Well, parts of him are famous, anyway. 29 pages of comments and counting:


There's no such thing as bad publicity, right?

LOL! Obviously he missed a spot shaving!

Seriously though, I thought if your suit splits like that its a DQ? A girl at the Italian Nationals split hers before her race and was DQ'd.

So much for his suit trapping air.

She must not be enjoying the double standard.

"She burst into tears as she was forced to stand down from her race."

Apparently there's been a shift in how the Romans feel about backside nudity.

He made it to Perezhilton as well. Now, he just needs to swim on an individual event at the World level to be known for his swimming than his crack shot. Wasn't he allowed to wear a brief over that? Put a brief in your warmup gear for future cracks.

pictures like that are exactly why I'm so happy masters allows for a 'modesty suit!'

some of the better reader comments on that link were:


I wonder if the suit will end up on Ebay?

Gorgeous! I'd give him the gold!

Make mine with lettuce and tomato.

Now that's a salad I would love to tosse!

Who knew swimming was such a great spectator sport?

I wouldn't mind seeing those buns bouncing off my ceiling!

This looks like something Brüno would wear. Don't you think?

Absolutely filthy and gratuitous!

I think I'm going to go make some cupcakes.

His Bottom gets Top Marks!

How em-bare-assing!


Ewwwww! That swimsuit looks like cowboy chaps! Must be designed Texas for San Francisco! lol

Well Ricky-as they say, The Show Must Go On. And WHAT a Show -Hubba Hubba:)

I volunteer for post-swim massage duty.

Another headline about athletes and crack.
someones comment: I think he must be punished verrrry severely. Me first!

That's Asstastic!

Finally, a wardrobe malfunction I can get ----behind!

OH MY GOSH!!! Embarrassingly AWESOME! He has really nice butt. Wish I could get his number to let him know he made my day and night.

all I can say is "baby got back!".

Now, THAT'S a wardrobe malfunction I could get behind.....figuratively and literally....

Phelps only smoked pot.
This guy is clearly on crack.
