King Wingbipeekaboo is king!

Doesn't she know you're supposed to take the cans home before you do that kind of thing?

At least she didn't eat three cans of whipped cream. That would be hypocritical.

If I hook up a couple of cans of whipped cream to my car will it make it faster? It's got to be cheaper than gas. This also explains why an banana split makes me smile...

... sniff ... snort ...

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

(Falls down, strikes head on corner of furniture, bleeds, does not know what happened ... what else is new?)

Sorry. Not meant to be funny. Been there. Done that. Puked on the T-shirt ...

This IS the Police! Put down the can of whipped cream!

On a serious note!

...inhaled from three cans of whipped cream containing nitrous oxide, known as laughing gas,... was charged with possession of a restricted substance, criminal mischief and creating a public disturbance.

possession of a restricted substance?
What? Whipped cream cans? In, of all places, a supermarket? I'm looking over my shoulder next time I buy whipped cream!

criminal mischief ???? I'm not even sure these two words go together. criminal: to do something bad, mischief: to annoy or irritate - with whipped cream!?

a public disturbance? Only if someone had payed attention to her unconscience on the floor. Seems IF THEY had ignored her she wouldn't have been charged. THEY'RE FAULT!

And finally. HOW can I get some of those nitrous oxide whipped cream cans? That's what I want to know!

"THEY'RE FAULT!"

You're right, kibby, it is totally they are fault. ;)

And all whipped cream cans have some nitrous oxide bits in them, apparently (just do a quick google search).

Put this is the very short column of evidence that Tom Cruise actually has a valid point about psychology.

Thank you, Brad!

Sorry Vrad, but I think other evidence supports that whipped cream HELPED Brooke Shields.

Oops. Brad (not Vrad)

Just got back from my dentist. He uses whipped cream powered laughing gas on the cheap.

"These are only allegations," said Bob Ludgin, Berzins' lawyer. "My client is innocent unless convicted. I have confidence that there will be no convictions."

As opposed ti :My client is innocent because she didn't do anything." VERY interesting turn of phrase, no? :))

Her next lecture tour will be of the "do as I say, not as I do" variety.

One of my friends in college used to steal his dentist dad's nitrous oxide canisters. We had SUCH fun at his parties.

it IS tacky. kinda like that runner jim whoosis, who died while running. [clears throat]. no it isnt funny at all. teehee. well, just a little.

I don't know why nitrous oxide is a "controlled substance"!

I think they should, just before plane crashes, replace the oxygen with nitrous oxide.

And imagine how it would work in air bags?

OMG! The possibilities are endless.

Cher and Barry M. concerts.

Irish funerals.

CNN repeated news reports.

"Worlds Largest Cheeto" viewings.

Lenin's Mausoleum visits.

Mixed with helium in ballons.

An acquaintance of mine (an adult--not a kid!) died inhaling gas from whipped cream cans. I can't help but suggest that dying that way qualifies for a Darwin Award--the whipped cream nozzle goes in your mouth, not in your nose! Moreover, it's delicious! Wrong orifice, Lisa!

Ah queensbee, you posted my idea.

His name was Jim Fixx and he wrote, "The Complete book of Running". Then dropped while running. It is kinda funny. Laughing at it though is not funny.

I think the word we're searching for here (Jim Fixx, other references) is irony ... which, sometimes, can be cruel ... but still might stimulate an urge to laugh ... sorta like "whistling past the graveyard" ... ???

Kibby, have you already been hittin' the whipped cream? You're cracking me up!

Kibby, have you already been hittin' the whipped cream? You're cracking me up!

what offends me is that she was stealing the stuff that makes the whipped cream whip, obviously intending to leave others who get home with their 'Ready Whip' unable to whip!

Ok, so it's "natural" stuff in the whipped cream cans.

SO, how can she be charge with "possession of a restricted substance"!?

*returns to isle 6*

Gotta figure out the sniffin part. Every time I shove the nozel up my nose, press the button,

FRUUUMP!

....nose fills with whipped cream! Nope, no laughs here!

maybe I shouldn't shake it....

kibby: Hello, 911? Yea, I'd like to report a "controlled substance" deal in progress.

kibby: Where? It's at the local Piggly Wiggly....

kibby: no, no, not in the parking lot. INSIDE!

kibby: ...ah, discribe the offenders? Ok, seems it's a VERY organized effort. ALL the pushers are wearing uniforms and white smocks - can't miss them.

kibby: Oh my Gawd! You gotta get over here quick! I just saw them sell to youngsters!

kibby: Whipped Cream! THAT's what it is! Whipped Cream in the can! ...the horrors......

That's got to be bad for your sinuses.

I can't even figure out how she thought she was going to get away with it.

