Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter? Meet Mike Tyson: Prostitute Hunter.

During an interview on The Today Show yesterday, the eccentric former boxer appeared with Spike Lee to promote his upcoming one-man show on Broadway. (Really, that's gonna be a thing.)

And the conversation with Ann Curry turned especially odd after Tyson was asked about his vegan diet and replied:

"There was too many prison cells, too many jails, too many lawsuits, too many bankruptcies, too many women, too many venereal diseases, too many everything. I got tired... I really got tired of, you know, like every time a prostitute – I would head back from a trip - I had to sleep with her. I was a prostitute hunter!"

Well... okay then! Watch the exchange now:

Wow. Who knew Mike Tyson had so much in common with Charlie Sheen? Okay. Probably a lot of people.
