Sochi, Black Sea - It's spooky how not even the sight of red-hot tennis ace Maria Sharapova's perky 32-DD tits nor Vladimir Putin girlfriend Alina Kabaeva's slinky ass could fire up one of five illuminated Olympic Rings at the Winter Olympic Games opening ceremony tonight.
Stunned spectators were left reeling as the official Olympic logo ring failed to morph according to plan in what some reckon could be the first of many bizarre glitches to hex the 2014 Russian Games.
Within seconds the global Twitterati response took to the air ranting about how the failed Olympic ring looks just like the official logo of Brit oil and gas company BP.
'Ha! Must Be Bob Dudley's Revenge!' one message said referring to the ex-BP Russia CEO who fled the country in 2008 after the KGB bugged his office and raided his home on spurious corruption charges.
Tonight the oil and gas giant is staying schtum despite certain directors chuckling away at the sheer schadenfreude of it all.
A barrel of Brent sweet light crude tips the scales at around $100.
