Overheard in My Apartment

ďThatís probably the best game I ever invented: itís called Give a Bum a Nug

RSS icon Comments


Reminds me of my game on the ferry called "Find the Dead Guy". Basically, the object of the game is to differentiate the sleeping drivers from...well...dead guys.

Someone please give me a fat green nug.

With a knick-knack, paddy-whack?

Posted by Christin | October 21, 2008 9:51 PM

Man, if I had a nug, I'd share it with ya. It's like this town went dry all of a sudden ...

does this game involve your bum, lindy? or someone else's?

The line between a "bum" an a typical member of the Seattle Stoner Hip Crowd are increasingly less drawn, now that Daddy's 401k can't support the 1-bedroom in Belltown.

not as fun as 'give a hobo a handjob'.

@4, yeah, really - the past few months. why isn't the stranger covering seattle's urgent weed shortage?

Posted by jrrrl | October 21, 2008 10:51 PM

That's sweet. Bums appreciate every toke.
There's a shortage? Really? You guys know the wrong people!

how is that a game?

I know all the right people where I grew up and even they couldn't always come through in the dry season. That's why you collect numbers, network, and keep an emergency stash, dude.

Nothing dry here either...but then again, I am a "right person"

Is this some Seattle slang? I'm in NYC and have never heard that term before. Albeit, I haven't been a smoker for a while, I'm certainly around my share of them.

I honestly thought that you meant a noogie and I was wondering why you'd want to assault bums with your knuckles in their greasy, unwashed hair. Sounded gross to me!

It's true... you can never go home...

@13: "Nug" is short for "nugget".

Posted by Sean | October 22, 2008 7:46 AM


The crowd you are referring to is urban hispsters. In the main, they're not stoners. The stoner crowd sorta went out of fashion in the early 80s when that good kind of coke came in, btw, not crack but powder. Yuppies who live in urban condos don't smoke much pot. And they aren't mostly kids supported by their parents. There would be more kids supported by their parents smoking pot in CapitolHill or Perugia, Italy, I think, and they are quite a bit younger than the condo dwellers of whom you speak.

Also and again, dontcha know doggone it it might be viewed by the media elitsts as "grammatically incorrect" and a sign you are a dumb yookel for you to write a sentence with a singular subject and a plural verb.

Also and again, doggone it, your dearth of substance and resort to generalized, yet mistaken, ad hominem attacks is noted.

Your pal for palin' around to create socialism,

Yeah, y'all must know the wrong people, because the indoor grow ops work all year round.

Not a Seattle thing, I've heard it from hippies all over the country.

If you guys think the town is dry, you need to diversify your contacts. I'm just fine if I go across the lake.

Posted by bellevue has weed as well | October 22, 2008 8:03 AM

i'd buy a bum lunch WAY before i'd give them a nug.

Posted by max solomon | October 22, 2008 9:18 AM

@15, you appear to be completely full of shit. Those urban-dwelling Belltown hipsters may be doing a little powder on occasion, but they also (usually) have some fine-ass weed. I should know...

Posted by lily | October 22, 2008 9:20 AM

I don't smoke weed, so I could give a shit about this apparent dry spell.

Posted by Greg | October 22, 2008 10:46 AM

the game seemed way funnier when i thought that by 'nug' lindy was talking about a noogie.
