"50 Strippers and a pound of blow"

It's doubtful Robin Williams will be invited to carry the torch for the 2016 Olympics in Rio.  The actor/comedian proved Brazilians aren't as laid back as the tourist brochures would lead us to believe. 

Appearing on the "Late Show with David Letterman" Williams speculated Rio won the right to host the 2016 Games because it sent "50 strippers and a pound of blow" to compete with Chicago's entourage that included President Barack Obama and Oprah Winfrey.  The comments have been played and replayed on Brazilian television.

Rio's Olympic Committee responded by saying its lawyers are reviewing whether they can take legal action against Williams.
