Did you know. The bird on the Uganda flag is a crane, specifically a grey-crowned crane. And you might think the colours were chosen because everyone in Uganda is a Partick Thistle supporter but the colours are, according to Wikipedia selected for these reasons:

  • Black: The People
  • Yellow: The sunshine of Africa
  • Red: African unity (the people are tied by blood).

Forty Quid at The Monkey Tonight Plus a Question about The Mongolian Olympic Team

You can win £40 cash tongiht at the Brass Monkey on Drummond Street. The cheat news is that tonight’s music round includes the legend of Chas & Dave.

Meanwhile, someone was asking if Mongolia had a team at the London 2012 Olympics or not. I guess they were thinking that maybe Mongolia is a poor country with nae athletes so maybe didn’t expect there to be a team.

I didn’t know the naswer on the spot so of course I looked it up and found that the answer is that they did and in fact they won five medals: 2 Judo, 2 boxing and 1 in Wrestling. All the medal winners were men apart from the wrestler who was a lady called Soronzonbold Battsetseg. Get your tongue round that.

Here she is:

In other not-necessarily-expected-at-theOlympics news, despite being a Mediterranean nation, Greece have put a team into the Winter Olympics an amazing eighteen times, although they have NEVER won a single medal, ever.
