Quoted from Aurich:
Genius. I'm already thinking of how I could make that. Joint is easy, it's getting the cherry to glow right that would be the work.
Spent an hour looking for my 1979 high school yearbook. Our service club was permitted to make and enter a float for the half-time parade at homecoming football game. Since we were playing against the Indians, our float was painted "Toke the Injuns" across all four sides. The design consisted of a ten foot doobie made of paper mache, that was tilted up on one end, painted glowing red and had a source of smoke. The amount of smoke was adjustable by the guy standing at the other end (along with some hot chicks) all dressed in indian garb. He stood on a step at the other end of platform with his mouth near the opening as if he were inhaling.
Oh and the way we were able to pull off our slogan on the float was that we initially painted it to read "Smoke" instead of "Toke" and "Indians" instead of Injuns (which was considered racist by some and poor sportsmanship by others). Right before taking the field, we painted over it. So with paint still dripping, the float was on its way.
This guy was crazy and loved to smoke weed, so as he entered the oval track, he cranked the smoke to high and kept it there for the entire lap around field. I need to preface this by saying that night was damp and there was an unusual fog hanging over the field all game. We were warned by Administration to go easy on the smoke.....hehe. As the float left the track and pulled away from the stadium, there was nothing to see but a thick, thick fog. Took about twenty minutes to clear the air. Sorry no pics but this stood out in my memories.
