Leave it to the French....

Lance Armstrong's record setting seventh Tour de France victory, along with his entire Tour de France legacy, may be tarnished by what could turn out to be one of the greatest sports scandals of all time Armstrong is being
quizzed by French police after three banned substances were found in his South France hotel room while on vacation after winning the 2005 Tour de France.

The three substances found were toothpaste, deodorant, and soap which have been banned by French authorities for over 75 years. Armstrong's girlfriend and American rocker Sheryl Crow is quoted as saying "we use them
every day in America, so we naturally thought they'd be ok throughout Europe."

Along with these three banned substances, French authorities also physically searched Armstrong himself and found several other interesting items that they have never seen before,including a backbone and testicles.

Oh man... That reminds me... In all the wars the France has ever been involved with, they've only ever won one of them. The French Revolution... and then only by default!

sincity: I followed Lance's progress in the tour daily & I applaud his victory. It is always a terrible thing when someone chooses to deface anothers accomplishments.
