Southern Comfort

January 18th, 2009 · 121 comments

Though the issue might not be top of mind for sophisticated and urbane readership of this website, let this serve as your warning: Should you find yourself in, say, Fayetteville, Arkansas (like Melissa, a California expat currently attending the U of A) you’ll soon realize how important it is to lay down the law with regard to proper cud disposal.

I know that we live in Arkansas, and we like our tobacco, but the water fountain is not a spit cup for you're [sic] chewed tobacco. It is clogging up the drain. Please refrain from using the water fountain for this purpose.


Of course, when you live as far north as Baltimore and notice that your boss has taken to spitting chaw in your trash can, the situation becomes that much more dire.

Spit in my trashcan and I'll take a dump in yours :)

    I know we live in Arkansas, and we like our tobacco, and we can’t use the proper version of “your” to save our life, but the water fountain is not a spit cup.

      Or perhaps because, in Appalachia, ‘clogging’ is more often considered to be a Terpsichorean pursuit.

      Why bake the dog shit? That’ll make it dry and potentially bake out all the stink. I’d go with depositing diarrhea directly into the can.

      I couldn’t agree more with aaa’s assessment. Baking dog shit is a non-starter.

      Diarrhea has a way of viscerally asserting itself.

      Make sure you deposit with a smile :)

      Fortunately, I wouldn’t have to resort to diarrhoea direct deposits in order to get my point across. My cat, Professor Chaos, leaves plenty of portable stink bombs in his litter tray over night. A couple of them, thoughtfully placed in the trash can (preferably arranged in a smiley face) would do the job admirably.

      I thought it was just un-American to pass geography relating to stuff outside the US. You’d think that knowing American geography would be super-bitchin-patriot so you could show just how bitchin the US is and just how worth knowing it is.

      ok so I’m from Arkansas, and, well, I remember putting a makeup compact in my back pocket so I could create that awesome little worn-out ring on my pants that’s usually there from carrying around chew or spittin’ tobacco. Because that was cool. No, really. I was going for that ‘boyfriend jeans’ look. I guess.

      If the ped-egg crumbler had any brains, she would mix the crumbles right in with the powdered non-dairy creamer. They’d blend right in and then she could forge a preemptive strike against the whole office, for future spitting incidents.

      There are three ways to achieve this miracle.

      1. Roll the leaf into cylinders, which are ignited by placing a flame at one end.

      2. Freeze-dry and then vaporize it. Place the gas into scuba diver-style oxygen tanks, which can be conveniently strapped to ones back. (Tanks come in sassy i-Pod colors.)

      3. Hire Giorgio Armani or Britney Spears to concoct a tobacco-scented fragrance. Give it a name and a slogan. “En Bac: pour ceux qui aiment le nicotine et le sexe anal.”

      Well, on my island there’s no need to take a dump in a trash can or a fitting room.

    Why dump in the trashcan when you can just use the top of the desk?

      I prefer crapping in the filing cabinet in the corner that nobody uses. That way the stench of digested anger has time to stealthily permeate throughout the office.

    Hey, dude from #2 could just take his dump in the water fountain and then dude from #1 wouldn’t want to spit in the fountain anymore. Right? :-?

    I’m sleepy *yawn*

      Fluffy8u, forgive me, but your accent there sounds less “tobacco-chewing Southerner” and more “Jar-Jar Binks.” :D

    Oh wait one more!!!

    To whom it may concern:

    The fountain is not your spiting cup… It’s to make our Moonshine. Tobacco flavored Moonshine: good in theory, bad in practice.

    This is interesting because in my experience people who chew tobacco usually lack the skills to land one of them there fancy indoor jobs…lessin-a-course it’s managing a used mobile home dealership or leasing spaces at the local flea market.

      Claw,

      WOW!!!!! I’m astounded!

      I’m sure there’s a good explanation (a computer glitch, post-amyl-nitrate wooziness, etc.), but, in your tally of indoor career options for “Chew Aficionado” readers, you left out professional eBay sellers and craigsfisters.

      L@@k, accidents happen, but be more careful.

      You’re still AAAAAA+++++++.

      ps: I’ve been wondering…. Claw, were you born into the Unguiculata, or did you have it done?

      It’s not a big DEAL!!! I’m just curious.

    When did being a ‘real American’ entail being a monoglot anyway. John Adams could read, speak and write at least four languages (English, French, Latin and Ancient Greek). What’s wrong with a sign saying “We’re real Americans, which means we’re educated enough and have enough time on our hands – not having to plow the fields and all – to be bilingual.”

    What is wrong with expecting people who want to live in America to learn English.

    If we went anywhere in the world, do you honestly think they would accommodate our “disability” of not speaking their language? Heck no!

    So, go to classes, use it in your home, use it in your everyday life. Just learn ENGLISH!

    Keep your culture, keep your traditions, keep your language, too… but if you want to work and live here… Learn the language of the land!
