Other criticism of the 2008 Beijing Olympics pales in comparison to the newest shocker: Athletes will not compete in the nude, even though the Greeks originally competed with nary a loincloth. Viewers and gods alike will be forced to imagine the glistening, olive-oiled bodies under mounds of confining cloth. Oh China! What have you done to our beloved games? If we wanted to watch a bunch of never-nudes, we’d watch some cheap Roman rip-off. Boycott?
