Jackie Chan records Olympic ditty

We Are Ready (to kick imperialist sporting arse)

Intelligent flash storage arrays

Action movie geezer Jackie Chan has apparently recorded an "officially-endorsed" song to celebrate the forthcoming Beijing Olympics, provocatively entitled We Are Ready.

Chan reportedly spent no less than three gruelling hours in front of the mic during a quick trip to the capital to bang out lyrics such as: "Waiting year after year/ We can see into the future/ Together with hard work and sweat/ We've created the five different colours."

Those inspirational (translated from the original Chinese, natch) lines are the work of one Peter Kam, who told AP a proper English-language version of the work was imminent.

Rumours that this will contain the verse "Comrade Communist Party official/ Feel free to use my car/ My feet are at your service/ And the stadium's not too far" are unconfirmed. ®
