Petition to Boycott Kellogg's for Treatment of Michael Phelps

Thanks to recently published photos of Michael Phelps getting intimate with a bong, Kellogs ended its endorsement deal with the athlete. And because every action leads to an equal and opposite reaction, 311 people (and counting) are petitioning for a boycott of Kellogg's products.

It's a pretty bone-headed move by Kellogg's, and we're sure this petition is going to be super-effective. Some of the bullet points:

  • The Kellogg's has profited for decades on the food tastes of marijuana using Americans with the munchies. In fact, we believe that most people over the age of twelve would not eat Kellogg's products were they not wicked high.
  • That Kellogg's has decided to end their relationship with Olympic Swimmer Michael Phelps after pictures of him surfaced doing exactly what most Kellogg's customers do right before enjoying a bowl of Rice Krispies mixed with Keebler Cookies with an Eggo on top.
  • That this action by Kellogg's, while legal, is totally bogus.

People are taking this maybe a little too seriously — the comments on the petition do make for fun reading though, and here we present the best [sic all]:
