There is, of course, not a thing funny about mental illness. Except when it happens to celebrities. In this case, it's the ODB, who, after being released from jail, is spending some time in a mental hospital after giving off a few warning signs of schizophrenia.

"He would look up at the sky and say, 'Yes, I will do what you say.' He also said the voices had told him to rename himself 'Big Baby Jesus.'"

As opposed to, say, "Big Daddy Kane" or "Master P" or "Grand Master Flash" or something slightly less self-aggrandizing, eh? Heh.

Anyway, I think I will make an album as "Big Baby Jesus" now. Maybe I can get ODB to do a guest-shot. "Two diseases never before combined--schizophrenia and Tourette's!"
