Welcome to 1984. Welcome to the 2008 Beijing Olympics

That’s right, your ticket to the 2008 Beijing Olympics now includes a free bonus gift!  A mandatory tour of George Orwell’s 1984!

Some of the many attractions of this brand new amusement park include:

  • “Tickets for the opening and closing ceremonies are embedded with a microchip containing the bearer’s photograph, passport details, addresses, e-mail and telephone numbers.”
  • “Thousands of closed-circuit TV cameras”
  • The very real possibility of identity theft
  • A cool game you can play with friends called, “Guess which ticket is whose?” with hilarious penalties like “Denied Admission” or “Standing in a huge long line”
  • If you’d prefer something with a bit more thrill, you can even play “Spot the undercover security officials”

Don’t lose or throw away your tickets either.  That’s a heckuva lot of information on them for random strangers to have.

Man, I can’t wait to go to the Olympics!  Oh, wait, I’m not going.  :(
