Send in the Clowns!

Are you ready for some Winter Olympics?!!

Yeah, you know surprisingly, I'm not either. Although now that we've been around for four years, this'll give wadE another opportunity to bemoan the X-ification of the Games. So I'll be looking forward to that.

In any event, it's this story that's got me particularly concerned about the entire event. They've given the closing ceremonies over to the clowns. And not just any clowns, but Federico Fellini's special clowns. Go ahead, click here if you dare. They're using the actual costumes from that.

If you can get past the clowns, you'll also be treated to a musical passing of the torch, from Andrea Bocelli to Avril Lavigne. My question is: why not Celine Dion?

Oh, and did I mention the Sparks of Passion Bladers?

To be fair, this may actually be enough of a spectacle that I'll have to tune in, but I'm not sure that's quite what the organizers had in mind.
