Has anyone heard the obvious joke being used for the story about the switchero done with the two girls in the opening ceremony of the Olympics? I haven't yet, but its the first thing that popped into my head when I heard about it first. I thought it too obvious to mention then but I'm really surprised I didn't hear it used even once.
Something along the lines of: "The real singer was Yang Peiyi, the other girl was only Mi-Ming".
