London 2012 jumps the shark with bizarre chip order
The great British dish of fish and chips will be a thrilling prospect for people visiting London for the 2012 Olympics. Of course, if you're a vegetarian, you might be after nothing more than chips, which is fine. However, you won't be allowed to have chips on their own in the Olympic park because the organisers are completely mental.
As you can see from this memo which has been doing the rounds on twitter all morning, you'll only be allowed to have chips if they come with fish, thanks to a sponsorship deal with McDonald's. Not that McDonald's actually serve proper chips (more, thin potato stalks clad in scalding grease).
Best of British eh?
