Bodybuilders Flee, Leave Trail of Bronzer

If we have any Belgian readers, go ahead and thank us. We have the explanation for the herd of huge men in man-panties running at a full- speed waddle through your streets this weekend. ↵

↵Belgian weightlifters at the Belgian National Bodybuilding Competition this weekend saw a doping tester enter the room, paused in the application of their bronzer, and then stampeded out of the room as fast as their huge legs would take them. By "weightlifters," I mean all of them in competition that weekend, twenty in all who made up the entire field for the event. The event had to be canceled, leaving the Belgians without a national champion bodybuilder, and leaving the streets of Brussels stained with the bronzer-y footprints of rapidly fleeing weightlifters in their show-skivvies. ↵

↵To be fair, if ↵you've seen their cows, this should surprise no one. They did at least take the honest approach and just declared a full-on scramble for the exits. If Rafael Palmeiro had done the same thing in front of Congress when asked if he'd ever taken steroids, it would have been both substantially funnier and better than finger-wagging lying under oath. (Also, he would have earned bonus points for doing a Chapelle-style tip of the water pitcher on the way out just to double the chaos points awarded.) ↵
