Elderly people eating wild grass and getting sick to their stomachs. Ah...That makes me giggle and feel warm inside.
2003-05-05 01:03:28 PM  
Were they drunk like that guy a couple of months ago?
2003-05-05 01:03:46 PM  

"Police said the group of hikers came across the wild grass and decided to eat it in the belief that it was healthy and tasty."

Man, I hope they never come across a pile of horse shiat.

They came from the eye clinic and the doctor was short on pot for the glacoma. Poor elders, couldn't wait till 4:20 for their daily dosage...

WTF were they thinking? Even dogs have a reason for eating grass... when they're sick and actually want to throw up. These people did it thinking it would be good. Morons!
2003-05-05 01:06:50 PM  
Aren't they supposed to bake it into brownies first?
2003-05-05 01:10:54 PM  
Aren't they supposed to smoke it instead?

Damn old hippies.
2003-05-05 01:13:16 PM  
The snozberries taste like snozberries...
2003-05-05 01:14:57 PM  
did anyone else read that as "bikers"? hmmm...elderly bikers on grass.
2003-05-05 01:17:58 PM  
They shoulda been eating tree bark instead..

Works for the North Koreans...

I take it you have never heard of Lemon grass have you?
2003-05-05 01:20:27 PM  
The guide should have regulated on them old farks. Once you get to a certian age i guess u just do stupid sh!t like that.
2003-05-05 01:21:52 PM  
I guess that ruined their plans for a lemon party.
2003-05-05 01:23:49 PM  
"half kentucky bluegrass and half California sensimian. You play nine holes on it and then smoke the bejeezus out of it."

Caddyshack (I know the quote isnt exact, dont flame me).
2003-05-05 01:27:49 PM  
what the fark??? I was waiting to read in the article how they were stranded and were desperate for food, but no, they just said "hey what the hell lets eat grass" DAMN GRASS!! FOOLS........FOOLS I TELL YOU!!
2003-05-05 01:28:02 PM  
I wonder if they cooked it or ate it straight? I would think you would want to sterlize it, never know who or what releived themself there.
2003-05-05 01:28:17 PM  
Let that be a lesson to people who think all things natural are healthy.

For further lessons try a hot cup of hemlock tea with a side of missletoe jam spread over some fresh toadstools.

Maybe the elderly folks' ATW (All Terrain Walker) got stuck in mud, or maybe stalled while attempting to negotiate a steep incline.

Once immobalized, they may of thought that their only hope of survival and bowel regularity was to eat grass.

What's an old man supposed to do?
2003-05-05 01:34:45 PM  
You see, this is what happens when you let the elderly on the loose. You need to keep them caged up - locked up, even. You cannot afford such horrors.

It's a shame that it takes a bunch of idiots to eat grass pee'ed on by rabbits to know that eating what they were walking on is BAD.

Stupid... so stupid.

I give this 4 (of 5) stupid points. They get a silver star for originality.
2003-05-05 01:35:53 PM  
The wild grass I grow IS healthy and tasty.
2003-05-05 01:37:31 PM  
They just needed a couple more stomachs.
2003-05-05 01:39:15 PM  
Farking old people...they watch "Cocoon" and stuff like this happens.
2003-05-05 01:41:02 PM  
I shouldn't be bitter about old people...if it wasn't for them, who'd spend all my social security or lobby for adult diaper dispensers in bathroom.

2003-05-05 01:54:39 PM  
Smoke it dont eat it
2003-05-05 01:55:14 PM  
Old people are funny. Class-A entertainment all the way.

heh-heh-heh OLD people heh-huh-heh
2003-05-05 02:04:47 PM  
Forget the grass-eating fogies, what about the fur-eating pawn dogs?

Big, bold butter dogs lap up porno stud roles
2003-05-05 02:08:55 PM  
Drop boulders on their arms. That'll show 'em.
2003-05-05 02:13:20 PM  
Leaves of four, eat some more.
heh heh heh
2003-05-05 02:13:58 PM  
If it had been my coworkers they would not have eaten it, they would have smoked it.
2003-05-05 02:19:02 PM  
there is a difference between grass and 'wild grass'?

2003-05-05 02:32:04 PM  
hahahahahha old people are stupid
2003-05-05 02:40:37 PM  
Elderly hiker: 'Hello mountain rescue?'
mountain resue: 'Yes caller, how can i help?'
Edlerly hiker: 'Send help...and pizza'
Elderly hiker: '...hello?'
2003-05-05 02:43:36 PM  
Old people need to be isolated and studied so it can be determined what nutrients they have that might be extracted for our personal use.
2003-05-05 02:45:38 PM  
For even more fun, tell them city-slickers that eating ferns is a-okay. Just don't tell them about the runs that come afterward...hehe.

On a serious note, what is with the perception that anything "natural" is good for you? Your crap is the product of natural processes, but do you eat that? Hell no. Same with some of the stuff that grows in the wild. Do you eat berries because they're simply growing on a tree, without knowing whether or not they'll kill you? Again, HELL NO. Stupid people.
2003-05-05 02:56:36 PM  
Shouldn't that be grass poisoning? As far as I know, grass isn't food.
2003-05-05 03:03:45 PM  
Apparently, their loved ones had put them out to pasture.


LOL@ "not enough stomachs"
2003-05-05 03:12:20 PM  
God dang its supposed to be smoked!

2003-05-05 03:32:42 PM  
I pity the fool who eats the healthy and tasty grass.
2003-05-05 03:42:37 PM  
Eat more meat....

/Ryno says...Fark PETA
2003-05-05 03:45:25 PM  
It tastes like burning!!!

2003-05-05 03:50:10 PM  
If it tastes like chicken stay out of the kitchen.
I wonder who the farker was that suggested that they should eat grass... "duh, dat looks yummy... where are my dentures?"
2003-05-05 04:08:30 PM
