Please Giggle at This Noble Cause, and Then Donate

Note: If you’re not entertained by wordplay and/or lowbrow boob humor, you may as well stop reading, because there’s really nothing for you here.

All day today, Dr. (Mrs.) Some Guy will be participating in Girls Gone Rx, a CrossFit competition that doubles as a fundraiser for Barbells for Boobs, which is (according to their website) “a non-profit organization that provides funding to pay for breast cancer detection services as a last resort for thousands of people who don’t qualify for assistance elsewhere.”

While we applaud the participants’ phenomenal athleticism and their willingness to work their asses off (not usually literally) for a good cause, what really hooked us here was the lengths to which some of competitors were willing to go, and the linguistic creativity they were willing to apply, to come up with boobie-themed team names that are either really good or really bad, sometimes simultaneously.

The competing teams include:
  • Breast Friends
  • Bar Belles
  • Twin Peaks Rescue
  • Bonkers for Honkers (our personal favorite)
  • Fembots
  • Breast Assured
  • Titty Titty Bang Bang
  • Bad LAsses
  • Rack Pack
  • Team Motorboat
  • Big or Small...Save ’em All
  • Stop Drop and Squat
  • Saving Second Base
  • Push-Up Broads (extra points awarded here for a triple meaning, even if the competitors don’t actually have to do push-ups today)
  • Breast buddies
  • Sweater Puppies
  • Pirates for Healthy Coconuts (also our personal favorite. Why “Pirates”? Who cares?)
  • Sweater Kittens
  • Breast Friends Forever
  • Brazinga!
  • In Titties We Trust
  • Lumbear racks
  • Girls Gone WOD (WOD is a CrossFit term that stands for “Workout Of the Day”)
  • Pink Ninjas
  • Tits on Tits on Tits
  • Itty Bitty Titty Committee
  • Peeka Boobies
  • Honkin Tatas
  • Tittsburgh Feelers (we’ve done what research we can, but have been unable to determine whether this team really did come all the way from Tittsburgh to compete)
  • Ta-tas and Tiaras
  • Bad Ass Boobed Bitches
  • Treasured Chests
  • Booby Trap
  • Go BOOB or go HOME
  • Double-D Double Unders
  • A Cups
  • Breast of Intentions
  • Do These Squats Make Our Asses Look Big
  • Rack Attack
  • Boobie Traps
  • Nice Rack
  • Rack City
  • Mis-Tits
  • Booby Buccaneers
  • We Care About Your Pair
  • Hee HawHotties
  • BoobBeasts

Lest you think this competition amounts to a bunch of lunkheaded gym guys snickering at boob jokes like a bunch of fourteen-year-olds, the Girls Gone Rx competition appears to be for women only. The single lunkheaded guy we know snickering at it is the one blogging about it at the moment. So take that, people who object to stuff!

If you'd like to donate—which would be great—please visit this page for Saving Second Base, towards which I am terrifically biased but only because it’s possibly the greatest CrossFit team ever assembled, and not because it includes my wife.
