Large shipment of Trump ecstasy pills seized in Germany

Saw that in my feed this morning; didn’t click on it.

I dunno about anyone else, but giving drugs names with negative connotations make me less likely to do them, not more so.


#3

Not orange enough, hands aren’t tiny enough, hair weave not implausible enough
(or whatever that dead muskrat is on his head)
please see me after class


#4

Can you take MDMA as a suppository?


#5

If it was ketamine I’d understand!


#6

or hemlock!


#7

Looks like a Flintstones vitamin made by a schlocky 70s horror type artist.


#8

And Angela is found happily playing Farm Simulator? Coincidence? I think not


#9

Maybe that’s the idea. Increasing MDMA usage in the UK during the late 80s and early 90s is correlated with a reduction in football hooliganism.


#10

or a strong laxative mixed with gold glitter!


#11

Sources tell me that these orange pills do not give you a boner.


#12

They got caught because people were spitting them out? That’s what I thought…


#13

Trump’s vibe may be the opposite, but the experience of BEING Trump – the drunken adulation of idiots, the endless conversations that go nowhere, purely mechanical horniness that can never reach a climax – there’s many who would gladly pay for that.


#14

Gets you into a ‘Trump Trance’. Nothing good about that.


#15

I believe that’s a different drug

Funny you should say that. Didn’t I once hear someone say that Trump looked like a Flintstones vitamin made by a schlocky 70s horror type artist?


#17

At least he’s making some people happy, if only for an hour.


#18

Yeah, I’d think just the association would make it more likely to be a bad trip (I believe such things are possible even on ecstasy), not to mention that I’d be more likely to assume the pills were dangerous fakes - orange colored rat poison or something.


#19

Right?

And I totally know people who had bad experiences with ecstasy…


#20

No way I’m putting that in my mouth.
