The Chap | June 1, 2012
In a surprising, not to say flattering, turn of events, The Chap has been asked to stage our eccentric Olympiad within the very grounds of the proper Olympic stadium. Clearly realising that the real crowd puller to the Stratford Stadium would be, not boring old athletics, gymnastics and muscular people in Lycra, but wan, foppish gentlemen in tweed, trilbies and brogues stumbling their way through Hop Skip and G&T and Cucumber Sandwich Discus, the British Olympic Committee approached this humble publication to request some of our top athletes.
On Sunday 29th July, Friday 3rd and Saturday 4th August, ten of our finest-dressed, inappropriately trained and frankly weak at the knees Olympians will be representing The Chap in the Olympic Park. They will be demonstrating the above mentioned events, as well as the Pipeathlon, Moustache Wrestling and Butler Baiting. We thought Shouting at Foreigners was unnecessary, as the security guards will be doing plenty of that themselves, when they find some hapless Spanish student has tried to bring a bottle of fizzy pop into the Stadium.
We will need volunteers for this once-in-a-lifetime display of Chappishness to the world’s sports fans and media; a total of ten chaps or chapettes for each of the three dates listed above. Interested parties should contact firstname.lastname@example.org
