Lift The Ban On Athlete Doping

What do we spectators cheer and admire in competitive sports? Is it purely achievement? How about the motto “faster, higher, stronger,” coined by a French Dominican priest, Henri Didon, and borrowed by the aristocratic French founder of the modern Olympic Games, Pierre de Coubertin, who introduced it to the public during the 1924 games? This three-word motif—citius, altius, forties—begs the question: by what means?

    Athletes using chemical enhancements are like starlets with fake boobs. Acceptability is in the eye of the beholder.

      Most of those female Olympians could use some fake boobs. And some estrogen shots.

  • Due to popular demand, coming soon to an Olympics near you:
    The Olympic Bong Championship!

    Competitors are judged on the following:
    – the weight of the chunk of bud you can stuff into an Official Olympic-sized bong
    – the number of seconds you can hold your breath after inhaling the fully-ignited fully-consumed bud after a single haul

    Lift the ban on doping? Why bother, a doped human won’t be able to compete with what’s coming next – genetically modified humans and human-animal chimeras.
