What a scoop for the News Of The World, a British tabloid of dubious journalistic value. Some schmuck sold them a photo of Olympic swimming champion Michael Phelps pulling a bong hit. Stop the presses. Cue the shock and disgust trolls.
Truthfully, it makes me like him a tad bit more. Sure, it's illegal. But in a time when we have US presidents who start illegal wars, vice presidents and attorneys general who think torture is OK, and Wall Street moguls who drive their firms into the ditch and then ask for taxpayer bailouts to pay out bonuses to their inept partners... this is nothing. NOTHING.
Yet more proof that we have our priorities really f***ed up in this world when outrage gets directed at petty stuff like this, while things that really matter are simply accepted.
