    One of Germany’s Modern Pentathlon coaches has been thrown out of the games by the IOC for punching a misbehaving horse in the face.

    „I believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialism“

    „Don't forget you're alive. 'Cause sometimes when you walk around the city and you're in a bad mood, you can think, hey, wait a minute, we're alive! We don't know what the next second will bring and what a fantastic thing this is. This can get easily forgotten in the routine of life, and that's something I'm trying to bring to my attention at all times. Don't forget you're alive. We're not dead, you know. This is the greatest thing.”

    Was that the horse that just wanted no part of the whole thing?

    Yeah, apparently the nag in question had form for not wanting to do any of the jumps or anything.

    Rather out of order to punch him though, and quite rightly the IOC have censured the coach and kicked her out (yeah, it was a woman).

    I can assure you, that nobody is more shocked that the fastest bloke in the world is Italian then the Italians.
    Why is it a shock?

    First thing the Italians do at the sound of gunshots is run away as fast as they can.

    Evolution at work here. Bound to happen eventually.
