naked olympics

I guess that headline will attract some unwitting googlers.

Anyway, I’d heard about this story, where Olympic stars posed for Playboy magazine. They did a quick feature on it on the radio a couple of days ago, and said that the Greek ancients would probably really approve, as the original Olympics were quite a lech-fest where all they would wear was olive oil, and if you wore clothes you were seen as being something of a barbarian. And apparently gyms were total pick-up joints too. Reality set in while I was listening to the article though – it was interrupted because they went to live coverage of a campaign visit by George W Bush. Typical – those Republicans manage to get in the way of good clean fun whenever they can.
