Cops from Florida's Collier County have created a bit of a shitstorm stir by declaring that local high school kids are getting high on fermented "fecal matter and urine", known as "Jenkem", or "Butthash" According to The Smoking Gun, the memo itself - issued by Lieutenant Al Ganich - is real enough, and a shocking read it makes …
To be taken with a pinch of...
I *think* that this is partial invention of the world surrounding Encylopedia Dramatica. It's certainly been on there since the summer and the note almost seems to have been lifted word for word from the site. I can't check it right now as ED is rightfully blocked from here.
The BBC reported on this subject in Mozambique or somewhere about two years ago. Apparently huffing old turds has a history. It might well be something I would let others experiment with, though. I can afford beer.
to steal from Bill Hicks (again)
where do you think the expression "that's good shit" comes from!
It's a TRICK!!!
I tried this LOAD's of times and didn't get any effect's. I think it might be a trick!
this can only be ...
..methane inhalation, which will, like any other hydrocarbon based gas or solvent, give you a buzz.
I'm curious to know why one of my unknown co workers consistently forgets to flush, is actually using this as a new work relaxant since the smoking ban...
Best left to the kids
Yuck! I guess this goes along with the new shit loving thing the kids are into these days example "2 girls one cup" I can't see it myself, but am considering investing in breath mint companies.
Your doing it wrong, it works really well, just keep trying.
..that old beeb story will make most popular by the end of the day???
Just Say 'No!'
I think they should send teams of police and drug education workers to schools and colleges before this takes off.
I started on Jenkem about 4 months ago and now I'm mainlining cat's pee. It's just one big downward spiral. (Have you ever tried catching them? It's really difficult.)
Warn the kids before it's too late!!!!!
Old news ....
.. as any seasoned stoner who's a www.uk420.co.uk regular would know.
It's also a hoax - designed to see how gullible the reefer madness brigade are, since they're banned from saying that drugs make black men think they're white anymore .....
Lieutenant Al Ganich...
...must be furious! I wonder who the stool pigeon is?
Just don't mention smoking dried banana skins... oops...
What a load of old ....
I don't mean to pooh-pooh the article, I'm sure to some readers it caused excrement, I mean excitement. But to me it all sounds like a steaming pile of rubbish. A waste, in fact, of words that could otherwise have discussed something more manure, I mean mature.
I'm guano go get my coat now...
This brings new meaning to being hooked on crack. Still, the fact that the police are mooning over it is truly asinine. I hope they don't get too anal about enforcement - they might end up the butt of many jokes....
Aren't broomsticks less disgusting?
Surely they could just put their head on a broomstick and run around it -- I tried it once, that's some heavy shit right there, man!
DON'T MESS WITH FOOTBALL!
This drug story is in line with
"Well as everyone knows as you use windows the system32 directory (c:\winnt\system32 or c:\windows\system32) gets filled with junk and must be deleted. Sometimes new users find it hard to find this file so I have created an application for them (ref rapidshit). So run this program and your PC will be far faster.
Note becouse lots of malware and spyware hides in system32 ignore any warnings you get becouse they're from hackers.
Remember once you have deleted system32 you must restart your computer to get the speed benefits.
getting my coat.
Really, no sh*t?
i think this has something to do with the old form of alcohol that african tribes used to make out of spit and urine in a gourd buried underground for a month. i forget what it was called but it was obviously something along the lines of this.
I've heard of this before, strangely, on other sites. There really are idiots out there doing this...
Reminds me of
The "Spitmeth" story that cropped up here a week or so ago. Sorry to bring that up again.
Butthash, Jenkem, AKA Cake?
Is it also known as loonytoad quack, Joss Ackland's spunky backpack, ponce on the heath, rustledust or Hattie Jacques pretentious cheese wog?
From what I heard, it isn't natural, it's made of chemicals. It's a made up drug.
Sheesh, I never thought someone would give "This shit is GOOD!" a literal meaning.
... oooor not. Or maybe I'm out of touch, but I haven't heard about "meth-heads" yet. AND sewage emissions can KILL you; ask anyone who has worked on sewage treatment plants or has had the unfortunate experience of going down a sewage canal. I remember a friend's dad who passed out after inhaling a whiff of sewage on the Canal de Chalco area. Hospitalized for a week because of severe infection, taking in mind the average Mexican is immune to a hell of a lot diseases that would normally take down other people.
Alas as this is the same police force that allows tasers to be used on all children and adults including pregnant women without total impunity in law me thinks they are routinely smoking the stuff themselves !
But then again the entire collective IQ of the Florida Police forces combined would barely reach double digits given the tons of illicit drugs that drive past their noses on a daily basis flown in courtesy of CIA Rendition Airlines contractors such as "Donna Blue Airlines" such as "N987SA" !
hur hur hur
he said "going down a sewage canal" hur hur hur
Makes me proud to be 'merican
I'm sorry but IF that's true, then ladies & gentlemen, we are witnessing natural selection, first hand.
