Everyone knows the great zing you can get from gnawing a ball of aluminum foil. Now get that feeling at any time with the BUNGCO Aluminum Tongue Stud! Precisely regulate the amount of zing and zang you need by tapping your various fillings with this fine anodyzed stud, ornamented with 13 tiny raised lightning bolts.

For the true conniseur, BUNGCO offers the Glowglob attachment, This little ball attaches in lieu of the Aluminum Tongue Stud ball, but using the same base. Now when you tap your filling, you complete a circuit between aluminum base and filling - and the current lights up the Glowglob with red, blue or green lights! An irresistable anglerfishlike lure to a date in a dark room! Order yours today!

       Ow.   

       Strikes me as enjoyable as the MAD magazine I saw that had tinfoil as toilet paper beside an electric chair.

       That is just too sick. I just can't wipe this grin off my face. It feels like maybe my jaw may be stuck in this position for about a week or so. I guess it's Saag through a straw for me for a while.

       Saliva pooled in my mouth as I read your idea, but not in a good way. I'm still trying to recover. ***twitch***

       isn't aluminium related to... oh I forget!

       Strikes me the HB doesn't like piercing generally... look at the ideas list!

       [po]: Yes!

       Aren't anodized aluminum studs available already?
Freefall, Aug 11 2004
  

       yes they are.   

       now what about candy covered magnesium tongue studs. goth heaven to goth hell in two sucks.   

       that sentence is giving me severe de ja vu.

       I hate to spit on the parade, but anodized aluminum is not electrically conductive. Titanium might work.

       Another excellent torture device...now to replace someone's tongue ring while sleeping.....
destructionism, Aug 11 2004
  

       I figured the types who think a tongue piercing is good fun might also enjoy the aluminum on filling feeling.   

       Anodyzed aluminum wont work?
bungston, Aug 11 2004
  

       Anodising acts as insulation, but the coating is thin and can be abraded.
normzone, Aug 11 2004
  

       That's quite debatable. Well, at least other people debate about it. I haven't the slightest idea whether it is or isn't.

       almost everything i've experienced from BUNGCO has had something to do with your body or another human. Basically, even Microsoft has a better idea of how to screw people's lives up. Point is, you've got to stop trying to infect us with something gross and offensive.

       I have steel rods drilled into my skull (teeth implants) one day the back of one of my teeth fell off exposing the screw. This has had odd side effects. I was eating a fajita pita from Jack-N-the-Box when I noticed it was about to rain. The pita was terrible. I saw the reflection of lighting in my car window. I look at the sky, no rain. I went to take a bite and it happened again. I looked around and my assistant who was sitting in the seat next to me was staring at me. He told me the foil wrapper on my pita was arcing off my face! It tasted like licking battery too! I'm more careful these days, but sometimes it still happens with silverware (it's really rare). Don't say I care for it. Fish bones to your electric wrecking ball!

       Another assistant in the midst.   

       Tooth implants typically use a titanium stud both because it is strong and because the oxide on the surface of the titanium allows osseointegration--a direct structural and functional connection between living tissue of the bone and the stud surface which carries the load. Very similar to the OEM tooth root and bone integration.   

       Other materials being looked at include titanium nitride and very hard carbon (diamond-like) surfacing agents which are thought to have a high degree of wear resistance, strength and, importantly, biocompatibility.   

       As to why these materials might make someone have a pyschotic episode while eating a fast food pita sandwich is probably an area yet to be researched.
bristolz, Aug 14 2004
  

       All I know is what someone who was looking right at me (a 63 yr. old accountant who had to go out on the route with me that night, not somebody I knew very well) told me. It was about to rain, the wrapper was foil-based and the pita had vinegar in it. It wasn't a //pyschotic episode//, it was annoying and weird. I don't know if it means anything, but the guy did have mild heart attack later that night when a truck almost hit us. What I'm saying is I wouldn't buy this product for two reasons: the story explains one and the other is that a wrecking ball to the inside of one's mouth isn't good. I know plenty of people who have tongue studs and watched it happen.
Around TUIT, Aug 14 2004
  

       So . . . are you saying that you had an electrical problem with your fajita while you were eating in your car during a period of high humidity and at a time when a part of the implant stud was exposed?
bristolz, Aug 14 2004
  

       As observed by independant party the event was deemed electrical. I can only attest to what I experienced, because I was not looking into a mirror when said event took place I cannot verify the arc just what I felt.I guess I could of taken it out of the wrapper or looked in the rearview mirror but I didn't. It was free pita and I had to throw it away because I couldn't stand to eat it. It sucked.
Around TUIT, Aug 14 2004
  

       Odd. Jack-in-the-Box is usually so sublime.
bristolz, Aug 14 2004
  

       If I were riding with someone whom I observed to have a mouth full of lightning, I would insist that I drive. It is probably hard to concentrate on the road. Thus the truck.   

       But it occurs to me that your pita/vinegar/implant maneuver might have been useful for cardioverting your assistant after his heart attack. You probably would need to pull over for that, since you would need to bite him pretty hard and at the same time eat the pita.
bungston, Aug 14 2004
  

       I do have a mouthful a lightning, that's why I was the boss! (well that and nobody else was crazy enough to drive the truck!)   

       //But it occurs to me that your pita/vinegar/implant maneuver might have been useful for cardioverting your assistant after his heart attack. You probably would need to pull over for that, since you would need to bite him pretty hard and at the same time eat the pita.//   

       It wouldn't have been the strangest part of that night, but it certainly would have been the coolest!   

       Now, if I just figure out how to light a cigarette with it....