Beth Crowley - Step away from the keyboard. Anything you type can and will be used against you in a court of bloglits. (We don't need to be badgered about your website three or four times each and every thread.)

I dont think that was really beth...

*shifty eyes*

I wonder if Dave ever reads the comments on his blog...

Whippit good!

gary - sometimes.

If you think your shrink bills are whopping
Your doctor is 'on' dessert topping
Are there stains on her clothes?
Redi-Whip on her nose?
Laughing for hours without stopping?

B Police: Four out of five voices in my head say Beth is laboring under the (erronious)impression that she (he,it) is amusing. We know better but she (they,them) doesn't. She (fe, fi, fo) only knows how to spell her name about 50% of the time so don't count on anything else being remotely accurate.

Can anyone say whippets and balloons???
And not being in public with said accessories?

This is soooo 80's!!!

B. Police and I.H. Dread People: IMO, you need to be careful of Beth. She's mentally unstable. If you p!ss her off, she'll post nasty lies about you on her blog site, along with your e-mail address (if you gave your real one). She's not a nice person like the blogit regulars. That's why, tempting as it is, I've never responded to her until now. Watch your backs!!

"These are only allegations," said Bob Ludgin, Berzins' lawyer.

"I denies the allegation and I resents the allegator."

*imagining Kibby with whipped cream in his nose*

Um, I don't think that's where you're supposed to put it.

Not that I would know of any other uses for whipped cream.

And you're telling us this because?

I want some help make a new blog

maxbethaholewhatever,

what part of go away don't you get?

go: leave, scram, beat it, take a powder, f-off.

away: any. where. else. dry up n die, drop dead, blow this popsicle stand, dig yourself a deep hole and climb on in.

you are banal at best.

misrepresenting yourself as a therapist, patient and all your other personas smacks of legal problems on your horizon. not to mention that you are obviously a sociopath.
consider seeking some real therapy.

bye now is right. Maxbeth (sounds like Shakespeare) is just begging for legal action somewhere. When I said he/she/it was mentally unstable, I meant it, and Max proved my point. Please, Maxbeth, go away. You're sociopathic, narcissistic and you really frighten me.

WEST HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - An expert in eating disorders collapsed in a supermarket after inhaling propellant from whipped cream cans, according to police.


an EXPERT?!
apparently NOT.

I don't usually do this, but I checked the pix ...

the blog photo strongly resembles the photo/artwork of a West Highland White Terrier on a tote bag I saw recently ... in the aspect of the fisheye lens, at least ...

the others make me think it seems like a consortium of two (or more) of those names/pix on the "research" staff ... take your choice on pix ...

-- heebie-jeebies?

Yup.

We're the subject of a "research group" ... and they are watching us ...

also, creepy-crawlies ... clammydamps ... whimwhams ...

heh heh. looks to me like a whole kettle of fish
who could be held responsible.
you idgits do realize that serious boundries have been crossed here?

to bloglits; if you are really whizzed off at this waste of your time, may i suggest that you complain to the proper blog authorities. i am sending hard copies via certified mail to several possible POI.

just sayin' - you've probably realized that I'm a coward. But please tell me - did I do something wrong? And who are the "proper blog authorities"? How soon should I expect the FBI at my door?

not you afraid...
the wrongdoers are the psych dept at brown u if indeed it is they who make up maxbethaholwhatever.
and if not illegal in some way, what they are doing is highly questionable as well as low, dirty, and invasive of our rights.

shame on `em. whoever `em.

proper authorities:
a good start would be the web hosts of their sites, as well as this one.
they are traceable.


if you need more ideas these folks (web hosts)can direct you.

just sayin' - I wonder if Maxbeth is just one staff member, using pieces of the other staff members' lives to create his/her/its blog. If so, I wonder if they should be told. And I don't know if what he/she/it has done is illegal, but I think that posting people's e-mail addresses is rude and inconsiderate, even if they are "public domain (in the HTML code)". It's akin to leasing a billboard and posting someone's address and phone number on there just because you can get it from the phone book.

And seriously, I really am concerned about Maxbeth's mental well being. I hope that he/she/it never hurts themselves, or others. And if this is all some kind of joke, I'm afraid I'm too stupid to see the humor in it.

again, reporting (with evidence...such as printouts of the blogs and comments, there and here) is recommended.

at the very least you can, by complaining, assert your discomfort, anger, etc. and make their proper authorities aware.

if this is the work of one disturbed person, the web hosts will know where and how to have them noticed and evaluated.

i also fail to find any scrap of humor connected to this whole situation.

just sayin' - I wish I was as blog-savvy as you. Please don't think I'm abandoning you to the task alone, but since you know what you're doing I think I'll let you handle this situation. I'll be right here, supporting you, even as I hide under my computer desk. Good luck, my blogit friend.

