Rapper T.I. and wife "Tiny" snatched up on drug chargeFILE - Rapper T.I. whose real name is Clifford Harris speaks to reporters outside the Richard B.

While his street cred can’t really be questioned, one must still ask if rapper T.I. (real name Clifford Harris) has some sort of strange love of the prison system. It’s hard to figure out exactly why Harris would risk going back to the clink by smoking weed while driving in his car. That’s what great big houses and hotel suites are for. Maybe he was celebrating his part in the No. 1 film from last weekend, “Takers.” Maybe he was enjoying a night off from his four kids.

T.I. and his wife, Tameka “Tiny” Cottle from the BET reality show “Tiny and Toya,” were stopped by cops Wednesday night in West Hollywood. Police say that after they smelled pot, they searched the car and found a “controlled substance,” prompting the arrests for drug possession. TMZ claims the substance was a small amount of ecstasy, which jibes with rumors everywhere else on the Web, although somehow meth got mixed in there too. No word on how this will effect the release of T.I.’s new album, “King Uncaged.”

When the pair were released on bail this morning, Cottle took the time to tweet: “Jus wanted 2say thank u 2every1 dats been leaving encouraging msgs & prayers! We love u guys:)going 2bed now! So glad 2b n a nice clean bed$.” And 50 Cent, who knows a little something about being locked up, tweeted his thoughts on the subject: “Man TI and tiny done got picked up agin for methamphetmines and ecstacy dam manTiny gotta take that charge. Say it was yoursBaby.” Nice.

    Sonic's Bacon Double Cheddar Croissant Dog

    Sonic calls this a "gourmet twist" on a classic. I am not so, so fancy, but I know that sprinkling bacon and cheddar cheese onto a tube of pork is not gourmet, even if you have made a bun out of something that is theoretically French.

    Pizza Hut basically just glued pigs-in-blankets to the crust of its normal pizza. This actually sounds good, and I blame America for brainwashing me into feeling that.

It is a smoked cheese bratwurst, covered in butter Teriyaki grilled onions, Maitake mushrooms, Wagyu beef, foie gras, black truffles, caviar and Japanese mayo in a brioche bun. Just calm down, Tokyo Dog. Calm down.
