Alas, poor Yorick! I smoked him, Horatio, a fellow of infinite … heh. “Horatio.” Your name has “whore” in it.

hamlet-and-yorick.jpgLast week, three Texas teens were arrested for “decapitating a corpse and using the head to smoke marijuana.” Which is just … uhm … you know, wrong. Seems these three wise men (and there may have been a fourth) dug up an 11-year-old boy who died back in 1921, and the cops don’t know where the poor kid’s noggin is now.

Morbid story, but it’s made all better by Slate, where Arthur Delaney provides a detailed exploration of how, exactly, one might make a bong out of a skull. I mean, how can you go wrong with an article with insight like this: “The disadvantage of this method would be the tendency for the skull bong to roll over when set down.”


And I’m totally naming my next band The Rolling Skull Bongs.

There's something wrong about this story. Digging up a corpse, and turning a skull into a bong seem like a LOT of work for a bunch of pot heads to follow through on.

And if you read the Slate thing, it becomes clear they were either highly motivated to make it work, which seems unlikely for potheads, or there's a lot of details missing as to what really happened.

In my experience, the one thing pot heads excel at is discovering new and exciting ways of inhaling/consuming pot. It's all munchies and Family Guy until someone mentions the word "bong", and then they get all MacGyver on your ass.
