Thanks to the Paralympics, disabled people are now being viewed as actual people, according to the worldwide media.
In hopes to change attitudes towards those with disabilities, the IOC, the International Olympic Committee, have decided to hold the Paralympics in London.
The head of the IOC, Count Jacques Rogge, said at a press conference that the Paralympics were being held to show that the disabled can do things that people could.
“It came to our attention that people all over the world think that the disabled are weak, helpless, and do not have the same drive and ambition as the rest of us.”
Janet from the USA, who is in London for the games, said, “It’s just great, you know? Really lovely to see the disabled getting some fresh air.”
More idiotic comments came from Mike, one of the British Paralympic volunteers; “I was amazed to see some of the disabled weren’t even in a wheelchair.”
The Paralympics has been highly praised not for the high level of world class sport and commitment from the athletes or for the sportsmanship and great achievements of these hardworking, dedicated people; but for helping change the attitudes of the stupid, everywhere.
