THE 2010 WINTER OLYMPICS MONEY MAKING DOLLS
These Olympic dolls look familiar
Like the stickers on everything o’er in Japan
Were copycats hard at work?
When the competition ran?
Some toys made in China were poisoned with lead?
That’s what we were told and what the newspapers said
Our Whistler Winter Olympics being held in 2010
Have they ordered these souvenir dolls and if so where and when?
Donna Simpson says the doll should be called Raggedy Anne?
That would show the BC truth to each and every Olympics fan
Raeside has made a cartoon that really bespoke the real truth
Will the Committee take a loss because the doll maker’s rep is uncouth?

RAG DOLLS PROPOSED AS OLYMPIC MASCOTS
In view of the fact that for the last four years one in five children in B.C. lives below the poverty line (the highest rate in Canada), why not have two Olympic mascots called Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy?
That would certainly tell the world where we are and what’s important to us. I do not like the symbols that the Vancouver Olympic committee has come up with. I really hope they give this another shot.
