Actor Gary Busey hit a low in his drug addiction days when he found himself snorting cocaine off his dog.
The Big Wednesday star, who claims he has been sober for 13 years, couldn’t help himself when his pet pooch rolled in a supply of the drug.
He tells U.S. news show Access Hollywood, “I went in like a cropduster with my nose flying first and snorted the cocaine off the dog.”
But he got more than he bargained for: “You get a little bugs, you get little hairs, you get grease and goo from the ground; it’s not at all a healthy thing to do. But when you’re an addict, you don’t think of health, you think about destruction of yourself unconsciously.”
Okay, 2 things make this even more awesome than your average “washed-up celebrity admits to snorting drugs off pet” story:
“The Big Wednesday star, who claims he has been sober for 13 years…” “Claims”. Because no one really believes anyone could be that insane without help from drugs.
“…it’s not at all a healthy thing to do.” Coke is fine for your health, but when you snort it off your dog, suddenly you’ve gone too far!
If I may quote Margaret Cho here: Gary Busey is not a part of nature!
p.s. Go see Best Week Ever’s re-enactment. You’ll thank me.
