Gedophamee

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 before 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 millenniums that morphed into, ” Olympics”. Just thought I’d share this new found knowledge with you.

You’re very welcome.
