I need crack.
April 22, 2008 2:13 AM   Subscribe

At some point today, lost in the webs of metafilter, I came across a link to a page where a guy described seeing two men share a crack pipe then have sex with each other. There were photos too. I, ah, need to find it again. It's for a friend, I swear.

Maybe you got there from a blinking banner ad you saw while searching for a Photoshop CS2 serial crack?

No, I have no experience searching for crackz.

Every time I feel like I understand how thoroughly Metafilter always delivers when a request is made, something like this happens and makes me reset the gauges.

I'd make some sort of comment about the contents of BrotherCaine's link, but I don't think there is anything... sayable there.

If you can't find that particular recount of a bacchanal, this one has a similar theme.

For the love of god, white folks. It's WACK. As in WACKED out. WACKY. WHACK is the noise the flat of your hand makes when you slap it against a table.

Now write "CRACK IS WACK." 500× on the blackboard, or I'll whack you with a ruler.

This is pretty much what the expression "Dude, WTF?" was invented to describe.
posted by Jofus at 4:30 AM on April 22, 2008


And while we're at it, it's WHOA. Woah is "woe-ah". Appending an h breaks the "oa" diphthong by stressing the a. The a is not aspirated; the w is. You don't have to pronounce it "hwoa", but for the love of god "WO-AH" makes no sense.

I prefer "Crack is whack" to "Crack is wack" because I like being to enunciate that "h" while I say the phrase. "Crack is whack," I say, nodding sagaciously and sipping a fine cognac.

Less than a minute after they left, the guy that lives in the house across the alley pulls up in his car and takes several shopping bags out and places them directly where the action had taken place. I am not sure if he could feel us watching him or if he could smell ass crack and crack, but he stood there for awhile looking puzzled.

Oh, god. This is why i love MetaFilter.

"Now write "CRACK IS WACK." 500× on the blackboard, or I'll whack you with a ruler."

Since we're going there, "×" does not mean "times;" it's a multiplication operator. When someone writes "I've done this 20×," it makes me want to kill a llama.

Operators without enough numbers to function correctly piss me off. It would make more sense to say "500×10," or something like that, but even "Now write 'CRACK IS WACK.' 5000 on the blackboard..." doesn't make sense, at least in the way you want it to.

Something tells me Viomeda was sarcastically over-nitpicking in order to mock Eideteker's own sarcastic nitpickery of the spelling of "woah" and "whack".

I think the sentence is just missing an article, psmealey. Possibly from Cosmo, though I'm not ruling out High Times.

Alas, the sentence will probably remain without the article indefinitely.

The first thing I thought when i saw the thread was, "Jesus, I can almost smell that guy's cock."

Then it struck me that that's the most unpleasant thought I'd ever had.

Then I thought, I definately shouldn't post that.

And now here I am, posting it. Funny old world.

It's woah, as in Noah. But with a w.

Legend states that Noah was transporting most of the animals during the day, when the sun was out and the water was hot. This was fine for animals that could float, but the unicorn's horn shifts the animal's balance and swimming becomes impossible. The unicorns realized that death was inevitable and only the ark could keep their species alive. On the final day when the waters were the most turbulent, hundreds of unicorns dove into the water. They sacrificed themselves to form a unicorn bridge for the chosen pair. But as the chosen pair approached the ark, the storms increased their fury and the waters rose. The unicorns yelled Wait Noah! as they drowned, but their voices were muffled by the crash of waves and thunder:

"Wa..oah. Wai..ah. W..oah."

Well, usually to rickroll you want the link to be disguised as something that people want to see. "Jesus, I can almost smell that guy's cock" is not the first thing that springs to my mind as enticing a click.

It's like they say: you catch more flies with honey than vinegar, but to catch the most flies you need SHIT.

You know what really grinds my gears?

Crack.

You are walking along, minding your own business, when you look down and see it, just right there on the ground. Crack.

I mean, you want to do something to hide it, because there are kids around and you don't want anything bad to happen, but damn it, when did it become your job to police your neighborhood? Isn't that what the Department of Public Works is for? To cover up all these cracks?

What happens when a kid steps on it and breaks his mother's back? Huh? Now I've got that on my conscience.

Fucking crack.

I saw a scene really quite similar to this once, down near the River Clyde in Glasgow, only it was a man and a woman, and they were smoking heroin.

When the bloke saw me looking, he somehow misinterpreted my aghast expression for one of lust, and offered me 'a go' on the woman for £10.

Ah, memories.

Every time I see examples of the desperation of crack and crystal meth addicts I think of Iced by Ray Shell, a fictional journal of a man descending into crack addiction (inb4 cortex makes 'descending into crack' joke) which recounts several such harrowing moments.

What disturbs me most is the banality of sex-for-drugs in these people's lives.

I had a young friend in collage days who had a crush on a lovely named Dawn. Using a Southern saying, I punned that he'd love to get up the crack of dawn. The funny part was a few weeks later when he was riding with his pastor dad on a home visit and mentioned the girl and said, 'yeah, I sure would like to get up the crack of Dawn', and that's when the other meaning hit him and he peed his pants. What he thought was funny about it when he wasn't getting it I never knew.

I can't tell whether you're being cheeky or not (inb4 cortex 'cheek' joke?) but I meant 'banality' not as in boring and unadventurous, but as in commonplace, a regular occurrence, nothing major, just another part of life. Instead of 'holy shit I'm selling my body to feed my dependence on a chemical substance'.

And that disturbs the hell out of me.
