Halitosis Capsule

The rest of the party is increasingly bacchic, but you have been buttonholed by an earnest, dull - and quite probably amorous - fellow partygoer possessed of positively Ancient Marine tenacity.

Bite down on your fake tooth Halitosis Capsule, thus releasing a noxic cloud reminiscent of cess and rotting flesh. Your suitor/ suitrix will blench, make their excuses, and move on - never to return. Love will die. A quick trip to the convenience, a quick gargle with mouthwash, and back to Bacchus.

       An excuse is probably easier, as in "Romy & Michelle's High School Reunion": "Sorrry, I cut my foot before I came in and my shoe's filling up with blood".

       For the really tenacious, in addition to the mouth and shoe capsules, maybe also one for the underarm and one for between the cheeks.

       I think we need these fumes to be actually *green.*   

       [Who's going to post that idea, then? Sobranie cigarettorators, gaffs with colored guffs?]

       He's 28 in 2 weeks, bliss, and not online right now. I jammed the HB into the spokes of his careerwheels by forwarding him highlights, heh heh. I feel like the anthrax mailer. He'll be hooked any day...

       Sounds a bit like Duke Leto's poison gas tooth in "Dune" .....   

       What's wrong with a can of pepper spray ?

bristolz, Sep 26 2002
  

       "Blench" is like "blanch", but "cess" means luck (Irish) or rate.
FarmerJohn, Sep 26 2002
  

       [GW] Apologies, but then - as well you know - plagiarism wasn't my idea...   

       [8th] Pepper spray? I'm not sure I want to go to any of your parties.   

       [bliss] <blushes and looks at shoes> Thank you for your kind words </blushes and looks at shoes>.

       <wonders why someone would scald themselves upon contact with a capsule halitosis user but realizes there are better uses for her time than to wonder about things like this>

       = "recoil in horror" (which is what you would do if you were covered in boiling water)

       What's wrong with the old "Burp and Fart" technique? Usually works, and it's free....

       thcgenius: You're from West Virginia, up in the hills, am I right ? Figures.

       [FarmerJohn] So does that mean a cess-pit is a pool of luck or does that derivation stem from cess(~tax)?   

       [whimsickle]...So what do you do if you have halitosis anyway and some excitingly beautiful individual steps towards you?....Howsabout the fake tooth love-scented sweetie?

       8th: I didn't say it was *my* technique. We do it Detroit style over here.
Mr Burns, Sep 27 2002
  

       jumblebox: Neither, derives from cesspool:
"Perhaps alteration (influenced by pool1), of obsolete cesperalle, drainpipe from Middle English suspiral, vent, from Old French sospirail, breathing hole, from souspirer, to breathe, from Latin susprre, to sigh."
