â†µProFootballTalk points the way to a video (extreme language warning) of a guy who really, really likes his marijuana and marijuana-derived products who, for about 10 seconds in the video, hangs out with Oakland Raiders running back Justin Fargas. This is what ProFootballTalk writes: â†µ
â†µâ‡¥Though Fargas isn’t shown smoking any marijuana, his presence in the video could be enough to get the NFL to begin sniffing around. â†µâ†µSince I'm so deeply in touch with the streetz, let me help PFT out here: Yukmouth, the star of the video, clearly states "He don't get down," meaning Fargas doesn't smoke marijuana. Sniff around all you like, but if a man who flashes whole bricks of hashish and pillow-sized "turkey bags" of weed says you don't smoke pot, then you don't. He would know if you did, and because he's obviously high, he'd say it out loud for the world to hear. â†µ
â†µIn further weed-related news, Michael Phelps says the recent stress of his marijuana-related flap has called London 2012 into question, and that he needs time to consider his next steps, which he'll do by ordering a pizza or two and watching Spike until he falls asleep on the couch. Sponsors are hanging tight, the outrage called for by some columnists has failed to materialize, and no one cares, a point Sam Mellinger pinpoints nicely in his column from the KC Star: â†µâ†µ
â†µâ‡¥The formality of celebrity is gone. They're welcome to take their shoes off and put their feet up. â†µâ‡¥â†µIt's as if this "facebook generation" evaluated people not as cartoons, but instead as ... um ... flawed individuals living life? Attention Baby Boomer mailing list! Send this information out in one of those email thingies we've been hearing so much about!â†µ
â†µâ‡¥It's OK if they have holes in their socks. â†µâ‡¥â†µ
