disorientated tourists

Welcome to 'forced analogy of the week', courtesy of today's Guardian:

"It was supposed to be a proud parade, the flame representing the Olympic ideal carried aloft through the Parisian streets on the latest leg of its global tour ahead of the Beijing games.

Instead, the Olympic torch resembled a disoriented Chinese tourist, hopping on and off the bus in several unscheduled stops during its tortuous and at times farcical journey around the French capital."
Erm.

I'd love it if the torch really did resemble a disorientated chinese tourist. Perhaps afterwards it could resemble a Tibetan monk, hunched beneath the truncheon blows of a Chinese copper.

Sorry, don't know where that came from.

Am I developing Alzheimers, or did I just hit the 'publish' button twice?
