"Reports claim Olympic kayaker capsized after hitting underwater sofa"

MSNPaul Kelso, a journalist for Sky Sports in the UK, reported on Friday that an Olympic kayaker had capsized after hitting a submerged couch.
No, really.

The report, which immediately sparked the #kayaksofa hashtag on Twitter, was not corroborated by anyone else. Nevertheless, the organizers are taking it seriously enough as to investigate it.

Look, we are well aware that certain aspects of the games — particularly the Olympic village — aren’t exactly up to standard. You’d think, though, that an Olympic kayaker would be able to participate without the fear of capsizing on errant furniture.
Watching a Scott Adams broadcast yesterday, I heard him say whenever you combine two things that don't go together, you create a lasting memory. Example: 'brainwashing' and now 'kayaksofa'.

The fact they can even come up with such a thing tells you how bad this farce is.

The Olympics make the Trump campaign look competent.

You mean Hillary.

It's back to dead even after that "terrible" week Trump had exposing the Moslem Brotherhood shill. A few more "terrible" weeks and he'll be up 50.

Any observations not lockstep will be considered treason.

No, but they will be disagreed with.

You have 2 choices. I don't see any of our "He really blew it this time" chorus saying anything about Trump's "endorsements" Friday night.

This happens all the time in the Gowanus Canal. The kayaks always seem to bump into a floating Puerto Rican. So what's the big deal?

At least a sofa was useful for something at one time. Oooooooo, as they say in New Jersey.

This is not an Onion headline. The entire Russian para-Olympic team was banned for rampant drug violations. The regular Olympic Committee should have had the stones to ban the entire Olympic team as well.