P.S. I told you I was a coward!! :P

Lisa G. Berzins, a prominent psychologist who has been on national television and radio shows and in newspaper articles, was arrested on a warrant Friday charging her in the May 29 incident, The Hartford Courant reported.

Berzins, 49, has a practice in West Hartford. She has written and lectured on eating disorders, female development, sex roles and self-esteem, according a speaker's biography from the American Psychological Association

uh huh...i find it ironic that the above posts go right along with this particular thread.
coinkydink? i think not.

and i seriously urge all bloglits to at least send an e-note to the web hosts and univ.
there is power in numbers.
come on gang, i can't be the only one here with balls. n'est-ce pas?

n phearful hamster, ;P rightbackatcha.

I just want to say that as one of the people who "Beth" posted an email address for on "her" blog... The offensive part was having my e-mail address associated by "Beth" with a characterization of what I said that was more than twisted and manipulated to look completely vulgar. People actually do search for my e-mail address, and although I usually, readily give it when posting to some blogs, my comments are always in context.

"Beth"'s method of blog spam was annoying, and we all had our fun with it, as I'm sure we'll continue to do with other twits who flog their blogs. As to the content... If Max is taking the lives of people and publicly making fun of them, he may owe them royalties if he gets too successful and the connection is too obvious. The concept is edgy and beyond some people's tastes, but hey, so long as nobody gets hurt (read: DO NOT POST PEOPLE'S NAMES OR E-MAIL ADDRESSES WITH TOTAL MISCHARACTERIZATIONS OF WHAT THEY SAY), it's all good dude.

There's NO Beth Crowley???

Some GUY made her up???

That is really sick.....

Stay away from here, please....

The Motto of DB bloggers is:

Girls (and Guys) Just want to have fun!

I'm thinkin' the word we're searching for here is unethical ...

U.O.

Binga!

I have not commented on this before, but I have been blurking throughout.

I don't understand what the fuss is about. This is the Internet, the closest thing to anarchy we have in this country. What "authority" would we report Max/Beth to? Was anyone hurt? Did any money change hands?

You're complaining because he/she wasted your precious time? You can't blame Max/Beth for that. You wasted your own time.

And it's up to you to protect your own privacy. Get yourself a free e-mail address somewhere and post using that, not your real e-mail. Use a pseudonym if you don't want people who google you to find references to you on questionable blogs.

The alternative to anarchy on the Internet is governmental control of some sort. And whose government would that be? Now that would be a can of worms! Let's stick with anarchy and put up with a few Max/Beth types. Small price to pay, IMO.

if you read the wikipedia sections on psychology and on "meta-ethics" you will find that psychology is considered to be the original meta science.
so this persongroupidiot is suggesting that ideology is a useless sham. it would follow that they/it also don't believe in psychology or their own raison d'etre.

brings us right back to "banal at best"

Banal:
banal \BAY-nul; buh-NALL; buh-NAHL (British)\, adjective:
Commonplace; trivial; hackneyed; trite.

also: Meaning of banal,wretched,problematic,phlegmatic,ignoble,nautical ...Meaning of banal (adjective) trite; without freshness or originality

and noone suggested governmental control. there are other venues.

sandy - the "fuss" is that Maxbeth posted e-mail addresses on his/her/its blog which, as I said, is at the very least rude and inconsiderate. Imagine someone you don't know taking your name, address and phone number and posting it on a billboard in your town. Not illegal, maybe, but definitely downright discourteous. And as Brad pointed out, when a person takes your comments and twists them to mean something other than what you said and then posts your e-mail address with them, that's offensive. Also, Maxbeth repeatedly posted his/her/its blog address on this blog. I've discovered that that's considered spamming, and the blogits take a very dim view of spammers.

As for anarchy: this blog isn't anarchist. Controlled chaos, maybe, but not anarchy. More than once I've seen "rules of blog etiquette" show up in the threads, reminding people of what the majority of blogits consider proper behaviour. As in any culture or society, persons who refuse to abide by the culture's rules (written or unwritten) are made pariah by their own actions. Maxbeth made himself/herself/itself pariah by his/her/its outrageous behaviour, and the blogit faithful then had to "waste their time" trying to first correct Maxbeth's behaviour, and when that didn't work, trying to get Maxbeth to leave. We don't need government interference regulating us here: the blogits tend to police themselves. But in this case, Maxbeth continued his/her/its unacceptable behaviour, and in an attempt to make Maxbeth stop, the blogits are (for lack of a better term) fighting back. We are allowed to defend ourselves.

I've found the blogits here to be very nice people. I've learned alot from them and gotten lots of laughs from them. Maxbeth may not have hurt anyone physically, but he/she/it crossed some boundaries, and in doing so upset alot of people. Posting e-mail addresses with falsified comments could have caused problems for the persons Maxbeth flamed. That's what scares me about Maxbeth, and putting up with him/her/it is TOO big a price to pay. IMO.

