It’s time to get reacquainted with the tobacco smoke enema

by editor on September 19, 2010

This is a tobacco smoke enema, a medical device used back in the 18th and early 19th centuries to infuse tobacco smoke into a patient’s rectum for various medical purposes, primarily to resuscitate drowning victims.


A rectal tube inserted into the anus was connected to a fumigator and bellows that forced the smoke towards the rectum. The warmth of the smoke was thought to promote respiration, but doubts about the credibility of tobacco smoke enemas lead to the popular phrase “blowing smoke up your ass.”

This old tool has now been reintroduced in Washington, DC as a major component of the new ObamaCare program.

Yeah, That Platters tune sums it up nicely. Funny, I don’t remember Tony Williams using one of those on stage.


Absolute genius! Why wait indeed.

Time marches on.

Just as this was the “science” of that day, now we have the “science” of global warming. Sheesh !!


I think this device would be the perfect piece for ironically executing those guilty of treason if this tea party “revolution” ever lives up to its name. Death by nicotine poisoning can’t be pleasant. And speaking of pleasant and anuses, Barney Frank gets this shoved up his nose. No sense in making his last moments on earth enjoyable.


Aw. You bein’ mean to poor widdle Bawney.


Does the editor know if this device shown was handed down from Al Gore’s tobacco growing ancestors, before the family got guilty and now have to save from the earth? It seems that this is just the device that a ante bellum masseuse might have used gore’s greatgrandfather.

New fundraising concept for the DNC. Tobacco Enema Kits – Only $99.95 while they last

“Why wait for us to blow smoke up your ass on our inconvenient schedules. Now you can blow smoke up your own ass in the convenience of your home whenever you wish. Each kit accompanied by a CD with your favorite Presidential “on the one hand…, but on the other hand” speeches.

But wait! There’s more…

If you order in the next 10 minutes, we’ll include a second CD free which includes the Robert Gibbs, David Axelrod and Valerie Jarrett statements so you can hear smoke being blown up your ass at the same time you physically blow smoke up your own ass. A double dose at no additional charge. Operators are standing by. Make all checks payable to Charlie Rangel.”


They asked me how I knew
My true love was true
Oh, I of course replied
Something here inside cannot be denied

They said someday you’ll find
All who love are blind
Oh, when your heart’s on fire
You must realize
Smoke gets in your ass

So I chaffed them and I gayly laughed
To think they could doubt my love
Yet today my love has flown away
I am without my love

Now laughing friends deride
Tears I can not hide
Oh, so I smile and say
When a lovely flame dies
Smoke gets in your as
Smoke gets in your ass


some of the funniest czit I’ve read right here in IHTM, but this is the first one actually, really got me laughing out loud. Perfect. Yes indeed, Co2, excellent snag.
