The Summer Games.

Recommended Posts

The Summer Games are in full swing, here is a tidbit of Greek history that might have escaped you. 2500 years ago a beautiful slave “call girl” from Sardinia named Gedophamee, (pronounced: Get-offa’-me) was attending the first athletic festival in Greece. This festival had no name at the time.

In those days the athletes performed naked and to prevent unwanted arousal while competing, the men imbibed freely on a drink containing large doses of saltpeter.

At the opening ceremonial parade of this first great event, Gedophamee observed the first wave of naked male athletes marching toward her and she exclaimed:

“Oh! Limp Pricks !”

Over the next two and a half millennia that expression morphed into “Olympics.”

And now you know...

Don’t bother to thank me, I just enjoy discussing history.
