Let’s Get “Up There”: It’s 4/20!
April 20, 2013
Puff, puff, give, toke ’til you choke, blazin’ up: whatever you call it, April 20th, or 4/20, is here, and buds everywhere will share bud with a variety of methods, from crushed soda cans to decorative glass tabletop fixtures. Hey, we don’t condone drug activities, and we’re not saying we’ve smoked up ourselves (because we haven’t –shifty eyes–), but we also know people enjoy weird holidays; 4/20 might qualify as one. Rather than ignore an opportunity to celebrate, we’ve sifted through the aromatic smoke to find some rather interesting items that remind us of our youth– uhh, if we smoked up, that is. Grab the Visine and let’s do this!– get to our list, we mean.
1. LIT! Candles
What?? No, not those type of lit birthday candles. THESE kind, he he he:
Is 4/20 your birthday? It is?? Well, have one on us– err, by that we mean a LIT! Candle set. Birthday candles shaped like a doobie are quite a blunt idea for a gift. Haha! Get it? We made a toke joke. Now blow out some smoke– uhh, we mean candles– and make a wish…
Now for a cake to match your birthday candles… How about a Digit Cake Mold? Cake molds shaped like digital numbers easily form retro digital numbers (420, perhaps?), and each mold is also microwavable in case your friend cannabis made an early visit today. Is it no one’s birthday on 4/20? Well, geez, do you really need a reason for cake?? And should you decide to add a “special” ingredient, go easy: too much will make you so sick you’ll want to die, like this cop who called 911 after eating a special brownie.
3. Pot Holder
Who needs a Pot Holder when you’ve got your hand? Get it? Ha ha ha. Dang, we’re funny. Now where were we… This literal item does exactly what it says it will: silicone protects your hands from getting burned while handling hot foods like extra tasty baked goods (we’re thinking brownies). Don’t fear the reefer: it’ll actually help you.
Ahh, and now that you and your pals get to sit down and enjoy special brownies or birthday cake celebrating the day, check out a weed-themed stoner comedy or two:
- Grandma’s Boy
- Super High Me
- Half Baked
- The Big Lebowski
- Up in Smoke (or pretty much any Cheech and Chong movie)
We’re not saying go out and smoke a whole ounce of bud all on your own. We recognize the drug problem in the country as well as the various research suggesting marijuana as a gateway drug– but hey, it is National Humor Month after all. You don’t need to be leveled to have a good laugh. And remember, kids, all actions have consequences:
