Scotland now accounts for 13.14% of the medals overall – showing that there is no straw Nationalists will not grasp at in order to claim moral superiority
By Moan McVulpine on 7 Aug 2012 – Moanie’s back – back again
WE ALWAYS knew he wouldn’t greet if he won a final.
Andy Murraymint’s win over Roger Fedherair showed the Swiss care more about chocolate than medals.
Scolymopians now account for the success of the Olympics movement, games and sporting prowess throughoot the globe – once again punching above oor weight in the hubris stakes.
Reports have said oor contribution is so impressive that a Scolymopian team would be sixth on the table and universally loved throughoot the right thinking wurld.
Old Moanie also got caught up in the excitement, but that’s no a story for a newspaper column.
Let’s just say I had more than a tear in my eye, or sob in my throat, when Jessica Tennis crossed the finish line.
The weight of another body on top – bordered on hysteria at times – and it put extra pressure on old Moanie, that’s for sure.

Let’s just say I could have devoted a whining moan to naming all the Saints of the Eucharist.
It’s sad that some Daily Ranger columnists have chosen to exploit the games for their own ends.
The Unholy Alliance has shamelessly hectored oor Firstminster for the waste of time and money at Wee Scotlander Hoose at Pall Mall – kept empty for reasons of fiscal security.
As comedian Johnnieboy McSwinney wrote in his blog: “Will people get into the ballot box thinking, ‘I’ve waited mare than two year fur whit?, but I was still more moved by Scots Olympians being referred to as Scolymopians?”
