Yes, the Sochi Olympics
When I was looking up the names of the adorable (freaky-evil if you ask me) mascots for the Sochi Olympics, I learned on Wikipedia that these furry little critters don't have names AND they were surrounded in a controversy of suspicious judging.
Wait a minute, Ice Charades, are you suggesting that there was something funny in the judging? In the Olympics?
Why, yes, yes I am. It's funny - hmmm.
You can read the wikipedia entry for the Sochi Olympic Mascots here. Then scroll down to the Controversy section to read this:
Despite the success of the mascot selection process, some accusations have been brought against the mascots. The possibility of telephone vote rigging was brought up when the mascot that Prime Minister Vladimir Putin had said was his favorite, the snow leopard, polled the most votes in the voting process after a sharp climb in the number of votes.
... a sharp climb in the number of votes.
Well, let's just be glad that they haven't opened up the figure skating competition in Sochi to telephone voting.
