Michael Phelps has decided to get out ahead of what is sure to be a poopstorm over News of the World‘s publication of a picture of him sucking on a bong at a college party last November. The Olympic hero and stunningly wooden pitchman has admitted the guy in the picture is indeed him and apologized for letting everyone down. Said Phelps in a statement:
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.
Translation: I like the chronic too much to ever give it up, so in future I will endeavor to smoke it out of range of idiot college girls with cameras. At least until the Democrats make it legal. Then…it’s all good.Tags: michael phelps
