Vast Majority of FBLA Readers Feel Sorry for Super Talented, Ridiculously Rich Michael Phelps

Poor Michael Phelps – let the kid smoke weed in peace, say our readers.

Our poll yesterday asked if anyone really cares about Phelps being photographed smoking a bong. Very few do.

And to add to the fun of this story – we got this from a reader:

FYI, in India (where I used to live and smoke), the word for marijuana that had been moistened, then mashed into a paste, ready to be eaten, was “bhang” (pronounced “bong”). I come back to the States and hear people calling a chillum (the pipe) a “bong,” and it confused me. It’s like an Indian coming here and referring to a marijuana bush as a “roach clip.” Bizarre.

Ooh, High Times essay – here we come!

Also, 16.09% of those polled have some rip roaring stoner grannies in the family.

They make the *best* cookies.
