Olympics in One Word

#1
Lord Coe has suggested that these Olympics could be summed up by one word: Joyous.
I'd veer towards something more like 'Bloodyhellhowdidwedothat' but that would be cheating so have settled for 'Amazing'.
Just wondered if anyone could think of a more appropriate label?

The young would perhaps say 'Mega', Mary Poppins might say 'Supercallifragilisticexpialidocious', but I think 'Excellent' or 'Superb' sums it up, providing you're only talking about the sport, not the corporate shysters, for whom there is no polite word :)

"Why?", since "what was the point?" would be more than one word.

If it's been sent from my HTC Sensation using Tapatalk then I'm probably pissed.

That word would be poontang

Womens beach volley ball, girlies on the track and so on...the whole things been a miasma of lycra clad minge.

........................................................Awesome is a word used by the Americans (who haven't a clue as to it's meaning) & Bart Simpson, & it is now being used by the British Untermensch!

Awesome......Bollocks!

'Fantabulous'

I have to agree with twothreeuptwothreedown with Fantabulous.

I really enjoy watching the games, makes me wish I'd taken athletics a bit more seriously when I was at school.

Amazing.

Purely because the entire country whined like **** about the Olympics. They happened exactly as expected. Yet now people are lining up around the block to swallow Seb Coe's rancid spunk. Including half the members of this site.

It's amazing how many people are incapable of thinking for themselves, and instead spout popular opinion as their own.

At least you have maintained a consistent stance about the whole event. Quite a lot of generalising in your post though.

My word to describe the Olympics is inspirational.

Ignored.

Although I did watch half a round of some Brit punching the bejasus out of a giant chinaman last night, it was accidental.

Meh. There's another good word.

Annoying.

My normal cycling loops have become filled with bifters on dusty bikes they have dug out of the shed after being "inspired" not to be fat bastards by the olympics.

By november it will be back in the shed again with the rowing machine and the bull worker.

Faustian ;-) Even entertaining, watchable, or epic. And all before the BBC reverts to its usual output and the telly goes off.

"Shysters" is good.
