Forget 26.2 or 13.1. Try .10 or .05 if you want to participate in a race without months (or even minutes) of training.

Hulk Hogan and Bubba the Love Sponge have settled their sex-tape legal matters

Hulk Hogan and Bubba the Love Sponge have settled a lawsuit over a tape made of Hogan having sex with the radio personality’s former wife.

The Associated Press reports that the pro wrestler’s civil suit against Bubba the Love Sponge Clem was settled for terms that are not being disclosed. Hogan filed a suit against Clem and his ex-wife, Heather Clem, earlier this month, claiming that the couple recorded him doing the deed without his consent.

To emphasize that everything is now hunky-dory between the two one-time close friends, Bubba the Love Sponge read an apology Monday during his morning show on the Tampa, Fla., station 102.5 The Bone. (Yes, that’s the name of an actual radio station, which surely also broadcasts this fine program.)

“After further investigation, I am now convinced that Hulk Hogan was unaware of the presence of the recording device in my bedroom,” said Bubba the LS (look, I can only type the words Love Sponge so many times in a single post), according to the Tampa Bay Times. “I am convinced he had no knowledge that he was being taped. Additionally, I am certain that he had no role in the release of the video.”

The Tampa Bay Times article states that Hogan is still pursuing legal action against Heather Clem, as well as that $100 million lawsuit against Gawker, which posted the video of an intimate encounter that took place six years ago and that most people could not possibly have wanted to watch.

The Times piece also notes that some believe the two men may have concocted this whole mess as a publicity stunt. In which case: uh, I guess it worked.
