An Open Letter to Michael Phelps

You know, your lawyers could have given any number of professional athletes a call when you signed all those endorsement deals. They have "handlers" that keep them out of situations like this.

I'm just guessin'...but having pictures like this get out ain't the way to keep up on your house payments.


I engaged in behavior which was regrettable and demonstrated bad judgment. I'm 23 years old and despite the successes I've had in the pool, I acted in a youthful and inappropriate way, not in a manner people have come to expect from me. For this, I am sorry. I promise my fans and the public it will not happen again.


"Mom?? I wanna come home! You rented out my room?!? Mom, to whom?!"

Non-stories like this piss me off.

OMG Phelps smoked weed! Take his medals!

And who is the fucking hypocrite at the weed-smoking-party who took the picture and gave it to the media?

Dude is living the dream. I'm sure this wasn't his first time, so clearly weed hasn't affected his ability to compete.

In short - who cares, it's none of our business, Americans need to stop the hypocritical "my virgin eyes cannot believe what they are seeing OMG" fake righteous outrage.

Completely agree, but that's America for you. Fuckin' Kellogg's isn't going to understand. Dude's gotta know. Big ol' party that with that many strangers? I'm sure he has his own weed-smokin' circle...Marion Barry went down just as hard. Harder.
