Hazelnut spread drops alleged rapist

As I predicted, Nutella, the popular chocolate and hazelnut spread that is so delicious on toast, crepes, and wheat tortillas (not that I would know - it has milk byproducts in it), has decided not to renew its contract with the Lakers' former Golden Boy Kobe Bryant. They also removed his image from their website within days of Bryant's arrest.

Perhaps I'm a tragic example of mass-media's effect on American youth, but the moment that I Kobe's problems broke in the news, the very first thought in my head was, "But what about his Nutella endorsement? What was he thinking?"

We shall see what becomes of the athlete's endorsement of Sprite. Obey your thirst.
