Ice-T has been a television staple, playing investigator Odafin Tutuola on the long-running show Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. During last week's episode of the procedural show, Ice-T's character offered Amanda Rollins (Kelli Giddish) a little bit of his cinnamon raisin bagel, prompting Twitter users to ask what Ice-T's actual favorite bagel was. The answer he gave drove the internet to absolute madness.



Twitter immediately lost their cool.





How has Ice-T not had the chance to even try a bagel?


Several users pointed out that his character on Law and Order: SVU loves bagels. T's answer was plain and simple:

Meanwhile, Ice-T's claim that he'd never had a bagel was making headlines everywhere, prompting the hashtag #BAGELGATE, with many people attempting to prove T had, in fact, eaten a bagel at some point in his life.



Ice-T himself even weighed in on the investigation with a video of his character NOT eating a bagel created by Vulture.

He was also thoroughly weirded out by the immense interest in his bagel-related habits.


Ice-T was never expecting things to get this out of hand.

To continue trolling his fanbase, he baited them with another insane claim:

Though, honestly, it seems like people were more concerned about bagels than coffee.

For one glorious day, the internet united around #BAGELGATE. Ice-T may not have understood, but many people were glad they were along for the journey.







Has Ice-T truly never eaten a bagel? While it's impossible to prove a negative, it doesn't seem likely that he'd lie about something like this! But if there is a reason, you can be sure #BAGELGATE investigators will find it!

Christmas is upon us. It's time to get those Christmas present lists together.

So... who has been naughty and who has been nice?

Who is getting diamonds and who is getting coal? Yuck, coal. Is that even a thing anymore? Who even started that idea?

There has to be some funnier or more "for the times" type of "you've been naughty" stocking stuffer.

I feel like the statement coal used to make is kind of last century at this point.

Apparently I'm not alone in this thinking.

I admit, I love my stuffed animals. They're the best.

Some of them have been with me for years and I have them proudly displayed in different spots around my apartment. And when I've packed them for a move, I've done so with all the tender loving care I can muster.

What is it about them that stirs up these feelings?

Believe it or not, it's quite possible to form emotional attachments to inanimate objects!

They say your 30's hits different, like one day you're young a hopeful and the next day you're just WAY too old for this.

What is the "this" you're suddenly too old for?

No idea. It's different for everyone, but make no mistake, it'll happen to you too.

Maybe it already has?

Do all mothers go to the say mom school or something? Because they seem to share the same advice or go on the same platitudes, don't they?

Here's an idea.

Maybe they're just older, have more experience, and are trying to keep us from being dumbasses in public. At least, that's what I think.

I'm definitely grateful for my mother's advice—it's saved me more than once—and it seems many out there are too. And they all seem to have heard the same things from their mothers, too.
