Never share your pot with someone who has the lung capacity of a dolphin. - Conan O'Brien commenting on the photo of Michael Phelps taking a bong hit



Subject: Michael Phelps cartoon


Lisa, loved your toon yesterday. Phelps had a 2004 DUI after the Olympics in Greece and that didn't hurt his future endorsements. He takes a hit off a bong and suddenly people are going nuts. Hypocrisy!


The leader of the GOP, Rush, is/was an admitted OxyContin addict and he's still gainfully employed. Rush needs a bong hit to mellow out his bellow. lol


The War on Drugs has been a resounding success!




Don't bogart that bong, Michael Phelps. Someone is looking for you: SC sheriff investigating Phelps' pot pipe pic AP


Thank you, Mary. Your email reminded me of a song Mick Jagger and Keith Richards released in 1966 about tranquilizer abuse by the "straight" culture. (lyrics below).

It's not much different today except the pills are antidepressants. 118 million scripts were written for antidepressants in 2005. CNN article


The US is stoned on antidepressants! And we're still depressed!



Mother's Little Helper

What a drag it is getting old
"Kids are different today,"
I hear ev'ry mother say
Mother needs something today to calm her down
And though she's not really ill
There's a little yellow pill
She goes running for the shelter of a mother's little helper
And it helps her on her way, gets her through her busy day

"Things are different today,"
I hear ev'ry mother say
Cooking fresh food for a husband's just a drag
So she buys an instant cake and she burns her frozen steak
And goes running for the shelter of a mother's little helper
And two help her on her way, get her through her busy day

Doctor please, some more of these
Outside the door, she took four more
What a drag it is getting old

"Men just aren't the same today"
I hear ev'ry mother say
They just don't appreciate that you get tired
They're so hard to satisfy, You can tranquilize your mind
So go running for the shelter of a mother's little helper
And four help you through the night, help to minimize your plight

Doctor please, some more of these
Outside the door, she took four more
What a drag it is getting old

"Life's just much too hard today,"
I hear ev'ry mother say
The pursuit of happiness just seems a bore
And if you take more of those, you will get an overdose
No more running for the shelter of a mother's little helper
They just helped you on your way, through your busy dying day

An Australian Customs photograph shows a man caught with two live pigeons stuffed in his pants as he got off a flight from the Middle East. When I first saw this photo I thought of the movie "Spinal Tap" and the line, "What is that? An armadillo in your pants?"
