Joke Tuesday.

I didn't know that.

Subject: How the Olympics Got Its Name.

A slave call girl from Sardinia, named Gedophamee, was attending a great but as yet unnamed athletic festival 2500 years ago in Greece.

In those days, believe it or not, the athletes performed naked.

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

At the opening ceremonial parade, Gedophamee observed the first wave of naked magnificent males marching toward her, and she exclaimed: "OH!! Limp Pricks!"

Over the next two and a half millennia, that morphed into "Olympics".

And here's me thinking that the first games were held in the shadow of Mount Olympus. Well, you learn something new every day.

Where do you get all this info? Out of a Christmas cracker?
