Olympics History


With the Summer Games coming up shortly, here is a piece of Greek history.
:research:
2500 years ago a slave call girl from Sardinia named Gedophamee :dunno2: (pronounced Get-offa'-me) was attending the first athletic festival in Greece. This festival had no name. :sad:

In those days the athletes performed naked. :yikes:

To prevent unwanted arousal while competing, the men imbibed freely on a drink containing saltpeter, :beer2: before and throughout the variety of events.

At the opening ceremonial parade of this first great event, Gedophamee :dunno2: observed the first wave of naked athletic males marching toward her and she exclaimed: "Oh! Limp pricks!".

Over the next two and a half millennia that expression morphed into "Olympics”. :clap:

Just thought I’d share this new-found knowledge with you. :research:
:dance: You are welcome. :dance:

....and do enjoy the summer Olympics. :champion:
