So fun to see swimmers doing boardgames!!! That`s really nice to see them finding other recreations than social media and such.

This is what happens when you've already used all 42 of your condoms.

"Risk" is pretty much the theme for these Olympic games, isn't it?

It could also be Revolution, or Coup.

I'm, I'm afraid there's been a mistake. The man who has been speaking to you is an impostor. He is not in fact the Bishop of East Anglia, but a man wanted by the police. I am the Bishop of East Anglia and anyone who doesn't believe me can look me up

Think of me as the Bishop of East Anglia
