56. Michael Phelps Takes a Bong Hit

Date: 1/31/2009
Key Players: USA Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps

After winning a record eight gold medals at the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics, a photo surfaced in a British Newspaper of Phelps smoking a bong. Predictably, mainstream media creamed him for not being a good role model and sponsors dropped him, but all we have to say is: "Duuuuude, imagine his lung capacity!"

USA Swimming suspended Phelps from swimming competitively for three months for his non-performance-enhancing doping.
