Top 10 signs some Chinese gymnasts might be underaged children

Posted by Ron Judd

10. "A" and "B" samples for all of them came back positive for Skittles.
9. Constantly napping during floor exercise.
8. Still waiting for that pre-teen growth spurt to push them over 3 feet.
7. To stick the landing from a rings dismount, they need a permission slip from Mom.
6. Distinctive "Wheeeeeee!" can be heard during airborne portions of vaults.
5. Chinese Olympic officials pushing hard for new demonstration sport in London 2012: Synchronized Monkey Bars.
4. Absolutely can't stop giggling while peeing into dope-testing beaker.
3. For kicks, often tie their coach to his chair with those rhythmic gymnastic ribbons.
2. One of them recently appealed his bedtime to international Court of Arbitration for Sport.
1. After practice, they go straight back to the Nike factory floor.

Note: Surely this, coupled with all the excellent FREE TIBET comments attached to the posts below, is enough to get us censored from Chinese Internet servers. If not, well, there's just no injustice anymore.
