Plenty of puppets taking part in these Olympics, that’s for sure.

I hate to say it, but that's one ugly puppy.

.....what ... the.......sorry but that thing is nasty looking & may send a very WRONG kind of message........looks like the birth of a monster.......

I believe the Olympic organisers believe they can slap “symbolise the spirit of Fukushima” on anything and they think they’re doing something for the people of Fukushima. Remember when the Olympics were to show the “spirit of Fukushima” before being taken over by “symbolizing the defeat of Coronavirus.”

But I like the puppet; it’s walking like a giant freak show.

There's another non-surprise for the Olympic ceremony.

Why can so many people here not keep a surprise?

Main string player has his mask below his nose.

Nightmarish. But then, entirely appropriate to these Games.

That's hard to look at. Please keep it hidden away.

Nightmare for children and weak hearts.

But these unnecessary projects, i wonder whose money and who gets benefit later?

The IOC is the puppet master and the puppet is Taro Q Public.

That's not finished, right? It simply can't be finished, right? Only half finished, and still being worked on by somebody with a caffeine-deprived, totally stressed out imagination, right? Designed by a committee of five year olds that didn't have fresh air being pumped into the room, right? Somebody? Anybody?

The Olympics will be the worst ever in History, and the most Financially disastrous of all time. Japan certainly will make the History books twice over here.

Furthermore, Local Residents are being advised to stay indoor for the duration of the events! I guess there will be will be a run on the SuperMarkets again... empty shelves yet again in the upcoming days to the events.

-1 ( +0 / -1 )

anyway, that puppet looks like ... nothing to do with the Olympics. Japan's Trojan horse to China ... sending back a new BIO Weapon to those who created the pandemic in the first place ? Come on Japan, at least automate it !
