Swollen Faced Stallone Pleads Guilty

Lawyers for the 60-year-old star "Rocky" aka "Rambo" plead guilty in Australian Court on charges of bringing banned Growth Hormone into Australia. "I made a terrible mistake, not because I was attempting to deceive anyone but I was simply ignorant to your official rules. I feel terrible that my breach of the rules has set a poor example to members of the public, whose opinion I cherish dearly." A customs search of his luggage during a Feb. 16 visit to Sydney revealed 48 vials of the human growth hormone (Jintropin.) Stallone threw four vials of the hormone testosterone from his Sydney hotel room four days later when customs officials search it.

Human growth hormone is used to build muscle mass and is considered a performance enhancing drug. The maximum penalty is a fine of $91,500 and five years in prison, but Stallone faces a maximum penalty of just $18,000 on each of the two charges because the matter is being heard by a local, not federal, court. Stallone's lawyer Phillip Boulten said the actor should be spared a criminal conviction, saying Stallone took the hormones for medical reasons. Boulten said Stallone was taking both substances under medical supervision. "This is not some back-alley body builder dealing covertly with some banned substance in some sort of secret way," he said. "This was a legitimate medical condition being treated by doctors of the top ranking order in the west coast of the United States."

Stallone said that?? I find that hard to believe... Where are the "yo's" and "I dunno's?" He should have ended w/"Let's put it behind us a put a few shrimps on the barby" (or whatever it's called).

Yes, Stallone actually wrote those words in a letter to the court. Always the articulate one, Sly chose to write instead of speak.

Ever wonder where Sly gets the testosterone from? The answer is in Wisconsin:

ELDERON, Wis. (May 13) -
Wisconsinites have deep-fried cheese curds, candy bars and Twinkies. They now have deep-fried livestock testicles, too.

More than 300 people paid $5 for all-you-can-eat goat, lamb and bull testicles at the ninth annual Testicle Festival at Mama's Place Bar and Grill in Elderon in central Wisconsin. "Once you get over the mental (aspect) of what you're eating, it's just like eating any other food, and it tastes good," Buster Hoffman said.

The event has grown every year and now they fry up to 100 pounds of testicles, she said.

Butch Joubert, 58, likes the parts sandwiched between bread with tartar sauce. "After a few beers, you can't really tell the difference," Joubert said.

Finally a useful purpose for men! My only question is, if you did this with humans, what would men have left to think with?

At some point in our lives, some of us want to quit "the game" and settle down with that special lady.
But the big day -- your wedding -- is one of the most stressful events you will have to go through. There may be a voice in the back of your mind asking, ”What the hell am I doing?” Half of all marriages end in divorce, so men, Shell offers a community service. LISTEN TO HER! If you still want to marry, go directly to the nearest mental hospital!

Wow- Glad I can be of help Mike. I can't believe men buy into the stereotype that women dream about getting married since childhood. Modern women is probably more apprehensive then men about marriage. It's usually men trying to lock down a good woman. Politicians pushing "family values" propaganda has pushed marriage into some people's heads. It makes marriage a trend and not a commitment. So, yes Mike, hear me well before you ask a woman to marry you. Otherwise, it may just be a woman calling you up to go to a Wisconsin festival!

In Rocky Balboa he looked awesome at age 60. If this is what growth hormone will due, no wonder people use it to turn back the clock.

Ginger, the legal risks are not worth it. Although some Drs. have prescribed growth hormones, they need to have the lab tests to document the low levels before prescribing the drugs. Many Drs. who specialize in anti aging have been targeted by the government so I would say, stay away from growth hormone until the laws give better protection to the patient and to the Dr.

Hey Legal pub,

Is it true that Iron Mike and Blonde Bombshell used to be married? They sure seem like exes to me.

Yo, its a medical condition. It's not performance enhancing... it's just making up for a deficiency.

Legal Pub said...

It would be neat if Butch Joubert would add a comment and tell us a little more about the tradition. Come on Butch, if you read our stories, please share some of your insights on the Wisconsin festival.

Legal Pub said...

Butch Joubert was the man in Wisconsin who commented on the testicle festival. There is another story about the festival on a previous thread.

As for Stallone, he has set a real poor example. First he inspires, then the truth comes out. There are no short cuts to being a good role model.

Yo. Don't use the stuff. Only use stuff under Doc advice. Or I did but I didn't really inject ...


No pain? No gain!

Rambo and the Rock got two things in common: One enhancement through better science and Two, Stallone can't count very well in either of his last 4 "last installments."
