THE SNOOP

We're snooping your pages.  We're creeping your posts.  We're sharing your stuff.
We will not discriminate.  (Although we will often poke fun.)

One picture that may prove your belief in bodybuilding's golden era was a hoax.

What you thought was a real bodybuilding history isn't.  It was a contrived and profitable invention of one very clever man.  This pic kinda shows what we mean.

NSFW: The Tackiest Happy Birthday Jesus Ever (But Also Awesome)

In the course of a mere few minutes Egill Einarsson (a/k/a "Gillz," a/k/a "DJ Muscleboy") manages to offend Christians, women, lifters and your ears, and probably a few other groups here and there.  Yet the sheer ridiculousness of the result manages to hit a sublime note of multi-target satire.

The only thing worse than misogyny, rape and violence is creatine.

Creatine will make you insane enough to murder in cold blood.  At least according to the crack reporting of the online tabloid, The Mirror.  The shitfest of an online "news" report claimed that a friend of killer Elliot Roger "noticed a sinister change in him after he started to take creatine."

 This is journalism?  (Photo from The Mirror.  Link withheld under ethical protest.)

This offensive-to-no-end report is not just the best scapegoat yet to avoid facing the reality of the twisted gender ideals society upholds, which play a huge factor in the behaviors of the otherwise deranged.  (Tell a crazy women are to blame, and guess what that crazy's gonna do, right?)  This is also the most hilarious takedown of sports supplements yet.  "It wasn't his mental state that drove him to atrocity.  It was the amino acids."  

Creatine drove a man to commit murder.  

Barf.

Every once in a while the gods of Comedy In Sports Supplements (which are among the measliest of gods up there) grant us all with a gem that needs no write up, no take down and no sideways glance.  The idea that creation is the root of a crime this horrific – the fact that anyone could even suggest this – is not only nauseatingly derisive and cruel to the survivors of the victims, disrespectful to athletes and the industry they work with, it is also just plain hilariously idiotic.  

(Wait – did we just defend the supplement industry?  We better check our stevia levels; it could be making us crazy!)

We Snooped this today and were shocked.  But you're probably already wondering: "Hey, Snoops! Why haven't you provided us a link to the news story?"  Well this was debated back and forth; to provide a link backs up what we are saying, but it also provides traffic to The Mirror.  We kinda don't think they deserve that help.  Their sponsors and their staff should be ashamed, not rewarded with extra clicks.  So if you want to find it, just Google "California Shooting: British serial killer Elliot Rodger was hooks on bodybuilding supplement pills." If you help the Mirror with traffic, that's on you.  Maybe we're acting extra prudent, but can you blame us.  We just started using vitamin C pills.  KOO KOO BANANAS!

A dude's gotta squat heavy to pull this prank.

We all see those backhanded bitchslaps about women who squat having nice asses.  Idiot gym goons don't quite get how that is not a complement (just your intention behind a statement is not what makes something flattering, guys) to say that the value of a woman's awesome strength is found in how good she looks to a man as a result.  (Barf.) 

But then we Snooped this video off our buddy Dave from Self Made Strength posted this awesomely hilarious prank video that turns the table of squat-based sexism.  

We like a good prank.  We like more discouraging guys from being dickheads.  But we LOVE when both get done in one hilarious moment of brilliance.  

Cheap fish protein vs. "oily anal leakage"

Normally at The Snoop we don't love the paranoia mongering of the typical media food industry reports.  However, a recent report by The Atlantic about mislabeled tuna involves . . . well, it involves "oily anal leakage," so naturally we grabbed right on to it.

 Surprise!  It's not tuna at all!

Surprise!  It's not tuna at all!

Politics aside (if you can even put aside the creepy implications of mislabeled food), this is one of those protein stories that athletes and lifters and bodybuilders need jammed down their skulls, not to mention the fad "healthy eaters" who just think anything other than a hot dog is "healthy protein."  It's one thing for a label to be a little off, but the findings here were on the shocking order of a tuna fish spit-take.  

The money shot comes from what was being called tuna and labeled and sold as such.  Escolar will give you the runs – hardly a health boon – and is the white fish which tons of fish in markets and restaurants are actually serving up.   

I couldn't point out escolar if it came up and bit me.  However, I have a feeling we have all "felt" escolar leaving us from time to time.
