Olympic Fashion

The BBC reports that Britain's female Olympic atheletes are getting their own set of Great Britian branded thongs.

Thongs are standard issue for the ladies, while the gents will be sporting rather more modest boxer shorts. Both come complete with patriotic Union Jack motif and are designed to go under one of several different outfits for use during the Games.
Apparently the granny knickers hadn't been a real popular underwear option.

I find this revolting and disgusting in the extreme, and I have an elegant solution: let's take the Olympics back to their original ideal, and have all contestants compete nude.

It ought to do wonders for the TV ratings. I know I'd probably skip the male events and the female shot-putting and weightlifting, but I see myself taping the hurdles and a few of the gymnastics events for posterity...

I'll leave others to consider how to apply this principle to the Winter Games.

Sorry Bo, was just trying to make a point about flags-as-underwear.

Perhaps the banana hammock was too much.
