Olympic enthusiasts around the globe have been greatly anticipating the 2008 Summer Games in Beijing, People's Republic of China.
Chinese officials have tipped their upside down wok shaped hats toward Sicily and agreed to introduce Bocce ball as a new Olympic sport. Good will seemed to be reigning around all matters pertaining to this summer's Chinese Games until big trouble broke out in little China, also known as Tibet.
Tibetan monks began a protest this wek demanding to be included in the Chinese Olympic games. Chinese officials have tried to keep the ancient and traditional religion of Tibetan Buddhism at a distance. The People's Republic of China prides itself on its Marxist, Leninist, Maoist, neo-capitalist, totalitarian secular humanism. Plus, they think Buddha is a bad role model for an event that idealizes fitness.
In a surprising compromise, Chinese military officials have agreed to admit the Tibetan Monks Fiery Run as an exhibition event during the opening ceremonies.
