    There are scholarly comments across the internet debating if this is the origin of the phrase “Blow smoke up someone’s arse”.

    Look alive, people. Don’t make me bring this out. 

  3. RangerJay says:

    This would go great with my Gin & Tonic enema kit!

    Were they ‘Mostly Dead’? Someone call Miracle Max!

    It looks almost as pleasant as lung cancer.
    Although presumably it would give you arse cancer instead.

    Brings a whole new transatlantic confusion to “I’m just popping out for a f*g” 

  6. Robert Cruickshank says:

    That could leave you with a bad case of cigarette butt.

    I love it, some sort of advert placement engine has decided that an advert for hypnotherapeutic “Stop smoking in one hour” should adorn this article. 
    I think it would take most people less than an hour to decide that smoking in this way was not what they wanted to do.

  8. now that’s what I call blowing smoke up someones ass!

    “The rectal smoke isn’t working, let’s try his lungs!”

  10. If they where dead that probably wouldn’t help. And if they where unconscious  smelling salt would probably work better. If they’re not reacting to smelling salts, it’s fairly sure they wouldn’t react to that.

      “If they where (sic) dead that probably wouldn’t help.”
      …PROBABLY?!? What, we end up with tobacco zombies?

      • Well, the clinical indicator of dead absent other external causes in the modern medicinical world: “Does the person react?” “Is the heart beating?” “Is there breath?” and if you want to go out on a limb “Does the EEG look like braindead?”

        After about 10 minutes of being considered clinically dead, you’re considered officially dead.

        But, it has been known that people who where pronounced clinically dead have occasionally come back to life. So the modern medical opinion of “dead” can’t be all there is to it. In fact, medicine is pushing the boundary of dead further and further out. By now, under some conditions, you’re considered alive hours after you stopped breathing and having a heartbeat.

        So I believe that the people backthen before modern medicine noticed some strange things too where people who seemed dead, weren’t really. I can only surmise that this interesting smoking device is one (perhaps missguided) attempt to push out the boundary a little. But then, has anybody actually tried the thing in modern times? I mean, we don’t have to go so barbaric. But is there any clinical study of the effect of a nicotine injection on patentients considered clinically dead? No? So who knows…

    My ass takes filtered menthols.

  12. Joshua Danchik says:

    So, is this method of smoking much healthier? Or do you just trade lung cancer for colon cancer?

  13. Sean McLaughlin says:

    And you thought second hand cigarette smoke was bad!

  14. Holy smokes, it’s coming out of his belly button.

  15. Using the whole bellows, doc?

  16. Antinous / Moderator says:

    Not really woo.  It’s a stimulant, and rectal administration is a great way to get fast absorption. It’s a probably not very effective equivalent to an epinephrine injection.

    • feetleet says:

      Yup. Just like insufflation (nose) or ocular administration (eyes). Yes, that Looper thing is real. With a capsule or pill, it’s colloquially called ‘plugging’.  This is the same reason ‘dip’ is supposed to hit harder than cigarettes – sublingual and gum administration, sped up by fiberglass cutting a path into the arteries. I’d avoid putting fiberglass in your nicotine butt bellows, though.  

  17. Listener43 says:

    Tobacco enemas were so popular that they were applied to dead people.
    Hmm.

  18. irksome says:

    “Man, that satisfies.”

  19. Selena60 says:

    Put some pot with it and you’re looking at the next Southern Alabama U frat craze.

  20. Preston Sturges says:

    I read that the reason “blowing smoke up your ass” as synonymous with nonsense is that one of the first scientific papers about saving drowning victims was a comparison of the rectal tobacco treatment versus the primitive forms. of artificial respiration.
