    I was really hoping for a section of the board labeled "BAT COUNTRY"

    This reminds me of a Yankee Swap gift from years ago. The guy had taken a Jelly Belly box and filled the wells with various pharmaceuticals. It included a guide to what was what, much as an actual box of Jelly Belly jelly beans would have an index.

    Except, these were actual drugs. I don't recall whether there were street drugs along with the Viagra, Prozac, and Valium, but there were at least 20 different wells in the box.

    It was a popular gift.

      In college, one of my friends gave another a pack of cigarettes for a birthday gift. Some shrugging and "huh" and so forth.

      Later, she opened the pack, and discovered he'd unsealed the plastic wrapper, opened the bottom of the pack, removed all the cigarettes, rolled twenty joints, placed them in the pack, and sealed the whole lot back up again.

        Potheads are strangely good at that sort of thing. I went to college out East, and a Californian friend one day got a care package from a friend via USPS. It contained a jar of peanut butter, a bag of Reeses Pieces, and at least one other peanut-butter-themed comestible.

        She knew full well from the peanut theme that the package contained weed, but it took her quite a while to figure out that the weed was in the sealed Reeses packet. Her friend had slit it with a fresh razor blade, put the weed in, and spliced it back together perfectly with a piece of tape on the inside. She didn't notice the cut until she opened the pack the old-fashioned way.

          For the kids in the audience: getting busted on that kind of thing, especially if the sender and recipient are in different states -- not recommended as a casual game. Federal charges and whatnot. Real nasty stuff if someone decides to bust you. Consider your risk/reward ratio carefully and, sure, don't hesitate to be politically active re legalization.

          This has been a PSA from PHA (potheads of america).
