As corporate Canada prepares to host the 2010 Olympics in Whistler, BC, a group of counter-culturists is preparing to host its own "Nude" Olympic games in the summer of 2008.
"The biggest love-in since Woodstock" is their slogan.
The location for these games is the previously unknown, private NUDIST resort -"Shangri-la"- owned by ex-hippie, draft-dodger, turned corporate-mogul - Dickie Pounder.
A conscientious objector from the Vietnam war era; former us-citizen-turned-naturalized-Canadian Olympic athlete and nandrolone fan, Dickie was banned from amateur sports in the early 90s following the Ben Johnson fiasco. He went on to create his successful "Image Consulting" business, bought a hundred acres of virgin land in the upper northern coastal area of BC and made billions running a private nude resort for reclusive fellow-billionaires.
Regulars at the resort have included Brangelina, Mick Jagger ("He has the scrawniest butt ever" giggled room attendant and aspiring actress, Madula O'blongata), Brittany Spears, George Clooney ("He just loves ordering room service in the nude", cooed Madula); Matt Damon, J Lo and Russell Crowe.
A toker himself, Dickie blew Olympic-rings-shaped smoke circles during his interview with ABC. "Average folks can't afford the Olympics, so I figured, why not, let's have the nude Olympics. All events are mixed - guys and chicks running, jumping, rolling and wrestling together. Wow!! No drug hassles man, smoke, toke, whatever! It'll be a gas."
Prizes include unique - cannabis-leaf shaped medallions fashioned out of Swarovski crystal, laced with platinum, gold and silver filigree and designed by eminent Native carver Billy-Willy Bud-Smoke.
The event begins in early August with a nude Parade of Nations followed by 3 weeks of wild and hedonistic revelry.
"Get your passports and papers ready. There are no qualifying restrictions on athletes. Let's make love not war", said Dickie.
