I've been checking in all day to see if anything was going to go down.
Then I started thinking that people might be having second thoughts since the great February "Potato Wedger" prank.   :P

Looking at Mark's new avatar I was prompted to do a little googling.

Interesting site here.

www.rpgstudies.net

Gives details of loads of articles and bits and bobs regarding the Satanic side of RPGs etc. (Interesting stuff - though some of it will make you seeth with righteous indignation)

It would be great of they found this animal - but what on earth does 'snerk' mean?

Probably means inhaled, or exhaled thru the nose.

Makes sense.

Here's a question then for forum members: "What is the worst thing you have ever snerked?"

For me it would have to be thick Norwegian sour milk, which is like thick, sour drinking yoghurt. Someone made me laugh when drinking it, and it completely filled my nasal passges!

When I was in elementary school, I made a guy laugh so hard while eating that spaghetti came out of his nose... 8O  Unfortunately this image has stayed with me over 30 years, so I guess I paid for that in the long run....

The funniest line of all was the suggestion for further discussion at the bottom:

Do you have a story about how you disposed of the ashes of a relative?

LOL. Like Richard's snorting his dad's ashes was just another decision that anyone would come to....

Chocolate cake and chocolate milk at a birthday party, double streamer style! Blew my nose for a week straight until the cake stopped flowing. To this day I still do not eat chocolate cake or drink chocolate milk  :mrgreen:

You havent felt pain until you have snerked salsa up through your nose!  Happened to me about 5 or 6 years ago.  Thank God I was at home and not at a restaurant!

On a similar note.  I dared a friend of mine back in 6th grade to snort detergent (I believe it was Tide) and the dumb sonuvabitch was stupid enough to think I was serious and did it.  I swear I thought he was going to die the way he started screaming.  He was hopping around his garage trying to blow the stuff out of his nostril.  He actually picked up a water hose, turned it on, and squirted water up his honker....which worked but he had soap suds coming out of his nose for the next ten minutes.  He told me that he tasted soap for a week after that every time he swallowed.  :lol:

I think he tried smoking dried banana peels as well.  The guy was nuts.  :roll:

What the hell man, were you drinking it?! You're supposed to dip the chips in it not your nose!

Was it hot or mild?  :lol:

Reminds me of that Texas Chili Contest taster stand-in judge, Frank:

Frank: "Recently, I was honored to be selected as a judge at a chili cook-off. The original person called in sick at the last moment, and I happened to be standing there at the judge's table asking for directions to the Coors Light truck, when the call came in. I was assured by the other two judges (native Texans) that the chili wouldn't be all that spicy and, besides, they told me I could have free beer during the tasting, so I accepted."

Here are the scorecards: (Frank is Judge #3)

Chili # 1 Eddie's Maniac Monster Chili…
Judge # 1 — A little too heavy on the tomato. Amusing kick.
Judge # 2 — Nice, smooth tomato flavor. Very mild.
Judge # 3 — (Frank) What the hell is this stuff?! You could remove dried paint from your driveway with it. Took me two beers to put out the flames. I hope that's the worst one. These Texans are crazy!

Chili # 2 Austin 's Afterburner Chili…
Judge # 1 — Smoky, with a hint of pork. Slight jalapeno tang.
Judge # 2 — Exciting BBQ flavor; needs more peppers to be taken eriously.
Judge # 3 — Keep this out of the reach of children. I'm not sure what I'm supposed to taste besides pain. I had to wave off two people who wanted to give me the Heimlich maneuver. They had to rush in more beer when they saw the look on my face.

