Bigger, Stronger, Faster -- and Freakier

June 12, 2008


This deleted scene from the documentary Bigger, Stronger, Faster is a testament to the truly warped minds that sit inside the roided out skulls of body builders.


At a certain point, one must ask one’s self, Do I really need my biceps to be over 20 inches? How much better a person will I be if I can bench another hundred pounds? Am I strangling my dog out of tough love or roid rage? Is there a difference?

These are questions that do not cross the chemically saturated brain of a competitive body builder.

I think my favorite line is when one of the guys says, “I’ve always wanted to look like a freak, ever since I was a kid.” Mission accomplished, sir.
