Olympic officials state Rio water has surprising health benefits

With the 2016 Olympic Games just days away, the waterways of the host city are still contaminated with raw human sewage and teeming with dangerous viruses and bacteria.

With over 1,400 athletes scheduled to participate in water competitions, there is a huge risk of both athletes and tourists getting violently ill.

But the International Olympic Committee is trying to put a positive spin on a negative story. 
The IOC has announced that the Rio de Janerio water supply can have some surprising health benefits.

“We realize that there are a number of studies claiming that the water in Rio is dangerous.” said IOC spokesperson Christopher Michaels. “But we also realize that there are going to be a number of visitors to this area that are in need of an affordable weight loss program. And the water in Rio can provide a solution for those visitors.”

“If you are looking to trim a few pounds from your waistline, we are encouraging you to dunk your head under water, and enjoy the health benefits that Rio can provide.” Michaels continued.

“Especially the American tourists. I think we can all agree that they can especially reap the rewards of this difficult situation. “

WWE suspends wrestler for passing steroid test

World Wrestling Entertainment made some news on Monday, when it was announced that they had suspended one of their top contenders- Todd “Sasquatch” Sorensen, for what they deemed to be a violation of their “wellness policy”.

But the Daly Dose has learned that the violation consisted of Sasquatch actually passing a drug test, and proving that he is in fact, steroid free.

“Look, we have certain expectations for our wrestlers.” said WWE Chairman Vince McMahon. “We expect them to take care of their bodies, and Sasquatch failed to live up to those expectations. As a result, we are forced to suspend him for 60 days after which, he can test again and hopefully get it right.”

Sasquatch was baffled by the ruling.

“Look, I may not be a very smart man. I am just a hard working guy, that goes to work every day, and tries to carve out my own version of the American dream.” Sasquatch responded on Monday. “I had thought that I was doing what was right by avoiding anabolic steroids of any kind. But I can see now that I made a huge mistake.”

Sasquatch continued “I will make this right. I am working right now to try to attain as many anabolic steroids as I can get my hands on. Does anyone have Alex Rodriguez’s phone number? Jose Canseco? The Russian track team?”
