The Paralympics are the Olympics's oft-neglected sibling. Whether it's because we're all Olympic'd out, or because we're horrible people, it's hard to work up much excitement, especially since they start an entire month later. Maybe this will help.
Remember that rather gauche Sports Illustrated South Africa fake-cover ad campaign? The one with Der Führer getting the ol' SI jinx dropped on his head? Well, the magazine now claims it didn't like the ads, either.
