Vomdom

Keeps you from upchucking onto the floor

If you feel sick but you don't know whether you're going to throw up, just put on a Vomdom.

Resembling an oversized condom, the Vomdom straps around your neck and covers your mouth. But the center is limp, so it readily expands to hold any amount of vomit you produce. Best of all, none of it gets on the floor or on the sides of the toilet.

Also great to use on drunk people.

       How is holding a latex bag of vomit an improvement on the standard airplane paper bag?
DrCurry, Nov 05 2003
  

       Cause you have to hold the airplane bag with both hands. But what if your hands are busy and you throw up?   

       Or what if your guest is drunk and lying in your bed, and may throw up overnight? Better get a vomdom on him!

       The vomdom is good for all sorts of things! I'll take three. Quickly.

       I think the suffocating effects of the vomdom would outweigh the benefits of cleanliness.

       That happened to me a while dack, [phundug], and some thoughtful friends threw a few towels next to my bed ... I ended up stepping in last night's dinner, and the contents of my stomach from when I tossed it during the night on the way to the bathroom the next morning -- the next week, I passed out in the bathtub of someone's house that we were partying at with puke on me ... thats a much better solution if someone is a vomit-while-passed-out risk ... still don't know if it was mine or not ... :/   

       I would think there's a suffocation risk if the subject passes out, or the vomit is held arround the mouth/nose area whit this device

       This isn't meant to cover your nose, just your mouth.   

       Yes, I know it sometimes comes out your nose too, but I'm trying to avoid another lawsuit.

       Reduces the vomit on the floor. +
Might kill people. -
I know some of the people this would kill. +
End result...It's mostly good.

       [sartep] makes a good point.

       Hmmm - somehow I think my more mischievous friends would find it extremely amusing to run up to somebody who had just filled their Vomdom and squeeze it, forcing the content back towards its creator. Eeeeew! Please add a one-way valve or similar to the design and you'll have my +

       if i had a sack of vomit strapped to my head, i'd vomit again.
HalfwayHebrew, Nov 06 2003
  

       The vomdom must be long - very long. The vomit (or whatever else comes out) will pool in the very end. It might be hard to drink more while wearing the vomdom - a valve might need to be incorpoated. This valve would also be useful if someone else needed to share your vomdom.

       Why would a drunk person be better off (or tidier) with a large latex appendage? They wouldn't. They would just drag it around your flat (or home) until it popped on a catus or got stepped on.

       The name - the name is excellent. I knew *exactly* what this idea would be as soon as I read the two syllables. So croissant for the neologism but fishbone for reliance on the impossible ideal of a unitary vomit collection/disposal system. Fishcake.

       [letsbuildafort] So when you woke up in the bathtub with vomit on you, was that your vomit, or was it a mystery?
