Toadaly posted: "Each can of fresh air is created through a process that uses lead, mercury, and arsenic to directly extract the fresh air from strip mined coal."
Mike posted: I hope they're not importing the air from Washington, DC.

J posted: I bought an earthquake in a can once, in San Diego, when I was twelve. You can't inhale it, though. Oh! I also saw some genuine bottled woman's farts for sale on eBay years ago. Dunno if they're still available, but they'd be vintage at this point, surely.
