Hot bodied man-dolphin Michael Phelps is in hot water (pun!) for the pic above, in which he appears to be pulling from a bong. He has already apologized for “regrettable” behavior and “bad judgment,” but I think differently.
What is regrettable is that nobody can have a private moment anymore without some asshat taking an unauthorized photo in a personal setting. And I don’t give a fuck if he’s a sports icon or a celebrity or whatever, this kind of bullshit happens all the time to private citizens and displayed on facebook. There is no discretion anymore, but I guess that’s life. People used to be cooler and have some sense of class.
Dude has a heart of gold and has spent most of his life training to be the best swimmer in the world. This hot bitch shouldn’t have to fight for his right to party.
What do you think? Like, let’s say your kid looks up to Phelps — is this where dreams are crushed or is it an opportunity to live in the real world, where people are human and you learn not only from their triumphs but also their indiscretions? Isn’t he entitled to have some fun, make out with hot chicks, get drunk and do bong hits, like any other twenty-something?
I’ve always believed that “nobody teaches you nothing,” a double negative meaning, of course, that everybody can teach you something…even if it’s what not to do. So Michael Phelps has taught me never to do bong hits in front of a camera. Lesson learned.
