Legal Things Everyone Can Do To Celebrate 4/20
4/20 is everybody’s favorite counterculture holiday! College campuses all over the country, from Boulder to Berkeley, celebrate by peacefully breaking the law in massive wake-and-bake sit ins. It’s a nationwide extrava-ganga. But hey, smoking weed is illegal… so you might think you have to sit this one out. I say just say no to not participating! After all, you don’t have to be Irish to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day! There are lots of ways to celebrate 4/20 without smoking stuff that makes everything funny (so I’ve heard). Here’s a few.
Just sit around your house and see the wonder in the everyday objects surrounding you! Say a word over and over again until it loses all meaning. Pets are great entertainment as you lie in a slump. You can laugh your a** off as your cat does that weird clicking sound when it sees a bird outside. Or try pretending you can hear your dog’s interior monologue. But be careful! Sometimes dogs daydream about eating poop!
Go To Taco Bell
Stoners love Taco Bell. And Taco Bell apparently loves them back! How else to you explain the launch of the Doritos Locos Tacos? All of the regular Taco Bell deliciousness in a taco shell made of Nacho Cheese Doritos! Now that’s how you use your R & D budget! I haven’t wanted anything this bad since the maple-glazed bacon doughnut!
Spend Hours Creating Something Useless
Stoners love to waste time doing something that seems amazing when they are high. Try gathering every pillow and couch cushion in your house and make the mother of all forts! Or create a stormtrooper costume using only Wonder Bread. Don’t forget to take pictures! The internet loves this kind of sh*t!
Pretend You Have The Munchies!
Just make do with what you have on hand…get the creativity of someone with that desperate need to eat large quantities of crazy! Try frozen orange juice straight from the container. Dip mozzarella cheese sticks into packs of Swiss Miss Cocoa. Or make a bacon and Cool Whip sandwich! Whatever you do, stay away from cold hot dogs…they’re really hard to get out when you barf later in the day from eating so much crap.
Play Super Smash Brothers Brawl
Not just for an hour or so…I’m talking all day long. Stock up on all your supplies before you settle in. To get the full effect, have your mom come in at some point and tell you that you have two weeks to either get a job or sign up for community college or she’s kicking your ass to the curb.
Do Something Freaky
Toking up isn’t the only way to get your friends to say “Dude! WTF I’m like tripping out.” Try surprising them in the hot tub in your furry outfit. Just stay away from the guy who pops an underwater tent.
Watch Pineapple Express
Just like you must watch A Christmas Story during the holidays, Pineapple Express is required viewing on 4/20. It’s like a bag of weed had a baby with a box of Nerds and that baby was high-larious. That probably doesn’t make sense if you haven’t seen it yet. But it is rated R…so if you’re under 18 I recommend watching Teletubbies.
Be Nice To A Hippie
Listening to him go on and on about The Grateful Dead and industrial hemp will all be worth it when you accidentally get that contact high. The only time it’s ever good to be an innocent bystander.
