Kellogg Drops Phelps


The cereal company says,

…Phelps's behavior—caught on camera and published Sunday in a British tabloid—is "not consistent with the image of Kellogg." 

This would be the same company that for decades has been encouraging children to start the day by inhaling sugar by the spoonful. It's also the company that still proudly bears the name of the man who advocated yogurt enemas and pouring carbolic acid on the clitoris to prevent women from experiencing sexual pleasure.

Yes, it would be a shame to see a 14-time gold medalist's bong hit tarnish the company's image.

As is often the case, the Onion was way out in front on this one.