Chili # 3 Ronny's Famous Burn Down the Barn Chili…
Judge # 1 — Excellent firehouse chili. Great kick. Needs more beans.
Judge # 2 — A beanless chili, a bit salty, good use of peppers.
Judge # 3 — Call the EPA. I've located a uranium spill. My nose feels like I have been snorting Drano. Everyone knows the routine by now. Get me more beer before I ignite. The barmaid pounded me on the back, now my backbone is in the front part of my chest. I'm getting pie-eyed from all of the beer…

Chili # 4 Dave's Black Magic…
Judge # 1 — Black bean chili with almost no spice. Disappointing.
Judge # 2 — Hint of lime in the black beans. Good side dish for fish, or other mild foods; not much of a chili.
Judge # 3 — I felt something scraping across my tongue, but was unable to taste it. Is it possible to burn out taste buds? Sally, the barmaid, was standing behind me with fresh refills. That 300-lb woman is starting to look HOT…just like this nuclear waste I'm eating! Is chili an aphrodisiac?

Chili # 5 Lisa's Legal Lip Remover…
Judge # 1 — Meaty, strong chili. Cayenne peppers freshly ground, adding considerable kick. Very impressive.
Judge # 2 — Chili using shredded beef, could use more tomato. Must admit the cayenne peppers make a strong statement.
Judge # 3 — My ears are ringing, sweat is pouring off my forehead, and I can no longer focus my eyes. I farted and four people behind me needed paramedics. The contestant seemed offended when I told her that her chili had given me brain damage. Sally saved my tongue from bleeding by pouring beer directly on it from the pitcher. I wonder if I'm burning my lips off. It really pisses me off that the other judges asked me to stop screaming. Screw those rednecks.

Chili # 6 Pam's Very Vegetarian Variety…
Judge # 1 — Thin, yet bold vegetarian variety chili. Good balance of spices and peppers.
Judge # 2 — The best yet. Aggressive use of peppers, onions, and garlic. Superb.
Judge # 3 — My intestines are now a straight pipe filled with gaseous, sulfuric flames. I pooped on myself when I farted, and I'm worried it will eat through the chair! No one seems inclined to stand behind me except that Sally. Can't feel my lips anymore. I need to wipe my ass with a snow cone.

Chili # 7 Carla's Screaming Sensation Chili…
Judge # 1 — A mediocre chili with too much reliance on canned peppers.
Judge # 2 — Ho-hum; tastes as if the chef literally threw in a can of chili peppers at the last moment. **I should take note that I am worried about Judge # 3. He appears to be in a bit of distress, as he is cursing uncontrollably.
Judge # 3 — You could put a grenade in my mouth, pull the pin, and I wouldn't feel a thing. I've lost sight in one eye, and the world sounds like it is made of rushing water. My shirt is covered with chili, which slid unnoticed out of my mouth. My pants are full of lava to match my shirt. At least during the autopsy, they'll know what killed me. I've decided to stop breathing; it's too painful. Screw it; I'm not getting any oxygen anyway. If I need air, I'll just suck it in through the 4-inch hole in my stomach.

Chili # 8 Karen's Toenail Curling Chili…
Judge # 1 — The perfect ending, this is a nice blend chili. Not too bold, but spicy enough to declare its existence.
Judge # 2 — This final entry is a good, balanced chili. Neither mild, nor hot. Sorry to see that most of it was lost when Judge # 3 farted, passed out, fell over, and pulled the chili pot down on top of himself. Not sure if he's going to make it. Poor fella, wonder how he'd have reacted to really hot chili?

Well, this thread has certainly veered off in an unexpected direction!

I'll point out now that I posted this link in response to the complaints above about the slow April Fool's Day.

Actually, the banana peel thing works, somewhat.  It's a mild hallugicogenic.  Also, peanut skins (the little crinkly thingies you take from inside the shell, not the shell itself) are a pretty fair alternative to weed.  Yes, you guessed it, I was doing this sh*t about the same time I was playing AD&D, LOL.

My alter eBay ego piggfrogg posted some auctions and noted that they each had the viewing counters set at five.

Ifearyeti tried to look at them, but they had not yet entered eBays auction house mix.

Is eBay pulling a fast one here? Cheating up to make your auctions seem  more popular.
