An excellent little insult from Stephen Fry@Qi, they were discussing the change of rules in table tennis, reducing the number of points to win a game from 21 to 11 and increasing the size of the ball by 2 mm, making it slower. All in order to make the game more attractive for TV.

Because "people are driveling maniacs who have to get up every five minutes to vomit some pizza" - or something like that.

pibbur who hasn't had pizza for ages (weeks), who detests similare changes to the volleyball rules., and who wonders if we need a favourite insults thread. Or something like that.

PS. Here's a quite interesting exchange from one of the 2012 olympic matches (comments in Norwegian, but the video speaks for itself). DS.

EDIT: Found the exact quote (it's on a website of course): "And the games are shorter because human beings these days are just gibbering maniacs that have to go and vomit up a pizza every five minutes so they can't have anything longer than that" . . . .
