Topical post! Olympics opening ceremony this evening, and considering the hilarious mistakes that have made in the build up to the Olympics, it promises to be entertaining viewing.

BBC comedy mockumentary ‘Twenty Twelve’, following the fictional Olympics Deliverance Commission, has been one of the main highlights of the Olympics to date. It’s also alarming how some of the errors made by the fictional team have been followed by remarkably similar events occurring in real life.

The twitter feed of fictitious Siobhan Sharpe, of PR agency ‘Perfect Curve’ @perfect_siohan is brilliant, reacting to real-life Olympic slip-ups almost as well as the scripted ones. On the  news that the wrong Korean flag had been used for the women’s football, she tweeted, “So there are two Koreas, like who knew? #Holyshet”

You couldn’t make this up.

Well, you probably could, but there’d be more Brazillos in it.
