Yesterday, Tom Daley, that twinky British kid with a preternatural ability to fall into water gracefully, failed to get an Olympic medal. Which is surprising, because the press had led me to believe that he was the greatest diver there had ever been. (He’s not. He’s very, very good, but it turns out that loads of Chinese people are better than him.)
Anyway, most of England was quick to realize that you can’t win all the time, and set about consoling him, because, presumably, as a professional athlete, Tom was a little bummed out.
But so was a guy with a Twitter account.
