Friday Funny – Climate Olympics

There’s too many scientific sports to include in one panel. I was really looking forward to seeing Josh’s rendition of the 400 Meter Skeptics Hurdles.

15.000 awarded to Josh. With no deductions. Could be higher, but these guys reduce the degree of difficulty. Unless they advance even beyond parody (they are close), which would result in a score of 18.233.

“I was really looking forward to seeing Josh’s rendition of the 400 Meter Skeptics Hurdles.”

Perfect rotation, feet together, toes pointed, and verticle, no splash entry. 10! 10! 10!. Had to throw the other 10’s out according to rules.

Very funny.
I also hear that the Manhattan water polo championship was canceled again.

I know it’s not an olympic sport, but what about “America’s Next Top Climate Model”?

August 10, 2012 9:33 am

And then sent home for being a dope.

August 10, 2012 9:35 am

What? Where’s the off-balance beam?

In these cartoons, I can never tell Mann from Gavin. Doppelgangers. I assume that’s Mann.

Rock ‘n’ roll!
I’m thinking Synchronised Swimming, though, especially the bit where they all surface, smiling and relieved, in perfect harmony. Yay the Team!

Figure scating. One judge (Jones) leans over to the other and says “To keep that last performance out, we need to re-define a triple axle”,

Arctic ocean canoe event was cancelled due to non cooperating climate conditions.
And competitor frostbite.

The dash to publish — Is this the final heat?

One glaring omission – Conclusion-jumping!

Dagfinn, aren’t you aware that these are not ordinary, everyday models? These are super models, you know, the kind that are on magazine covers and are paid millions of dollars (aka grants).

How about statistical gymnastics and dodgeball?

O/T, but Gleick is spouting same old nonsense on Twitter.
“Peter Gleick ‏@PeterGleick
Hot? Not only is 2012 the hottest year ever in the U.S., it is not even close. Brutal figure from NOAA. #climatechange
You Twitter WUWT users should take him on. I don’t tweet.

The same lack of wind, which has all but stopped the UK fleet of wind turbines, has also resulted in the Olympic sailing competition nearly grinding to a halt. Scroll down for time 13:12 here:

With all this so-called Global Warming, they can have an inaugural Skating-on-Thin-Ice event.

August 10, 2012 1:50 pm

Anyone for the High Jump?

August 10, 2012 2:55 pm

Thanks, Josh!
Very good, made my day. 🙂

So much pun.
Mental gymnastics.
The marathon race (where the finish line is 20 feet away [well it is URGENT, we must act NOW] )
Wrestling… with Steve McIntyre.
Pole vault (over the high bar)

August 10, 2012 11:04 pm

Wrestling… with Steve McIntyre.

Or Joe Bastardi.

Josh, I hadn’t seen that one. Thanks. I realize the pun is too obvious to not have been used before.

Climate Myopics.

Also: the Rings of Collusion (another synchronisation event), the FOI Denial back somersault with a triple twist, the Uneven Parallel Drawing, the Springboard to Fame and a publication of contrary information event called The 400 Hurdles.

If ClimateGates taught us anything, the Team is unparalleled in Synchronized Scheming

August 11, 2012 4:07 pm

Other possible events:
Carbon Polo
Message, or riding trick ponies sideways for the media
News cycling

When I was in High School, the 400m was known as the Puke Race, which is what most of contestants did after it was over…

All scores are adjusted up to account for UHI induced dehydration in competitors.
