America - (Bong-Hits-4-Gold! Mess): Eight times Olympic gold medal winning US swimmer Michael Phelps is to smoke weed for the nation after accepting a $10 million sponsorship deal from cigarette paper manufacturers Twizla+ Jumbos.
The announcement comes as a new promo picture of a grinning Phelps, 23, 'smoking from a bong' suddenly appeared on Kellogs Cornfakes (sic) packets on breakfast tables across the USA.
An International World Anti-Doping Agency spokesman said today:
"Like, er,.. it's not like weed is a performance enhancing substance, man.
Twizla+ Jumbo Marketing meanwhile is said to be thrilled and may be expanding its promo solutions to other celebs.
The campaign is already head hunting President Barack Obama's 26 year-old half brother George after his headline grabbing smoking foray in Nairobi over the weekend.
Michelle Obama is a Matanuska Thunderfuck aficionado by preference.
