You are not allowed to joke anymore...

<Rant>

As of this moment, you are no longer allowed to make jokes about the opposite sex. No more saying something that you think might be funny, if at least one other person in this world could possibly be offended by your statement. Appropriate? No, but come on! He's not the Olympics Official saying this will be the way the tie is decided. It was a joke. Snicker and move on.

</Rant>

<Link below snippet>

Justin Gatlin made the U.S. Olympic team for London over the weekend by winning the 100m at the Olympic Trials. On the women's side, the U.S. still doesn't have a third entrant in the 100m because Allyson Felix and Jeneba Tarmoh finished in dead heat.

While Felix and Tarmoh are deciding between a run-off or a coin flip, Gatlin offered a third, sexist option: a mud/Jell-O wrestling match.

"I'm voting for Jell-O wrestling match," Gatlin said. "Red Jell-O. That's my favorite."

Oh see, that's supposed to be funny! The fact Felix and Tarmoh have worked just as hard as Gatlin to get to the Olympics as sprinters should be thrown out. Ignore their accomplishments as athletes and focus on the fact Gatlin wants to be titillated.

He's a funny guy, making a joke. He's married with a little boy. I'm at the Trials all week, and I am involved in the track community. I've met him - He's a good guy who just wants to stay from any controversy after the doping

People...especially women...are wayyyyy too uptight these days! There's nothing wrong with a little humor...or the occasional Jell-O wrestling match.

Get over it people! It ain't that easy to see that line anymore. Somehow it's okay to say that sh*t on a comedy show during prime time but some dumb*ss TV personality blurts it out and he should lose his job? No way!

I agree people are too thinned skinned these days. But that's the culture we live in so suck it up and watch what you say. I took a new job last year after 14 years at my old one. Biggest difference, I could cuss freely at the old one (of course I paid attention to who was in earshot) I wouldn't even try it at the new one...too PC here.

Wait a minute. This is likely NOT fact. Gatlin actually WON his race. I'd classify that as maybe working a tad harder. These two did not, apparently. Amazing how people twist actual facts to make some alternate universe fact to support their agenda.

This isn't to say people should be mean toward each other, but the fact jello 'rasslin' is a contest, just as much so as a sprint race is, should be thrown out as well then.


This makes about as much sense as Nazis riding dinosaurs...wait, they did that?.....
