out with some fat friends and then they blew up like blimps!

Show a little pride for your country. And if you don't like America, why don't you go somewhere else?

October 12, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterPangamma

October 12, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterCUL8TA

Chill everybody. 'S all in good fun. Christ's sake, we fucking Americans take everything so seriously.
All of you just remove that sideways stick from your asses, take some deep breaths, and look at the comic again.
Feel better now?

October 12, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterBella

I think I missed most of the 'games', except for the huge snafu about the Windoze Blue Screen Of Death, on the stadium wall, as the guy 'ran' around the CGI weather... and, the windoze logo that crashed...

Don't all humans really only see what their perspective permits? And, don't we all speak with the tongues we have acquired in our socialization? has 315 complete and game filled, suite crammed FREE OSes, that run in the CDROM, Live, virus proof!

October 13, 2008 | Unregistered Commenterlinuxiac

Americans aren't any more stupid than any other people in the World BUT because of their relative isolation they have become more insular and ignorant of what is happening in the rest of the World ouside of what they are involved in.

Interestingly some of the Americans I have become friends with are those who have actually travelled outside of their own country rather than those who elected to not travel outside the USA.

btw, there is a huge difference between TV/cinema Americans and the real people, something a lot of non-americans don't get.

October 15, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterMilander

Americans are stupid, Chinese are inteligent.

October 16, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterAntUK

Will people just stop being such sore losers? This is simply pathetic how America in general is ranting about this. Chill. They have been cleared after an investigation by the Olympics Committee. BTW, how do we know Shawn Johnson is truly sixteen, cause she sure doesn't look it?

October 21, 2008 | Unregistered CommenterBrandon

i missed the olymipics

October 21, 2008 | Unregistered Commenterme3

Doesn't matter, they were better than us, get the fuck over it.

November 26, 2008 | Unregistered Commentersammi

The Chinese were better. Get over it, and move past gymnastics that are centered on the gymnasts personalities and instead focus on sharpening their talents.
