Are escorts in keeping with the Olympic Spirit?

    One Olympian from New Zealand sure hopes so.

    All in the spirit of amateur athletics, I'm sure.

    But how bad could it be? After all, he got his mother's permission.

    The word "amateur" no longer exists in the Olympic charter.
    So these "pros" are A-OK.

    Bah!

    All these artificially enhanced, overly dolled up pros these days ... what's wrong with amateur action?

    Perhaps they can perform a gymnastics demonstration on their dates. Ride the pommelhorse, so to speak.

    I thought at first it meant escorts *for* Olympic athletes.

    Unnecessary, apparently. The Olympics is supposedly one of the world's great hook-up fests. All these superbly-conditioned, physical young people in a confined space, nature just takes over.

    Yep. That's why condoms are the most popular of all the goodies the athletes receive - and why they're always running out of them.

    Nadia, that was perfect - you get a 10 for that full-twisting dismount!

    The escort service will also serve as unofficial tryouts for the Kiwi pole vault team.
