Shocking news today: Flavor Flav, the Public Enemy hype man who reinvented himself as wack-job magnet for spotlight-seeking tramps, has a new memoir that claims he maintained a $2600-a-day cocaine habit. FOR SIX YEARS.

You’re very honest in the book about your drug use. It got really crazy.

Yeah I was spending $2,600 a day, for six years, every single day. I don’t know how much that is but if you did the math, wow, I went through a lot of money. If I did the math I’d probably be shocked on how much money I spent, I’d probably punch myself in the face. [PopEater via WWTDD]

That math comes to $5.7 million of cocaine, which makes me feel WAY better about the rewards program that gives me a discount for every $500 I spend at the liquor store downstairs. I can’t even process how much cocaine that is. (“So many briefcases.” — Charlie Sheen)
