One Bowl Too Many

So, I’m sure you’ve heard by now about the stoner dudes who dug up the body and used the skull as a bong? Dudes! Dudes. Dudes?

Weren’t there any apples around? Wouldn’t that have been exponentially easier? And how stoned were you already that you thought this was a good idea? I mean, aren’t there waaaay too many holes in a skull to get a good flow?

I bet there was at least one “I see dead people joke” though.

On my first foray overseas, as a freakin’ naïve 16 year old, I was shocked/impressed by some kids from California who made a bong out of a Coke can. They used said bong to smoke the hash they bought from the open-air market across the street from the hotel.

I’ve always loved the irony of this. You see, our student hotel was directly across from one of the most notorious drug markets in all of the middle east. Nice travel planning there, chaperones! The down side was that I had yet to even have a drop of alcohol, much less partake of the partoke. But watching was fun.

But I digress.

I guess now we know what to look forward to from the next big government anti-drug campaign. Some washed up conservative star (hey, I hear Patricia Heaton is looking for work!) earnestly lying into the camera:

“Drugs make people dig up the dead. Is that how you want your loved one’s skull to end up? As nothing more than . . . paraphernalia?”

To paraphrase Mr. Mackie from South Park:

“Drugs are bad, m’kay. Don’t do drugs. Because drugs are bad. They’ll make you dig up someone’s grandma and smoke a bowl out of her eye socket, m’kay.”

It was actually an 11 year old that had died in the 1920's. So how do you turn over in your grave if you don't have a head? Im sure his relatives are.
