oooh the Olypics are here. Watched a few of the swimming heats this morning, then I've watched the end of the cycling road race, but unfortunately no podium finish for the Brits.
But that does lead me to something I heard on the radio the other day, which surely deserves the gold medal for mangling the English language.
Now we all know in corporate speak they are fond of making verbs out of nouns, but this has got to take the cake.
Or I should probably say ... cake it.
A spokeswoman for Team GB, who shall remain nameless lest she be summarily executed by the massed disgusteds of Tunbridge Wells, gave us these immortal words,
"Everyone in the team wants to medal .... they are all hoping to podium..."
And her tongue was nowhere near her cheek!
Just had to keyboard that for you all
