back to article Texas graverobbers 'used skull to smoke dope'

Houston Police Department is investigating a teenager's claim that he and two accomplices desecrated the grave of an 11-year-old boy, severed his skull, and subsequently used it as a bong to smoke marijuana, the Houston Chronicle reports. Kevin Wade Jones Jr, 17, of Kingwood, made the shock confession when being quizzed by …

    That's really not fair!

    "He regurgitated in his plate of food when I asked him about it. So I knew there was some truth to the story."

    Hardly. I think anyone would puke if told a story like that while eating their lunch. But I struggle to understand why anyone would 'fess up to something as awful as that without confrontation. It's like boasting you gave oral sex to your granny. And I would never do that.

    Never do what, give oral to your granny or admit to it?

    holes in the story?

    Aren't there loads of little holes in a skull that would prevent its use as a bong unless they were blocked up.

    "In his plate of food"? being just a bit pedantic, wouldn't one throw up in a bowl but on a plate? Yes, S.D. - you wonder how the story was retold to the teenager.

    Oh and S.D. you'd make your gran pay for oral?

    Mine's the one with the baby's thigh-bone chillum in the pocket.

    @Sordid Details.

    A lot depends on how the police phrased it...

    But even if they gave all the details I doubt I'd puke over that, even when I was younger than them.

    How about "Son, we've heard a story about you that involves smoking pot from a rather unusual item - and not really a nice one. Any comment?" - then if he pukes, it's a pretty good chance that he's guilty...

    ... you've got some air leak down there, see, you gotta put some gum on there or somethin, it gotta be tight, man, tight...

    Don't believe it

    This is a Denis Leary joke:

    "Remember that friend in high school wanted to make bongs out of everything. Making bongs out of apples and oranges and shit? Come in one day and find your friend going, Hey! Look man, I made a bong outta my head! Put the pot in this ear and take it outta this one! Good! Take a hit! Then they got one of those big giant bongs that you gotta start up like a motorcycle. Put the pot in! Kids are driving their bongs down FDR Drive. Pull the bong over man, I wanna do a hit. Pull it over!

    What was the problem with just smoking a joint, eating a couple of Twinkies, and going to sleep? Was that a problem? They say marijuana leads to other drugs. No it doesn't, it leads to fucking carpentry. That's the problem, folks. People getting high going, Wow man, this box would make an excellent bong! This guy's head would make an excellent bong!"

    Donor Card

    Can I have a donor card that allows folks to use bits of my body for abusing(sic) drugs in the event of my death?

    Being Scottish my liver's pretty much fucked anyway and after seeing The Eye with Jessica Alba I gouged my eyes out of their sockets so they would never have to see such regurgitated drivel ever again, so they're no use.

    To all the druggies that read the reg; feel free to use my skull as a bong, my jaws as a weed grinder, snort through my fingers, cook up in my knee caps, use my former arms as pipes and give blowbacks through my ex-legs . i also make a handy fertiliser for psilocybin production. Help yourselves!

    To the cannabis supporters

    Now you can't claim that cannabis is an innocent drug. Would these kids have desecrated a grave if they didn't want a bong to smoke their pot?

    I think not.

    Only in the USA...

    Not here of course, well, maybe when dope was only a class C drug. Nobody would dare do anything like that now it's class B.

    AHH COME ON MAN... these kids are obviously mental difficients (who shouldnt moke weed anyway) - the fact that there are ~3M weed smokers in the uk and the vast majority of us dont dig up graves to make bongs :)

    this is just idiots blaming drugs again... like people blame alcohol

    Hmm ..... isn't Texas one of the states where "paraphernalia" -- bongs, chillums and even king-size Rizla papers -- is banned, thus forcing people to be creative in choosing substitute articles?

    Good job there are no pictures on this site, 'cos they'd probably constitute some kind of "extreme pr0n" and be illegal.

    @drug use in general.

    Its simple darwinism, hard drugs kill people stupid enough to abuse them, hence legalise the lot and in 6 months the problem will go away, and remove all bans and tax on smoking+alcohol too, the world will sort itself out.

    half baked

    Thurgood Jenkins: The MacGyver smoker is a very handy guy to have around, especially when it comes to reefer.

    McGayver Friend: Hey, man, we're out of papers.

    McGayver Smoker: All right. Then get me a toilet paper roll, a corkscrew and some tin foil.

    McGayver Friend: We don't have a corkscrew.

    McGayver Smoker: All right. Then get me an avocado, an ice pick and my snorkel.

    McGayver Smoker: [Friend looks at him funny] Trust me, bro. I've made bongs with less. Hurry up!

    *Thank God* that those kids weren't playing Grand Theft Auto or they might have gone out and done something done something despicable!

    if cannabis was legalised, they wouldn't have had to desecrate a grave to make a bong. They would have been able to buy their skull-bongs from a reputable business instead.
