People are just bolder in Boulder


I’m spending the evening reading new blogs and catching up on my sidebar blogs. No real entry tonight but I had this forwarded to me and living very close to the “Republic of Boulder”, I found it to be hilarious.


I did not write this, it’s from the Boulder Weekly

                                   Phelps should move to Boulder

You’ve got to pity Michael Phelps. Sure, he’s got more gold medals than there are days of the week. But he’s also got some crappy friends. The dude went to a party, took a couple of bong hits and had the misfortune of being photographed by a so-called friend.

The friend sold the photos to a British tabloid, and Phelps found himself being kicked around in the press by people who feel that he should live like a saint because he’s an Olympic champion.

Since when did winning gold medals mean the public owns you?

It’s time Phelps moved away from those no-good, traitorous friends of his and came to the People’s Republic. Here are 10 reasons he should move to our city:

10. You stay higher longer at altitude. (OK, so maybe that’s an urban myth.)

9. No one here eats Kellogg’s. We prefer classier fare like pizza and burritos to curb those post-ganja munchies.

8. When he’s done smoking mary jane, he can shred Mary Jane.

7. Boulder cops are directed to make busting pot smokers their lowest priority — after jaywalking. So, if someone takes a picture of
you holding a bong and shows it to the cops, the cops don’t give a damn.

6. The **** here is really good — and we have swimming pools.

5. Where else in the world can you get organic, shade-grown Fair Trade Nederland weed?

4. No self-respecting Boulderite would ever think to sell photos of a friend holding a bong to the tabloids, no matter how famous that friend was.

3. In Boulder, even members of City Council toke.

2. The only thing that makes us angry with Phelps is that he apologized rather than standing up and saying, “Yeah, I smoke pot. So the f*ck what?”

1. 4/20 needs a celebrity sponsor.


Funny but it kind of sums up Boulder.

Just for fun I suggest from now on that an overly large bong hit be referred to as a “Phelps”.

If you’re going to be known as the world’s fastest pothead in water you at least deserve a bong hit named after you right?

    I hate to go all “Law and Order” on you, Rock, but…you CAN NOT say with certainty that MP did (or DIDN’T) inhale. The picture’s incriminating, yes. Chalk it up to being young and stupid…
    Having said that, how can you NOT be LYAO reading that top-10 list?? They’re not THAT screwed up in Boulder, ARE they?? LMAO
    Well, maybe it IS the altitude, anyway…lol

    Imagine how much this country has changed just over the past three Presidents. One said he did not inhale, the toher was an ex-cocaine user, and our current President will not lie…………he did try it.

    Socially the idea to toke is getting oh so much more acceptible in all areas of life. It is still a drug that is tested for baseball, but not the fans. You know there are a few of them in the stands on Friday and Sat night. And no I am not stereotyping them because they love those awful nachos lol

    I think before I leave this earth it will be taxed and legalized for consumption in every state but maybe Georgia and South Carolina………they are always the last to do anything legally.
