First of all, I hate to quote Sally Jenkins because I think she's a cunt writer, but I thought this article was fairly entertaining:

QUOTE
So Michael Phelps dove headfirst into the bong water. Is anyone really surprised, after all those laps? There has always been something submerged and escapist about the world's greatest swimmer. When presented with a chamber containing a hazy translucent liquid, he did what's become second nature to him. He buried his face in it.

I'm just sorry I wasn't at that University of South Carolina house party to witness Squid Boy's binge firsthand -- not that I would ever make such a staggering misstep myself.

According to the British tabloid News of the World, which ran a photo of Phelps hunched over a glass tube and torching it up quite proficiently with a lighter, he "was out of control from the moment he got there." Can you imagine how much dew he inhaled, with his world-class lung capacity? I don't know exactly what kind of killer nuggets were stuffed into the bowl of that German-made red Roor bong -- why should I know such a thing, or even how to use a lighter -- but they weren't cloves.



Nice piece, Mikey.

I'm sure the kiddies will be proud.

No big deal, some say weed is good for your lungs. If he's not a regular smoker it shouldn't have a big effect on his swimming career.
Also, good job.
PabloHoneyOle
I'd like to see him become the face of NORML. Lead the way to legalization.

I'm fucking proud of him, I knew he wasn't just some patriotic aqua tool. I'm sure he's not a habitual user, just a kid having fun at a party. Shame his fame ruins his fun. If he's ever in FL, I'll smoke a blunt with him.

If I were him though, I'd fucking beat the ass of whoever took that photo and make sure there are no cameras around next time I pack a fat bowl.

Not for Phelps. Looks like the sherriff in SC is looking into the pictures.

I smoke everyday, I have for about 8 years. You'll never find a pic of me rocking a bong on the internet... although I'm not as famous as Phelps (except on this website).

In highschool, we created a gravity bong using a 5 gallon water bottle and a friend's pool.

Michael Phelps should look into this.

Basic principle for you non-smokers and morons:

This guy is a dumbass. Plain and simple. Don't let people take pictures of you... who does that anyway? Bells should have been ringing in his head at that time.

Not now that there's photographic proof of him rocking the bong.

Can't really prove its pot in there though can they?

And News of the World? Trust a shitty newspaper like them to try and take this out of proportion.

Ah well, didn't read the whole of the news post.

My point was that it's a non-issue what the tests say.

i think it shows that he isn't a habitual user...

It looks like 8 other people who are not named Michael Phelps have been arrested surrounding the emergence of this photo.

Why did they confiscate it? Surely Bongs aren't illegal. If there was nothing in it they can't charge him really...

That is a REALLY nice bong he has there....
Marneyo Juano
Not really, Just a 2(?) chamber one. You should see the ones I make at home from glass bottles. Had one made out of a 2L vodka bottle...Gotta make another one and get a pic of it.
PabloHoneyOle
In college, we converted a 5 gallon jug into a large chamber bong for multiple people.

The tubes coming out of it looked liked arms, so we named it "Huggy Huggerton". Good times.

So he was proven innocent. Apparently there was no evidence?? WTF! XD.png

That's probably what it meant. Being that the photo was allegedly taken around September, there's no way to test him for it.

if you've smoked an illegal substance through it, it becomes illegal paraphernalia and you CAN get in trouble for it...

I don't know i think it's kinda stupid and blown way out of proportion, whatever he wants to do in his personal life that's not hurting anyone else i say leave him the fuck alone.

Seriously don't think he's the stereotypical stoner that sits around and smokes weed all day.

I'm starting to get really sick of how the paparazzi works nowadays where they do everything but walk inside someones house and take picture's of them(and you know they would if they could get away with it) i mean there whole thing with Britney almost made start feeling sorry for her (even tho i think she is a talentless skank) cause it was obvious she was having a lot of mental issues and the Paps were just feeding off it even tho i'm sure there were times where she or some of her entourage probably encouraged them to show up someplace she was gonna be at.

Anyways i'm just using her as an example.

It's also said that whoever took this picture of Micheal Phelps was probably doing it for money.

Also it's nice to see an athelete who is just a normal guy and not some macho steroid freak.

Most stoners don't have 14 gold medals and 7 world records. I'm sure Michael Phelps has so much going on he can't just sit around and smoke weed.

Bad example.
1. If we didn't have the paparrazi, there would be no pictures of Britney's beaver.
2. This wasn't even the paparrazi, it was some kid at a party with Michael Phelps hitting a bong who happened to have a camera phone on him to capture this magical moment.

I'm sure the kid didn't take the picture to initially make money. Remember, this is South Carolina. Most people in SC are so inbred they don't even know what the fuck a paparrazi is.

This picture has been around for months, it just recently surfaced when it was brought to the attention of a British tabloid. The kid probably didn't make very much money and if you're following the story, he was probably one of the eight kids who were arrested in connection with the photo surfacing.

There were no formal charges issued, however they were still put into the system.
