Law and Order: SVU is known for pushing the boundaries on many things, including dialogue. I'm allowed to say this as somebody who once uttered this line: "Charmaine, Charmaine! How much did you pay for the rectal probe?" while playing a reporter on the show. Who can forget the time Mariska Hargitay's Olivia Benson got drugged by some mushroom gas and said, "I'm not the one who stabbed the captain with a pickle!"?
Well, the show is now entering season 17 and they really have to step up their game in explanations and fads.
Please take a look at that below photo set brought to you by an intrepid imgur user. These are all lines Ice-T's Detective Tutuola has said…or are they?
"Turns out that joint was laced with cat litter and soy sauce. Kids are callin' it Brown Christmas."
"It's called Brenda. Kids try it at parties, next thing they know they're online, getting' paid to yell at their own genitals."
OK, they're not real, as you have gathered, but they are amazing. Even SVU writers and producers have tweeted this out. What if one of these finds its way into a season 17 episode?
UPDATE: Ice has taken to Twitter to discuss the above lines. "That's funny," he said.
By the way, season 17 premieres with a 2-hour episode on Wednesday, Sept. 23 at 9 p.m. Dallas Roberts guest stars in a ripped-from-the-headlines episode that's all Robert Durst and The Jinx-y.
Love you forever, Law and Order: SVU.
