Chinese authorities announced that suspicious-looking females will be forced to take a gender test at next month’s Olympic Games.
TIMES ONLINE reports, “To ensure that girls will be girls, officials have set up a sex-determination laboratory where they say that tests will be conducted with the utmost delicacy by four experts from the Peking Union Medical College Hospital.”
What exactly does “girls will be girls” mean? They won’t tell you why they’re mad and force you to figure it out, or maybe they’ll take your credit card and go on a shopping spree to buy stuff they don’t need? Is that what the Chinese officials mean? Not exactly.
We were unaware of the scholarly bent of the ORLANDO SENTINEL, specifically their SPORTSSTUFF memorabilia blog. We do not know if writer Chris Olds attended one of the top Universities in the country, but we do see that he has a passion for his work and a research jones that beats Indy by miles.
Upon hearing that young Ashley Harkleroad has chosen to accept Hugh Hefner’s 40 pieces of gold for an appearance in PLAYBOY, Chris Olds spent a late night and early Memorial Day morning compiling a list of recent athletes, near-athletes, and people near athletes that have graced the pages of that fine upstanding publication.
He even bagged the magazines for us and put the receipt inside. Clearly, this was a labor of love. Chris Olds may be the greatest American ever. (He’s American, right? Maybe? Sure, why not?)
