The Second Side

I could put something really witty here if I wanted.

"Hey, like, this kid cut off a corpse's head to use as a bong, man!"

Nickolas Buckalew, a teenager from Vermont, is going to jail for disinterring a corpse and stealing its head to use as a bong. Among the details in the story that can be placed in the "No Shit" file:
"A psychiatrist has diagnosed Buckalew with mental health issues."
The most shocking part of the crime?
"On April 8, 2005, Buckalew broke into a tomb, opened the lid of a casket and cut off the head of a corpse. He stole eyeglasses and a bow tie from the dead man."
I can understand stealing eyeglasses and a head, but stealing a corpse's bow tie is way, way, way over the line.

Kinda gives the phrase "head shop" a whole new meaning, man.

Seriously, this kid needs to lay off the drugs, man. It's people like him that give the rest of us pot-smokers a bad name.

It's like anything else. The societal norm likes to blame fringe interests for antsocial behaviour. Drugs, Rock n Roll, Dungeons & Dragons. These folks would be wacked in any event. When the psycho is otherwise 'normal', ie "He was such a quiet, well behaved boy", they take pity and blame the parents.

Humans. As a spexies, they can really piss me off.

He just wanted to be Al Franken. Is that so bad? Who hasn't stolen the glasses and bow tie of of a corpse for that reason...

the word verification is priceless.....


It's the AFLAC duck giving head.....

It's that "Finklestien...Shit...Kid!" that's the bad influence.....

(and yes, to me "Shit" is a proper noun....HA!

I don't even know what to say to this, but I'm so glad you shared it. Suddenly I feel very stable and healthy.

And I agree with Heather. They give the rest of us a bad name. ;-)

The sound one makes after taking a really hard hit off a skull-bong.

Heather: Well, he gives us grave robbers a bad name, too. Someone always has to spoil it for the rest of us.

Fletcher: I think you just stumbled across our band name: The Spexies.

Davis: In this case, "Shit" is part of a name.

Tree: So where does the pipe go? The eyes? Nose? Ears? The . . . esophagus?? Seriously, now I'm curious.

It's all a matter of personal taste and what tools you have on hand. I'd be more inclined to drill a hole in the top of the skull and put the pipe there. I can provide a few diagrams, should you be interested.

And, Spexies is a GREAT band name.

Word Ver: bjrfp.
Um, well, it has bj in it, which I know amuses.

How about a pipe in each eye socket? It would be kinda romantic, like two straws in a milkshake.

huh-huh, bj, huh-huh

I blame it on Mcguyver.
The man is just a terrible influence on kids-- when they're stoned.

I feel really spexy today.

You couldn't look un-spexy if you tried.

You're too sweet to me.

I started rethinking this whole thing. I mean... we never even saw the tie right? It could have been a really great tie. Like a tie to die for. The Holy Grail of ties.

Maybe we shouldn't be too quick to judge until we have some idea about this incredible tie.

I want that tie.
I haven't seen it, but I want it.
I must have that tie!

All this talk about ties has got me hungry, man.
