A theory has been making its way around Twitter over the last few years. It suggests that Ice-T and Dril are kindred spirits, or perhaps even the same person. And indeed, there are some suspicious similarities between the Body Count frontman and the anonymous internet auteur.

The bloggers go nuts for their tweets (guilty!):

They can both get down with a good unboxing video:

Neither is the type to kiss and tell:

But they are the type to get in fights on the bus:
