An Unexpected Consequence of the Cutbacks.

While I was eating my dinner tonight I watched a bit of the European Indoor Athletics Championships from Prague. I’ve never been big on athletics, but what kept me watching (apart from the fact that I hadn’t finished my dinner) were the prizes given to the top three in each event. Those who came second and third got a bunch of flowers each, and the winner got a bunch of flowers and a cuddly toy penguin.

Is this the shape of things to come? I hope it isn’t, because now I’ve got mild stomach cramps and I swear there’s a connection.
