Combine this device with a Real Doll and you'd make some people very, very happy.

What the hell is wrong with me? Normal people don't think these things.

I think I've had that. Or... it was *some* horrible illness that struck me down for 7 days and basically opened up both ends of my body. I lived on gatorade and saltines.

Couldn't find a video on subby's link (I might be a tard), so here's one on youtube. Skip to 2:45 to see Vomiting Larry in action.

I learned I new word today. I'm going to have to find a way to work 'emetophiliac' into every conversation.

Should be good times.

About 40% of my office got infected with norovirus at a staff luncheon last year, myself included. Between that and having a mouthful of stitches from some dental surgery that week, I was in utter apocalyptic hell for 3-4 days.

It's waffer theen.

I'm not an Emetophiliac, but for a while I was an Emophilipsiac.
