The fun never stops with Chad Ochocinco. The Bengals' wide receiver is back in the news because a phone number printed on boxes of "Ochocinco's" takes callers to an explicit phone sex line, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer.

The company that makes the cereal, PLB Sports in Pittsburgh, says it will look into the situation. The phone number is supposed to take callers to a charity, Feed The Children. The problem resulted when the first part of the number was printed as 1-800 instead of 1-888.

Not related in any way, but amusing nonetheless, is that PLB also produces Pedroia's Premium salsa and Kevin Youkilis beef jerky, and was responsible for Flutie Flakes.
