Michael Phelps for Frosted Flakes...

After setting an Olympic record with 8 gold medals, super swimmer Michael Phelps has agreed to appear on boxes of Kellogg's Frosted Flakes and Corn Flakes. Yeah, because processed cereals are healthy—GEEZ! The Associated Press reports:

Move over Tony the Tiger, here comes Olympic champion Michael Phelps.
The record-setting swimmer will soon be appearing on boxes of Kellogg's Frosted Flakes and Corn Flakes.
Kellogg Co. made the announcement Tuesday. The winner of eight gold medals at the Beijing Olympics will be featured on Frosted Flakes and Corn Flakes boxes expected to be in stores by mid-September.
Battle Creek-based Kellogg says the images of Phelps that will be used will highlight some of the most memorable moments of the games.
The 23-year-old Phelps is a Baltimore native who has lived and trained in Ann Arbor in recent years as part of the University of Michigan-linked Club Wolverine.

Worrisome, because kids look up to Michael Phelps and boxed cereals are NOT healthy, they’re nutrient-deficient, and, often contain toxins called acrylamides. Then again, you can’t expect much from Phelps, he eats chocolate-chip pancakes and white bread—BIG DUMMY—and world record sprinter Usain Blot is no better, he's powered by chicken nuggets and yams!

Clearly, top-performing athletes have some incentive to translate their success into financial security. Shocking!
