Every Rose has a bud??? Indiana cops claim they found pot and other illegal drugs in two of Bret Michaels' tour buses last night. The DeKalb County Sheriff's Office tells TMZ Bret was onboard one of buses when cops made the stop at around 11:30 PM. K9s found the pot. One of the buses -- not the one Bret was on -- had Schedule II controlled substances inside, and cops tells us they're illegal drugs.
Citations were issued but no arrests were made. The case is being forwarded to DeKalb prosecutors.
Michaels' rep gave us the following statement:
"Two of Bret’s tour buses were pulled over late last night. Officers on the scene claimed there were no trailer tag lights. No arrests were made. Mr. Michaels allowed an open search of the buses and everything was handled in a professional manner."
Have a hidden secret that you've been burring for years...? Well a clear conscience is just a few key strokes away. MY WORST SECRET.com is a website that allows you to (anonymously) out your (or someone else's) dirty little secret(s) and gives you a chance to come clean with anything from your hidden sexuality and your obsessive love of animals to weird things you and only you (until now) have known about. And if you are a perfect person (you know who you are) take some time from throwing those stones and read about someone's hidden flaws.
It's entertaining to say the least.

And you thought $6 for a 12-pack was too expensive. You’d have to spend a good portion of your paycheck to get drunk off of PBR if you lived in China.
In America it’s called PBR and is the blue-collar/hipster beverage of choice. In China it’s called Pabst Blue Ribbon 1844 and will run you $44 a bottle!!!!
Why 1844? It's the year the original brewery was founded. Is it a new recipe? Or is Pabst Blue Ribbon just re-bottling it's same old crappy self, in the hopes the Chinese are suckers for a decent advertising campaign? The latter, I hope
Kinda crazy to think that a beer like this can go for such a steep price but I don’t think I’d spend more than $4 for a PBR. And that price is still a real stretch.

Carl Crawford from the Tampa Bay Rays took one... er... two for the team.Crawford said he doesn't wear a protective cup because it's too restrictive and doesn't plan to change. "You couldn't hit it in a better spot. It just took the wind out of me," Crawford said. "Right now it's real sore, but the doctor said there was no damage. I'm guessing I'll take Wednesday, July 21 off."
Hump day no more for Crawford.
Video Below (the belt) - UGH!
"That, ladies and gentlemen, is why you should always wear a cup."

Al Yeganeh, who rose to fame thanks to being portrayed as a "Soup Nazi" on a 1995 episode of "Seinfeld," reopened his store on Tuesday, much to the glee of soup fans and devotees of the hit TV sitcom alike. According to Reuters, about 100 people lined up in the 90-degree heat -- some for as long as an hour -- just to get a taste of Yeganeh's famed soup.
Both on the TV show and in real life, Yegenah -- who self-branded himself "The Original SoupMan" -- is as known for his strict ordering process as he was for his delicious soups. For 20 years, starting in 1984, Yeganeh was the owner of Soup Kitchen International on 55th Street near 8th Avenue in Manhattan. Riding the popularity of his "Seinfeld" portrayal, he shut down the popular business in 2004 so he could pursue franchise opportunities. Yeganeh still owns the rights to "The Original SoupMan" brand today.
"He's still the heart of the company," Bob Bertrand, "The Original SoupMan" president, told Reuters. "We cannot change the recipes, we do not change the recipes, every time we want to have a new soup he develops it for us."
Six years later, his shop is officially reopening where it all started, 259A West 55th Street in New York City, under the name The Original SoupMan. Just don't ask for free bread, please.

Info-God Vince is back with a new product just in tune with the current state of affairs in airport security - "The ScanWOW" just in case you have monkeys in your pants or were out of Flying Pasties to keep your privates private is this ingenious device.
Just keep Rick & Len away from it.
Credit to listener MARK JENKS for the find.
We’ve been waiting weeks for another high school dropout with a shiny badge and love of electronic weaponry to unleash his rage on an intoxicated baseball fan. Thankfully, the Taser dry spell has ended in spectacular fashion.
Over the weekend, at a minor league baseball game (Daytona Cubs), a rowdy fan had a slight run-in with stadium security. Without giving away too much of the plot, it ended with a portly man hitting the ground as 40,000 volts shot through his body. How about this as an in-game promotion?! The TZZZZerRattlers / "Get Tased At The Ballpark Night" sponsored by Duracell?
Not a James Bond flick but the latest gimmick to hit the market. "Flying Pasties" are meant to (quote) "obscure your private parts when entering a typical airport scanner". The latest security measure at airports is the so-called "naked body scanner". The contraption takes a whole-body photo and reveals any weapons you might have hidden. It can replace the strip-search, but people feel the image that TSA airport screeners see is an invasion of their privacy. Therefore, "Flying Pasties" conceal your nipples and crotch.These "Flying Pasties" cost $20. They're orange stickers printed with the word "Private" across the front. It's supposed to make you feel protected from prying eyes as you walk through airport scanners. But the most painful part is probably peeling off the "Flying Pasties". It's worse than a Brazilian Waxing.

Amy Adams is heading to Woodstock.
The actress will play Janis Joplin in a biopic of the '60s singer, Access Hollywood has confirmed.
A biopic for Janis, who scored such hits as "Me and Bobby McGee" and "Piece of My Heart," before her career was cut short by a drug overdose at age 27, has long been in the works.
Police responded early Friday to a call of shots fired at a home in Roberts and found a man apparently hallucinating an attack by clowns.
The 40-year-old man, armed with a shotgun, had fired several shots in his mother's home. It also appeared that he fired a shot at his mother and visiting father as they fled from the home in a vehicle, said St. Croix County Sheriff Dennis Hillstead.
"Pellets probably hit their windshield," Hillstead said.
Police arrived about 4 a.m. and surrounded the home. The man came to the door at one point and was "yelling at what he could see in the yard, but there was nothing there," Hillstead said.
The man went back into the home and fired more rounds, Hillstead said. In total, about 22 shotgun rounds were fired into the walls and ceiling of the home.
The man then went to the porch with the shotgun in hand and a bag of ammunition around his neck. He did not respond to police commands, but after the man slipped and fell, deputies were able to take him into custody, Hillstead said.
While being taken to a hospital for examination, the man indicated he had taken a hallucinogenic drug. He said he believed that people dressed as clowns were attacking his mother's home and that he had shot and killed a number of them, Hillstead said. He also said he had shot dogs that were attacking him and that his mother had been shot and killed.
"He was ... not in touch with reality," Hillstead said.
No one (imaginary clowns) was/were injured in the incident.
