You know when you walk into a 7-11 to grab a Cherry-Coke Slurpee and some nachos and you over hear some dudes are holding up a magazine letting out a really loud “whoa…look at those”? Well, we bet the first thing you’d think to yourself is, “self…just don’t pay attention to those 2 perverts salivating over some naked boobies,” right?
C’mon now ya’ll, don’t jump to such conclusions. This is 7-11 were talking about, ya know, not some porno shop. Sure 7-11’s got some boobies mags and shit, but those are usually kept behind the counter or all wrapped up in plastic or stuck in between the pages of BXM Action. Now, if you are a regular reader of this here column…and, if you were in such a situation…you’d quickly find yourself disarmed as you realize that you are overhearing two stoners drool over photos of buds.
Yep, to stoners, buds are the new boobs. And nowadays the centerfold of choice is a 2-page spread of delicious Purple Cush in the center of High Times magazine. Yeah, the days of oggling boobies printed on magazine pages are over, man, well that is, unless you are older than 11. Yep, there’s something special about admiring buds…you get mesmerized…kinda like what advertisers are hoping will happen when they paste up big-ass shots of juicy hamburgers on billboards.
If Fast Times at Ridgemont High was filmed today, Spiccoli’s room would be covered in photos of buds, not centerfolds torn form the pages of Penthouse.
