    I'm also getting sick of hearing them say that. A better line is 'if phelps wasn't in the USA team, GB would be 2nd'

    if phelps was a nation he'd be ripe for a good invasion, some air strikes and jolly good pillaging

    fucking pointless though. He is in the US team so why make the point?

    If Phelps was a nation would he be a member of the Axis of Evil or the coalition of the willing? :hmm:

    If Phelps was a nation he'd not have veto power at the UN.

    Weren't they suggseting that viewers should send in flag designs for this mythical Phelps nation?

    I wonder if they could get caught out again, like they did with that London 2012 logo that was inspired by a certain infamous meme... :hmm:

    It was entertaining this morning watching the news. Someone was outraged because no one was outraged by his marjuana use.

    He's 23, FFS. Let him be 23.

    I was disappointed he apologised. Would have preferred "Yep, don't mind a hit now and then. I fucking deserve it."
