While traveling in Mumbai, my IFTF colleague Jason Tester visited Boing Boing's flagship marijuana dispensary.
Sure it is not a Parallel universe Haberdashery?
They sell massive bongs that burn tiny MICROBONGS. You inhale the microbongs which continue burning in the lungs, powered by the simple act of breathing! You’ll be getting high without anyone even noticing.
Hence: The Bong Bong.
Yo dawg, I heard you like…
Oh, this just made my fucking week. Well played, sir.
It’s a Dispensary of Wonderful Things.
You been here for hour, you bong now!
FWIW my son thinks your website is called “Bing Bong”
(“Why are you looking at Bing Bong again?”)
i go to boingboing by typing “boing,” letting chrome autocomplete, and mashing enter. thus, i’ve accidentally searched for “bong” dozens of times now.
I have friends who have also searched for their bong dozens of times now.
Tomorrow on BoingBoing: a picture of the smoking ruin left behind after BoingBoing’s savage international copyright and IP lawyers are done with that place.

Well, http://boingboingmaternity.com/ does have a Unicorn…
Jackhammer Jill…Waterpipe Wendy.
Just throwing that out there.
In my mind, Waterpipe Wendy will now and forever be Jill’s girlfriend.
That actually refers to Bengalis (people from the Bengal region of India, also known as “Bongs”).
I used to work with a guy named Bong, which is apparently not an uncommon nickname in the Philippines.
Yes, me too. But this Bong was a girl.
Wow… I had forgotten this, but one of the guys in my biochem lab in grad school was named Du Bong Ha. I didn’t know him very well, but favorite name ever.
It’s even funnier in Norwegian, where “Du” means “You” and “Ha” means “Have” (infinitive).
You Bong Have!
Bong Bong is a Bengali restaurant.
Bong is the short for Bengali. This is evident from the large red dot signifying the red bindi Bong married women wear. I am kinda uniquely qualified to comment on this :) I own http://www.bonggeek.com and my wife runs the http://www.bongcook.com
So what’s the difference between “Bong” and “Bhangla,” then?
Bong is kinda short form.
There’s no other Bengalis on the Internet?
You are as serious as Slartibartfast. Lighten up, don’t you see the smiley. Uniquely because I own the bong* domains.
I thought RZA had the trademark on this phrase…
It could be a Law & Order fanshop (bongbong!)
