FACT: The excerpt from Neal Pollack’s new book in last week’s Stranger—about becoming a responsible pot-smoking father by buying a vaporizer called the Silver Surfer—has apparently created a run on Silver Surfers. Today I got a letter from Tina, the sister of the Silver Surfer’s creator.

We have got tons of orders from the Seattle area and one customer said it was probably because of this article. First, I want to thank you all for publishing the article but would also like contact info for Neal Pollack as I want to especially thank him as well…

Well, you’re welcome Tina. Least we could do. If you’d like to send along a Silver Surfer to the office, our address is 1535 11th Avenue, 3rd Floor, Seattle, 98122.

[This has been a Neal Pollack Fact of the Day! The last NPFOTD will appear tomorrow, since tomorrow night is Pollack’s event with Dan Savage, Sean Nelson, and “Awesome” at Chop Suey. 7 pm doors. 8 pm show. Trumpets! Drums! Booze! Singing and talking! A communal bong! And best of all: no cover!]

It's arguable that the Silver Surfer is, as Pollack put it, "top of the line". Many would give that honor to the Volcano vaporizer. Anyone who'd like to try before buying but doesn't know anyone who has a Volcano should stop at the BC Marijuana Party headquarters in Vancouver, BC (on Hastings between the New Amsterdam Cafe and the space where Blunt Brothers used to be). They keep one on the counter there and loaded it up for me to try a couple years ago when I was in on a a day that they were not overcrowded with customers.
