Someone in the Transportation Security Administration was feeling charitable this week. When rapper Freddie Gibbs attempted to pass through airport security with two sizeable bags of weed in his luggage, instead of confiscating the drugs, an unidentified security agent returned them in the suitcase with a note reading "C'mon son."

Gibbs tweeted a photo of the note yesterday morning, though he seems to have removed it since (an archived photo can be found here). Later that day, the "Look Easy" rapper posted another status update: "Bout to go thru security at the airport again." Let's hope he was a little more careful with his luggage this time.

“Madame George”

Van Morrison | 1968

One of the first stream-of-consciousness epics to make it onto a Van Morrison record, his drawn-out farewell to the eccentric "Madame George" lasted nearly 10 minutes, combining ingredients from folk, jazz and classical music. The character that gave the song its title provoked speculation that it was about a drag queen, though Morrison denied this in Rolling Stone. "If you see it as a male or a female or whatever, it's your trip," he remarked. "I see it as a ... a Swiss cheese sandwich. Something like that."
