This is your brain, this is your brain on psuedo farcical opium like incense...
2001-10-25 09:41:29 AM  
Well, what do you expect from Iowans, for cryin' out loud?
2001-10-25 09:41:56 AM  
well duh haven't these idiots ever heard of opium inscense.. it's a great scent but how smart to you have to be to realize it doesn't contain opium... well I guess if you are smooking incense you are that dumb
2001-10-25 09:42:02 AM

2001-10-25 09:44:13 AM  
That's precious.....I have a synthetic clue I'd like to the sell them.
2001-10-25 09:47:27 AM  
The should be doing their duty as americans and planting cannibus instead of smoking that garbage. Ever hear of "soapium" I wonder if it is the same thing?

12 pounds of oregano were also confiscated.

In high school we got this kid "high" on baking powder. It was funny, we told him it was cocaine and he was acting all loopy. He died a few months after that and I felt pretty bad, he was inhaling PAM and died of heart failure.

yeah, so, lets all give a great big hand to whoever posted this for the least misleading headline ever.

The little morons should stick with drinking Nyquil

I'm from South Dakota, and boy, does this make us look good.
2001-10-25 10:17:33 AM  
Ok, I confess... I snort Altoids.
2001-10-25 10:18:59 AM  
Don't bogart the smell good!
2001-10-25 10:27:07 AM  
Next they'll be scarfing winegums by the fistful then staggering around like Dean Martin.

Iowa = Slipknot's biggest fan base. Now you know why.
2001-10-25 10:32:58 AM  
reminds me of the fake opium we have in Cincitsnasti we call it soapium or nope-ium
2001-10-25 10:34:04 AM  
Because Slipknot's from Iowa? Just a guess.

Went to Iowa over the summer. If all you had around you was beans, corn, cows, and pigs, you'd smoke incense too. then again, from what my wife's uncle told me, they make a lot of Crystal Meth up there. Fertilizer is easy to get to make it. And the either set up shop down wind from a pig place or go mobile. He told me he's seen a lot of exploding cars.

What always irked me, is that the corn and beans they grew, weren't for human consumption. I don't know why, but I guess I just wanted some farking fresh corn, being surrounded by it. But noooooooooo, it's for the pigs.

Couldn't they just feed criminals to the pigs?

i once sold Ben Affleck a six-pack of O'Douls
2001-10-25 10:43:43 AM  
Anybody know how to get a hold of these kids. I would like to sell them a dime-bag of Oregano.

Investigators say it is not known what effect, if any, the incense has on people who smoke it.

Lets hope it makes one sterile.

Grew up in Iowa, still have family there.

Yes, it is pretty boring for kids. Nevertheless, I'm sure that no teenagers in [insert your state here] have ever done anything stupid like this. If only they had more access to handguns then they could really have some fun! (Sorry, wrong thread).

As far as corn not for human consumption, I don't know what you're talking about. A lot of cities in Iowa have these crazy GROCERY STORES where one can purchase items such as CORN to eat. Most farmers do get a little cranky if you help yourself to their crops.

On the plus side, I did hear a rumor about Des Moines getting indoor plumbing next spring. I've got my fingers crossed.
2001-10-25 11:10:02 AM  
We've all been there, sold that, and got the person to have a nervous breakdown because of their publicly shattered self-image, c'mon...

Lay off 'em.
2001-10-25 11:17:32 AM  
Sweet Corn is not a big cash crop in Iowa. Too much FDA hassles, from what the farmers told me. All they grow in Florida is sweet corn, so I guess I had my expectations set too high. I think I was smoking bananas peels or something.
2001-10-25 11:18:04 AM  
man I will NEVER admit I am from Iowa, oh wait, DAMNIT!
2001-10-25 11:20:18 AM  
Don't fight it, Rabbito. Embrace your Iowegian heritage!
2001-10-25 11:23:44 AM  
Dunnski: trust me, the wife and kids feed relentlesly on me when they hear of stuff like this, I am better off just accepting it, it is in fact the first step right?
2001-10-25 11:25:08 AM  
Owe the

2001-10-25 11:27:36 AM  
If they were in Iowa they should be smoking that corn silk.
2001-10-25 11:34:19 AM  
All of the tall trees here in Morthern Missouri
bend noticibly to the north...

Boy, does Iowa suck.
2001-10-25 11:36:24 AM  
HAHAHAhA! That's soooo funny. And, uh, not funny 'cause I've done it before or anything. . . . shiat. . . .
2001-10-25 11:38:16 AM  
i just sold Anne Heche a continuum transformer
2001-10-25 11:45:45 AM  
That's right, Rabitto, acceptance is the first step on the road to recovery. If it makes you feel better, I now live in Kentucky. I've never been prouder to say I'm from Iowa.

Did you hear that Missouri is going to give the southern third of their state to Arkansas? Thereby increasing the IQ of BOTH states.

BTW, GeorgeBrett, I used to live in Kansas City, too. That place rocks. I'm going back in 3 weeks for a wedding and as much Arthur Bryant's as I can stuff my face with.
