SunUK: UNAPOLOGETICALLY, a grown woman strides towards a pedestrian and flings her arm out in an attempt to steal her bag.

  1. Reminiscent of the monkeys of Gibraltar.
    They sneak up behind tourists and steal shit out of their backpacks. The only difference is that the tour guides on Gibraltar give you a heads-up.

  2. i think they held the games there to boost the economy of the peasants. get what you can from the fools who come here.

  3. The o-limp-ics…. could have been in Chicago, there you could get raped, robbed, shot and killed.

    Those rich and famous Visitors to the o-limp-ics should consider themselves lucky to better the lives of thugs of Brazil. You know, spread the wealth progressively world-wide and still go home afterwards.
