Tony Allen farts, Memphis BBQ in Texas, and Juicy J's Stripper Game



TMI Tony
Grit-grinding Grizzly/Twitter superstar Tony Allen lives large and tweets larger. But is our chatty hoopster taking this whole "living in public" thing just a little too far? Allen likes to pamper himself, so it was no surprise when he dropped this tweet about his rubdown.

It was, by all accounts, a relaxing massage. Judging by this follow-up tweet, it may have been a little too relaxing.

'Cue & A
An English reporter from The Dallas Observer sampled some "Memphis-style barbecue" at Red, Hot & Blue in Plano, Texas, and used his dining experience to create "one great big clusterwhoops of Memphis-based assumptions." So what can you learn about Memphis by eating Memphis-style ribs in Texas? For starters, "All Memphis barbecue restaurants look like an uncomfortable halfway house between a TGI Friday's and a Planet Hollywood." Also, "All serving staff in the whole of Memphis are unfailingly polite and friendly and seem to genuinely want to eat the food served at their place of employment." And the rather obvious: "Memphis hates brisket."

Digital Juice
Three 6 Mafia's Juicy J has released a video game based on his track "Bandz A Make Her Dance." The object of the game is to keep the strippers from falling off their poles by throwing money at them. Just like in real life.

If you throw enough money around at, Juicy will drop a note saying he's proud of you.