I apologize for the length of this post. I've probably broken a few blog etiquette rules myself. I hope you can all forgive me.

Hey, don't be afraid of me! I didn't do nuthin! Actually, that makes me giggle--not even my dog is scared of me!

I merely suggested that people might want to protect themselves by not using their real names and e-mail addresses to post on a public blog that the entire world has access to.

About the only thing that bloglits have in common is that most of us think Dave Barry is a funny guy. That leaves a lot of room for creeps and weirdos. So we get lots of spam and the occasional a$$hole. You just waste your own time trying to make them leave. In fact, they have as much right to be here as you do. Just skip over their posts if you don't like them. Usually ignoring people is the best way to make them go away. :-)

Dear DB Bloggers,
You are not helping me by continuously posting about “Beth”. This (DB) was a comedy blog which now turned into a legal / ethical debate. I enjoy the notion of taking legal action against MaxBeth also find it hypocritical of some to be slandering members of Brown University who had nothing to do with my blog. (Posting links to their bios / pictures. shame on you – but I really don’t care) I find the name “Maxbeth” very funny and I might use it in the future.

Sure there was static from my first post - but I stopped.
If you read back to my harmless post on July 15th
“My son tricked my daughter into doing the same thing with a midget propane bottle. She got very sick.”
Then someone (not me, but funny) posted
“My son tricked my daughter into inhaling his farts while he lit them on fire. She burnt her lungs and required a respirator for several weeks.”
I didn’t write back “blah blah, legal action, stolen identity, blah” I rolled with it…
“My son was punished because he is not allowed to play with my lighter”

To Brad: You have to be a software guy – who uses his real/primary e-mail address for posting. That is the MAIN reason why I took it down from my blog. Your credibility could be at stake…but you did post about penis (so who is really to blame)
To Sandy beach: You have a good solution, just ignore it…(and thanks for the type cast)
To anyone who said it was “fake”: You are the people that magicians hate…yet you still keep going to the show?

The point of my blog was to cause emotion (I wanted it to be funny). But if I made you laugh, upset, puzzled, or angry; if I made you do research or look up definitions of common words; if I made you think – then I did my job.

BTW…and like that she’s gone!

Sincerely

-Maxbeth

My goodness this is a long thread for an article about shoplifting...

I was all ready to post an angry response to Maxbeth's latest post, but then I figured why bother. Maxbeth isn't going to change his/her/its ways, no matter what I say, and I don't want to play his/her/its games anymore. Oh, and I checked "Marion's" latest post on Maxbeth's blogsite, and found it downright ghoulish. Death is never funny, especially when people lose their lives in such a tragic way. Right now I feel very sad for you, Maxbeth. I pity you very much, and I really, sincerely mean that.

*cheshire cat grin*

*sprays whipped cream on everybody* ;D

chickenlittle you just did post an angry response? ;) Plus you went back to his/her/its crappy blog...Why? You are falling for her trap over and over and over...oh and over. Sure it was dark/twisted but STOP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 4 dogs sake

Beth's dead baby beth's dead....
Hook me up with a can of whip-it and whip it good... HUnTd

I'm sorry, Hunter. You're right, I over reacted. I promise to try and restrain myself. Unless, of course, just sayin' sprays me with more whipped cream, in which case I just may be overcome with nitrous oxide fumes and thus become uncontrollably giddy.

BTW - just sayin' - I prefer chocolate. :D

me too. *snork*

Maxbeth-- OK, I hope you saw above that I'm not wanting to take legal action, and for what it's worth, I'll take credit for the post about your son tricking your daughter into sniffing his farts. Yeah, it's sometimes funny to post comments from other people (fake people and celebs only tho) on this blog. I even think your site is kinda funny, but a little edgy for most people's tastes. I wholeheartedly agree with your point about tight asses who ruin magician's tricks.

BUT... big, fat, hairy, BUT.... With the "penis" post, you said I couldn't stop thinking of Beth's vagina, which was a way over the top misinterpretation AND you posted my e-mail address with it. Given the reaction you are getting to your little site, a reasonable (unfunny) person searching for my e-mail address might stumble upon that and think that I get off sexually harassing forty-something soccer mom's with serious emotional problems. They don't have the context of seeing exactly what I said. And that's the *slight* transgression. If you'd have posted my comment first, then blown it out of proportion, that would be OK in my book, because it would be clear that either you're joking or you're the nutcase.

When you removed my e-mail address, I was cool with it. Small party foul -- you drank your extra shot and we're moving on. It's funny. OK? I really don't have a stick up my butt even though I always seem to be sweeping up behind me.

Regards,

Brad
