Day Brightener – I Didn’t Know That!

arena2500 years ago a slave call girl from Sardinia named Gedophamee (pronounced Get-offa’me) was attending a great athletic festival in Greece. This festival had no name. In those days, the athletes performed naked (believe it or not).

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

At the opening ceremonial parade, Gedophamee 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”.

Just thought I’d share this new found knowledge with you.

You’re very welcome
