Where was that job on Career Day?  There would have been a line at my school.

They could just use Thomas Magnum's mustache.  That would be easier.

Paintball markers we're originally invented for the purpose of marking trees that were to be cut down by the Forest Service.  I imagine a couple of workers were out marking trees one day and got bored and decided to play some "Assassin" or whatever, hence a new sport was born.  That's why they are referred to in the sport as "markers" and not "guns."

Hawaiian weeds look a lot prettier than the crap popping up in my Midwestern garden.

Guerrilla gardeners could use this method to spread seeds into hard to access areas.

Would it work on all the goddamn mint that invaded my garden? It's farking everywhere. Smells delightful when I take a weed-whacker to it, though.

I just can't drink that many mojitos.

On a smaller scale, you can take out individual plants with herbicide by constructing the "tongs of death".

I want to play paintball with air support in a kudzu field.

/"no you don't" says anyone who stepped in a kudzu field ever.

It seems the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Management received a larger budget this year...

Mock26: Real men use frozen paintballs!


You haven't been able to do this for a very long time. You can't freeze paintballs and then fire them to any effect, the shells get too brittle long before you get anywhere with the insides.

Yeah, yeah. Its all fun and games until the plants evolve to shoot back!
