Internet media mogul Grant Miller recently posted a helpful tip for boozehounds trying to beat the heat. Mr. Miller suggested that huffing might be a better option:
Avoid drinking alcohol when temperatures get hot since the heat makes you sweat and quickly lose your buzz. Grant Miller Media recommends huffing an old t-shirt drenched in gasoline or paint thinner instead.Provocative? Irresponsible? Well, the boldest ideas often seem that way. But, here's the thing. Mr. Miller isn't far out of the mainstream on this. He is merely putting into words generations of trailer park folk wisdom. Which, in this writer's humble opinion, is long overdue.
Consider Patrick Tribett, arrested in July 2005 for huffing spray paint. Buckeyes know how to beat the heat. Tribett, the interweb's most famous huffer, is pictured above.
It gets damnably hot in Waco, Texas. That's why R&B personality Tony Thompson liked huffing freon instead of swilling Lone Star beer. Unfortunately, it killed him.
Don't drink and drive. Huff and drive. It gets so steamy in Palm Bay, Florida, that 18 year old Tara Corey had no other choice.
My extensive research failed to uncover any links between huffing and exotic reptile ownership, and as of this time there does not appear to be any huffing/alligator nexus. Which is a relief.
