The latest episode of word vomit from Britney Spears happened Wednesday night at the pop starlet's Vancouver show.
According to reports, Spears walked offstage about halfway through the show, due to smoky air and ventilation problems at the venue. An announcement over the loudspeaker told attendees, "It's become uncomfortable and unsafe for the performers, including Ms. Spears. The show will resume as soon as the air around the stage is clear."
Britney got back on stage after about 30 minutes, and closed the show out with this lovely farewell:
"Thank you, Vancouver. You guys have a wonderful night. Drive safe, don't smoke weed. Rock out with your cocks out."
Check out the nonsense above.

"Queen taught me everything I know," said a rambunctious Katy Perry, before diving into a cover of the rock legends' "Don't Stop Me Now" at New York's Irving Plaza Tuesday night.
The pop starlet, 24, was on night two of her three-night Irving residency and plowed through almost two hours of hits, including "Hot 'N Cold," "Ur So Gay," "I Kissed A Girl" and a pretty rocking cover of The Outfield's "Use Your Love," which she promptly smashed her guitar after playing.
"Did we ruin it?" she nervously asked a stagehand.
"Fuck, we ruined it. Let's give it to someone, I'll never play that again."
Check out a video of our favorite performance of the night, the energetic Queen staple "Don't Stop Me Now," above.
Also on the bill are Reflection Eternal (Talib Kweli and Hi-Tek), The RZA and Sage Frrancis, as well as some "surprise performances."
Keep checking the Rock the Bells site for updates!

Hawkins, 25, is an Australian gal, best known for her title of Miss Universe 2004!!!
At the time, pageant co-founder and business mogul Donald Trump called her "the most beautiful Miss Universe I have seen in many, many years."
Hawkins has since pursued a handful of professional modeling gigs, becoming the face of Australian department store giant Myer and even doing endorsements for Covergirl.
Here she is at the Golden Slipper Day 2009 at Rosehill Gardens Saturday in Sydney.
Keep doing your thing, J!
The former Beatles played three songs together, including Beatles staple "I Saw Her Standing There," while Jerry Seinfeld, Sheryl Crow, Eddie Vedder, Donovan, Ben Harper and Moby rocked other performances.
This was the first time McCartney and Starr shared a stage since 2002's "A Concert for George," the tribute show to deceased Beatles guitarist George Harrison.
The actor and former boxer, 56, had been feuding with pro wrestler Chris Jericho, 38, for weeks before Sunday's event. Apparently, Jericho made a comment that Rourke's character in The Wrestler was "not my story," Rourke says.
So he took it to the ring!
After Jericho defeated wrestling legends Roddy Piper, Ric Flair and Ricky Steamboat, Rourke entered the ring and knocked down Jericho to close out the match!
You can check out video of the action here.
The country diva was named entertainer of the year, breaking Country legend Kenny Chesney's four-year winning streak.
"I've had a lot of good moments in the past four years. This one takes the cake," Underwood gushed during her acceptance speech.

Fawcett, 62, was in remission before the cancer returned in early 2007.
At that time, Fawcett announced she "never can say for sure" what would happen with her battle, citing that "it's ongoing."
-Spencer Pratt, alleging that girlfriend Heidi Montag is more talented than these five
What an eclectic group!!
Also turning up for the event was Eminem, who inducted Run-DMC with a moving speech.
"I still remember being in 9th grade when Tougher Than Leather came out," said Em. "I skipped school to go get it on cassette. As soon as I heard Run's House, it was pretty much a rap for me. Marshall Mathers became Eminem."
Beck's speech included a middle finger to everyone who ever stood in his way, Metallica reunited onstage with former bassist Jason Newsted, and the annual all-star jam was a cover of "Jailhouse Rock" (with Fontana, Beck, Wanda Jackson, Little Anthony and Spooner Oldham) and then The Yardbirds' "Train Kept A-Rollin" by Beck, Jimmy Page, Flea and Ron Wood.
It was a night to be remembered!
