T.I.

The Mike Vick Halloween Tribute

[Update]

11/1/2011 10:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TI Halloween Michael Vick CostumeT.I. has a lot in common with Michael Vick -- especially the part where they spent a couple of years in prison -- but last night T.I. paid tribute to the guy who's proven it's possible to bounce back.

T.I. and his wife Tiny hit up a Halloween costume party at the Gold Room in Atlanta -- T.I. dressed as Mike Vick... his wife dressed as a ref.

Sources close to the rapper tell TMZ ... the costume was his wife's idea, but T.I. agreed because he's been an MV fan since the Atlanta Falcons days ... and has a ton of respect for the guy.

So, we gotta ask ... is T.I. trying to make a statement??

MIDNIGHT TOKER    

MICHAEL VICKS FAVORITE MEAL
Moose-and-Squirrel Meat Balls
(Especially useful recipe if main ingredients have been dead for 24 or more hours before harvested)

Three pounds, ground moose and squirrel, any proportion; six slices soft white bread; one-half cup water; one-third cup butter; one-and-one-third cups chopped onion; salt and freshly ground black pepper; two tablespoons chopped parsley; two tablespoons flour; one-and-one-half cups milk.

Soak bread in water five minutes. Squeeze excess water out. Melt four tablespoons butter in skillet. Sauté onion in butter until tender. Combine moose and squirrel meat, squeezed bread, four teaspoons salt, one-half teaspoon pepper and parsley. Form mixture into one-inch balls. Chill twenty minutes. Heat remaining butter in skillet. Brown moose-and-squirrel balls on all sides. Cover skillet and cook slowly 15 minutes. Remove balls to warm platter. Sprinkle flour over skillet droppings. Stir and cook one minute. Stir in milk and bring to boil. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Return moose-and-squirrel balls to skillet. Simmer four minutes.

Serves eight

Gata- Honest and sincere apologies from me to you for the two posters I see who were utterly over the mark with their ugly race-based comments. Now, moving to the other 95 percent of comments, the tribute by this criminal rapper to a convicted felon, dog murderer is offensive to most posters. Get it in perspective, luv.

Not only did this idiot forget to glue a bunch of dead pit bulls to his costume, he forgot the jumper cables that the dogs were electrocuted with, the gun he shot them with,the rope he strangled them with, water that he drowned them in,etc., etc. What a LOSER! What's the costume next year? Hitler? Casey Anthony? What an uneducated ****!

To error is human; to forgive is devine. . .Get over it people! Michael Vick made mistakes - you haven't??? He grew up in that environment. . .he has changed his life around and deserves this chance and, he's proving himself. Move on people. . .everyone else is. . .
