#NBCFail isn't the only Olympic hashtag flying around Twitter. This morning, tweeters have been suggesting their own #RejectedOlympicEvents.

Everything from the "Don't Let The Balloon Touch The Floor" to the useful and exciting "who can run the fastest to the fridge and back before the tv show comes back on."

Of course the Olympics, have a long history of weird events, (live pigeon shooting? solo synchronized swimming?) that have now been cancelled.

Or maybe the IOC would consider adding some of these weird sports to the next Olympics. We'd pay good money to watch horse vaulting.
