Chiquita Banana Olympics Stickers:  1980


The Brazilian Olympics are in big trouble, as recent news articles tell us. Surely they could use a boost from an athletic banana, like the ad campaign from Chiquita that the 1980 Winter Olympics got. And a tropical fruit is even more synonymous with Brazil than it was with Lake Placid.

Time to bring back Carmen Miranda!

First of all, there's the violance,
Then there's the zika virus scare (probably mostly bullshit to sell copy)
Then there's the little matter of body parts washing up on the beaches
And, now, Russia is being banned.

The Olympics have fallen to the level of the Nobel Peace Prize in my estimation.

Hopefully, the Olympics haven't gotten THAT bad, Expat, and they will be back another day. After all, there's a fair amount of truth in some of these items.
