Disturbing Things I Have Seen At the Gym: VOL 2

31 07 2009

Last week we went on a grand adventure, where middle aged woman with tramp stamps roamed the earth. This week, ladies and gentlemen, we dive head first into the world of the elderly male athlete!


Yes I know, it is a scary tale, but together we can survive it!

Any good gym provides its patrons with adequate changing facilities.  A few lockers, toilets, showers, and occasionally a sweet sauna room, but there are certain individuals who constantly abuse these amenities. A demographic who assume that the men’s locker room should have a “make yourself at home” policy.  You all know who I’m talking about! That’s right, the old men. The guys who are always butt ass naked. There is no logical or scientific explanation as to why these elderly males deem it necessary to always be stark nude. Any time you enter a men’s locker room at your local gym, you are guaranteed to see a pale, wrinkled apparition.


I have been going to the gym long enough that I have gotten use to these images. I am no longer bothered by what looks like an old naked big foot sitting on the bench next to me. It has now become part of the gym experience. But what I saw the other day, would make Hiroshima look like a botanical garden.

I had entered the locker room expecting to see the normal amount of old man ass. Of course when I first walk in, there are two gentlemen carrying on a conversation while naked. This didn’t really surprise me so I continued looking for an empty locker. I placed my things in the locker and began to change. Another older gentlemen exits the shower and takes off his towel as he reaches the locker containing his belongings. Again, this isn’t anything new, so I continued about my business, lacing up my sneakers. As I was finishing the change, I noticed the plump, elder had retrieved his socks from his Nike gym bag. I thought this a bit odd considering the man was just standing in the middle of the locker room without any cloths on. In my mind, the underoos are the first clothing item any man should reach for. It is only polite to cover your twig and berries as soon as humanly possibly. But for some reason old men love being naked. I’m telling you, its a science oddity!

As I get up to exit the men’s locker room, the elderly fellow goes over to put on his socks. Bent over full moon, I get a sneak preview at this man’s backdoor entrance, along with tickle whistle, and shriveled prunes. For that split second I felt like I was about to give this man his yearly prostate exam.

I still wake up from nightmares.


Word has it the BEES are going to North Carolina!

15 02 2009

Alright. So the bees are on the move and preparing to make North Carolina laugh. A lot. That’s right folks, on Wednesday, February 18th, 2009 the bees will be hopping in Molly’s Volkswagon Rabbit and driving approximately 2.15 hours to Carrboro, North Carolina for the 9th Annual North Carolina Comedy Arts Festival (NCCAF, formerly known as the Dirty South Improv Festival).


And now, with more PINK! 🙂

This is a huge honor for us and we couldn’t be more excited. 

So, if you are within, oh let’s say, a two hour radius of Carrboro/Chapel Hill, NC, you should make the trek down/up/sideways to see the BEES and over 500 other amaaaaazing improvisers from all across the country, AND CANADA!, perform. These are improvisers that most of us have looked up to for a long time, and to have the opportunity to share the stage with some of them is truly going to be the experience of a lifetime for us.

Here is when the BEES will be performing:

Thursday, February 19th @ 10pm w/ MADE of BEES: Made of Bees performs fast paced, aggressive improvisation. With just one suggestion, these improvisers thrust you into a world of bold characters that are guaranteed to give you a comedy buzz. Made of Bees: improv that stings.
