I am hoping that I do not misunderstand the reference to "smoking reefers"

mikey said...

They're missing a big niche.

How about CS Gas scent, for all your authoritarian train aficionados?

Or better yet, rotting human flesh for your gestapo wannabes?

Or the scent of unwashed, sweaty bodies if your experience with trains is limited to pulling them.

Or a blend of diesel particulate and spray paint for that authentic inner-city experience...

"Coal-Fired Steamer ... Do not use smoke units around people or children w/ asthma or other respiritory sensitivites."

Does Black Lung count?

I laughed and now I am Hitler.

I like the safety tips (at their "Tips & Tricks" link). DON'T DRINK IT!!!

Back in the band days we had a smoke machine with piña colada smoke fluid. Unfortunately we did something bad to the machine and when the heating elements go wrong the smoke fluid comes out smelling like pee.

Did that stop us from stomping on the smoke button?

NO IT DID NOT.

My apologies to the folks who had to wipe down everything in the club after the show.

Smut Clyde said...

I did not see "burning mummy smell on that list either.

Substance McGravitas said...

I thought mikey had that covered.

J— said...

It's like that old song:

If you like pee in your colada
Coming down like rain

Will these work in a USB Aromatherapy stick? I'm asking for a friend.

Substance McGravitas said...

That really makes me want to buy the USB stick. Imagine the larfs when the smoke starts pouring out.

Which one has the highest THC content?

I'm asking for a friend.

mikey said...

Only slightly more believable than the railroad joke, this story is stated as gospel in several respected histories of papermaking.

Hmm. It's a claim in need of support. Please list the primary source respected histories of papermaking, and provide quotations where the story is repeated.

You see, while I don't doubt the story was actually told, I'd just like to know what constitutes a respected papermaking history....

FISH IS STEALING MY POSTS AGAIN.

FISH IS STEALING MY POSTS AGAIN.

On the internet you can go to FAIL for that.

Smut Clyde said...

Fish has an app for that.

Substance McGravitas said...

Papermaking, Fish apps, all the same.

Smut Clyde said...

Excuse me, I bought this statue yesterday for my Memory Palace, but when I brought it home I realised it was too large for the recess.

I'm sorry, but we can't take it back once it's left the shop.

No, you misunderstand -- I'm not trying to return it, I only wanted to buy a larger recess.

Ah, for that you want to go out the door, turn left, and then around the corner -- that's the Niche Market.

Substance McGravitas said...

Oh well doniche.

I have a feeling that "JT" is mixing more than simple smoke formulas in that double-wide back in the woods.

Burnt wiring and despair?

fish said...

I consider ZRM my friend.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

...say, perhaps that USB dealie could be modded to insert a little hash?

I'm asking for a fish.

Substance McGravitas said...

I consider ZRM my friend.

Perhaps he meant you were sharing the THC jokes.

tigris said...

Just what we need around here, zombies with the munchies. And if it turns out fish is a piranha, well, wouldn't that just be typical?

Substance McGravitas said...

Oh Ziggy, when will you ever win?

Another Kiwi said...

OMG when the Beer train hits the bacon train, it is going to be heaven on earth

Substance McGravitas said...

You may need Elixir the day after.

Elixir- NEW!!! (got a cold or the flu? This familiar vapor scent from childhood just might relieve your symptoms while you run your trains as you recuperate.)

Smut Clyde said...

Did someone say "Heaven on Earth"?

Substance McGravitas said...

Kea party!

In other news, a northbound train carrying industrial quantities of jello collided with a southbound train with a cargo of sponge-cake. No-one was killed, and police are laying no charges, since the law is not concerned with trifles.

Substance McGravitas said...

I heard the train went into a tunnel and was arrested for obsteamity.

mikey said...

Ok, so a train leaves Gary, Indiana traveling north at forty three miles per hour. At EXACTLY the same time, a train leaves Miami traveling west at thirty seven miles an hour. Assuming that the universe is 13.7 Billion years old and Schroedinger was not a pedophile, at what time will it be happy hour in Reno?

Substance McGravitas said...

Trick question! Nobody is happy in Reno.

Smut Clyde said...

Call no man happy till he is shot in Reno just to be watched dying.

Substance McGravitas said...

Jesus Croesus thought he had it all and then BOOM! Er, BANG BANG BANG!

When they discover the undead cat.

How many times do I have ot say it?

everything is better with Jello.

Although this is the first time that wasn't in response to a DK reference.

Smut Clyde said...

Sometimes I get Jesus and Oedipus confused, what with both being pierced through the feet, and both coming to take the place of his father.
