Why are people here so anti Smudge Pot?

I mean if it's not totally obvious:

1. Smudge pots are first of all very ugly and dirty vessels and no person with a normal concern for hygene would even consider touching one.

2. Smudge pots almost always burn something which is an act of destruction in itself but it almost always stinks and nobody wants one around.

3. Smudge pots are occasionally usefull but nobody wants to admit it.

4. Smudge pots seem like they make no effort to like you but rather are unpleasant inputs into your normally scheduled wonderful life.

5. It might even be said that if you have a smudge pot or even like them, there's something suspect about you and we shall look at you askance.

NOW DO YOU KNOW WHAT ASKANCE IS OR DO I NEED TO EXPLAIN THAT TO YOUR DEAF AND DUMB AND INSENSATE AND BRUTAL POST NEOLITHIC AZZES or have I made my point?

You have the option to neg me, shut up or elaborate on what I have already predetermined is a lame and self defensive response.

I use them amoung my apple trees....

to help drive away the frost.

If a had a dollar....

If I had a dollar for every time I stated, "I just loves me some Smudge Pot";
I'd have about twenty bucks! And I would convert that $20 into an ounce of silver.

Smudge, you can crash on my couch anytime.
I don't care about the smell!!!

this post-neolithite has always been pro-smudge pot

Is this your "how I chose my username" post?

I have a large, beautiful shell I smudge with

and it smells of sweet grass and sage so I have no idea what you are talking about, or why you are disparaging Smudge Pots like you do.

There is nothing strange about having a bar of soap in your right pocket, it's just what's happening.

Why does Smudge Pot care?

BTW..is this multiple choice? :)

Smudge Pots,,,

A smudge pot does smoke and stink like fuel oil.
They are small round, and have a short wick.
Their use is marginal, except when you need one.

“TIKI Torch” on the other hand would be a better item to contemplate.

It smells better, it is enlightening and it keeps pesky critters away.

NOSHEEPLE

Short wick

Now that is funny.

no

it wasn't

it's not the length of the wick

it's the brightness of the flame :)

Haha! Sure....

That's what all the short wicks say!!!

But really, that was clever!

Aoo'

Yá'át'ééh shik'is! (Hello brother/friend like a brother)

If it makes a difference,
I just checked the wick on my Tiki Torch...

Short, limp, dried up and burned out already.
Damn. That was a quick wick!

I just Loves me some Smudge Pot!

I know why...

It's the Schmendrick glasses you keep wearing!

Get yourself some cooool shades, and then watch your meteoric rise to fame and glory surround you with b-e-a-utiful bitches and sycophants galore.

That is what you are looking for here at DP, right?

You deserve it, dude.

Rights are like muscles; you must exercise them to keep them fit, or they will atrophy and die.

just because i got eye glasses

now he calls me this.

I'm like what's a Schmendrick and he's like "you dude look it up"

I am not the first or the last Smudge Pot but I am somewhat sure I am the first Schmendrick. For whatever highly dubious honor that's worth.

If he called me Lord Schmedrick I don't know if that would ennoble me or just make me feel more silly than I do already.

I can't speak for

anyone else, but I love you Smudgepot! And I'm quite sure that there are many around here who already think there is something suspect about me, so I might as well confirm it. The DP wouldn't be quite the same without you around, and really it's the man that makes the name and not the name that makes the man! :-)

And once you get over your righteous indignation at being

so accused...

like...so...anybody down for maugaritas cause i just got this new blender and...

what?
