I happened upon this event last year and giggled for about 4 days. Last year I had the fortune of walking by just as the women's figure competition was finishing up, and there was this voice of God over a microphone that would say "LEFT DELTOID" and then everyone would turn and flex their oily glistening shoulders in unison and smile their most constipated smile while standing atop 4 inch tall plastic hooker shoes.

This year, however, we stumbled upon the competition just as they were beginning the Men's 40+ competition. Then the 50+. And then the 60+. Don't let your imagination run wild, I took some photos for you. This is not just any bodybuilding competition. These are men eligible for MediCare and Social Security who are standing in front of hundreds of people all greased up and wearing nothing but tiny shiny speedos.
