Nearly Instant Laxative


I bought a little coffee press and brought it to work. After making my first cup of pressed coffee, I sat with the warm mug in both hands inhaling the beautiful aroma of strong, fresh coffee. I looked into the mug and saw floating grounds.

It reminded me of my camping experiences using the little screw-pot espresso maker. Floating grounds mean strong coffee and that means whoever drinks the coffee will be in the restroom in less than 10 minutes or in the case of camping, searching for the toilet paper and a shovel.

When discussed as camping gear, TP must be referred to as "Mountain Money."

I always liked "shit tickets".

I always liked "bumfodder"

regarding coffee, I only need my skin to come in contact with fresh grounds and I'm off and running

I love to learn new euphemisms, especially poop-related ones. The first time I heard someone refer to a deuce, I laughed for a long time.

I'm drinking a pressed coffee right now.

"Toilet Paper" is itself a euphemism because it politely dances around the real purpose of the stuff. I guess it would be harder to sell "dirty cornhole tissue" to the more discerning clientele.

Corn hole is also a euphemism.

Why is one hole called a corn hole and the other is a pie hole or cake hole?

Corn cobs used to be used as butt wipe! Mr. Whipple hasn't always been around...

A guy I worked with used the initials B.W. to describe it. B.W. stands for Butt Wipe in his world. This was South Dakota, naturally.

When I was a kid, we had a cat named BW, but it stood for Booger's Wench. She was the stray that my sister's cat (Booger) found in his travels.

"I am cornholio! Give me TP for my bunghole!"

May you continue on your journey to oneness with the coffee of the press. It takes years to develope "the resistance".

May your coffee be always luke warm and your chips always be crisp.

Tim: I'm disappointed in that corn hole site. I thought it would be funny in some really sick way. But, no! They're serious.

I spent the first five minutes on the cornhole site thinking it was some kind of satire. It took me awhile to figure out that cornhole is for real.

I'm impressed with the large number of comments this post has generated.

Thank you for "shit tickets"! That is HILARIOUS. I cannot wait to break that one out on the next camping trip.
