"I'll give them a straw," he said, according to The Mirror. You might recall that Richards also made headlines years back after claiming that he snorted his own father's ashes.

He later elaborated on that: "I opened dad’s ashes, and some blew over the table. I asked, should I desecrate them with a broom? So I wet me finger and I shoved a bit of me dad up me fucking hooter. I’m sure he’s still blessing me. The rest I put round a tree.”

From HP.com:

Purchasing non-HP ink and toner can wind up costing you in the end – producing blotchy, streaky, faded prints. Original HP ink and toner cartridges deliver superior prints 100% of the time.

FRACT is an increasingly popular street drug that causes its users to contemplate devastatingly complex math puzzles. Tina, 13, has been an addict for months. Here she struggles to determine whether, for any given integer a > 0, there are infinitely many primes p such that ap - 1 ≡ 1 (mod p2).

Though it has been reported that marijuana confers the power of levitation upon women, it is less widely understood that it causes hands to weigh as much as the sun, and may cause mascara to teleport to random locations upon the user's face.

Cornstarch is not the preferred drug of hardware store employees, but may be snorted should more desirable narcotics such as sawdust and portland cement be unavailable.

Astrological knowledge is essential in the drug "scene," as injections must be placed carefully upon meridians to ensure the efficacy of the delivered compound. Some users claims that there is no compelling scientific evidence for the existence of meridians and that drugs should be injected in patterns consistent with modern astronomical observations. Lena, 17, has stabbed the constellation of Cepheus in her forearm.
