While eating breakfast this morning and reading my Boston Globe (yes, I still do read the physical newspaper), I happened to come across the article on Arnold Schwarzenegger detailing the criticism he’s receiving for attending a body-building contest in Columbus, Ohio. Unbeknownst to us, apparantly the bodybuilding circuit is comprised of dozens upon dozens of contestants who, shhhhhh, use steroids and other illegal supplements to blow themselves up into the ridiculous buffoons they are. Illegal supplements, you say? Bodybuilding? Can’t be!
Of course, I jest. That’s not even the point of my post. My point today is that there’s a line in the story that really cracked me up in a very sophomore-in-high-school kinda way. Here goes:
“In Columbus, Schwarzenegger fans as well as critics will be waiting to see whether he addresses bodybuilding’s worst-kept secret. The governor watched the women’s finals last night and planned today to award the top men’s prizes — $100,000 and a Hummer.”
I know, I know – it’s very Beavis and Butthead of me to post that, but I can’t help it. It’s too damn funny.