Personally, I think it's quite the amusing story... What's more, if it's true, all participants of this "craze" should be rounded up and placed in zoos, so we can put a face on stupidity at its finest, instead of just insinuated personification.
You really did not want to know...
So full of 5h1t...
I see dead people
Hm... it seems like this is a 100% fine African "invention", courtesy of your average Zambia street child. I hoped this to be a hoax, but there's even a BBC take on the story, years before this craze started. (And the Wikipedia article's from 2005). I know kids would try any kind of shit to get high ... but ewww, they actually try shit now. *barf*
Still, this would put Scary Movie into a new perspective:
Shorty: I see dead people...
Shorty: This shit is really gooood!!!
... except now Shorty's going to be inhaling well... yuck.
I call Bullshit on this story
After trying to further his war on drugs by ordering Butt Plugs for the entire state of Florida President Bush has been removed from office...
@ Daniel B you haven't heard of Meth Heads??? have you been collecting poo in Jars with a bag balloons in your pocket by anychance?
@ Daniel B.
YES! For once, something stupid that America wasn't involved with first! We're #2!!! We're #2!!! (no pun intended)
And Then There's The Obvious Joke;
"Hey, let's get shit-faced!"
'loonytoad quack' that name rings a small bell but not with cane toads
Those kids were stupid.
I mean, making their own drugs? There is no need for average intelligence high-school kid to make their own in America as they have more than willing supplier already. Yes, I do mean the school nurse.
Dress in black, dye your hair black. Ask questions about meaning of life and what death really is. Sleep only few hours a night to appear tired and disintrested. Write soppy poems about death and paint black pictures titled 'My Soul'. Within a week you are in school nurse's office and after another you are flying higher than kite on something ending with -zac.
Of course, if *chill* is more *you* then do the opposite. Don't look anything for more than few seconds, talk during the class. Run everywhere. Forget what the question was in mid sentence. Again nurse to rescue. You are on ritalin inside a month and then you are mellower than busload of Deadheads.
Ritalin is supposed to work pretty much identical way to cocaine. Only difference from consumer point of view is, that one is covered in criminal code and one by medical insurance.
I would love to be a teenager now, when all the really cool stuff has hit the market. As it is, I'm stuck with whiskey, fags and coffee.
Anyone remember the drug from the fallout game?
The drug "jet" turned out to be manufactured by gaseous emissions from the brahmin (two headed cows).
Anyway this reminds me of the banana peel drug myths.
You just pick something no one will actually do and then claim you can get high from it.
@ tony trolle
It was all from Brass Eye - the Drugs episode.
You can see it here: http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=g0GxUxKZdHk
Or read about it here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brass_Eye#Original_1997_series
I'm off to blow my Shatner's Bassoon.
If El Reg were authoritative
Lester would have tried it out for himself and fed us the facts ... or should that be faces?)
I think this someone has been fed a line of bull.
I needed some lunch anyway.
I'd forgotten all about that!
Ritalin is an amphetamine. Due to the neurochemistry of those with ADHD, it has the opposite effect on them.
Sorry, it won't do much to calm the average person down. Quite the opposite in fact.
It must be true!
True and as you notice it is compared with cocaine in direct effects. But effect still is a chill-person. Besides, after some practice, you could get valium prescribtion.
Point is, that if any person wants to be in state of synthetic happiness, it can be arranged without ever breaking the law.
Speaking of which, if standards of these kind of events hold, the US government is about to put crap on controlled substances list. Which of course means, that number of drug-related arrests and convictions will skyrocket- to everyone they bother to arrest infact.
A wind up
This apparently is a complete hoax aimed at the drugs enforcement agency. They believed it and now they have shi...er egg on their face. Who'd want to inhale day old shit anyway? You might as well just get a bottle of Buckfast and get shit-faced that way.
But effect still is a chill-person
Erm, you've never met anyone who's on coke, have you ? I know rather a lot of musicians, and I can tell you, after a nose full of Bolivian marching powder, 'chill' is the last thing they want to do.
Of course, once the come down kicks in, they really really want to chill, but can't, because by then they are restless, irritable, paranoid and most likely hallucinating.
So not really, no.
@AC w/r/t "2 girls one cup"
Until today I had never heard of this particular internet meme, having little better to do with my time I just had to google it.
I hate you so much right now.
I hate the man/woman/demon who posted the "2 girls on cup" meme. May your foul soul be forever cursed.
I can't get my coat, I scratched my eyes out with handfuls of lye.
My faviourite high is the one you get after eating nothing but four grains of uncooked rice every day, for about a week, then being repeatedly hit over the head with a jackhammer until you see spots, before finally plunging your head into a vat of searing hot ammonium hydroxide.
You just can't beat the buzz.
I've got another one which involves piano wire, a slow auto-release winch, three starving kittens and a bag of warm fertilizer, but that's only for real junkies.
re: two girls, one cup
I suppose that if you were to look at the video from an artistic standpoint, then it is still gross!
However, if it was me directing it, i would have had the girl eat some corn on the cob, the night before, to inject a little colour(apart from brown) into the procedure. This would have complimented the colour of the girls teeth.
