Standard warnings before using this device include:
Throw up your hands!
Get those hands up Chuck!

       Keg beer usually does the trick quite well.

       Note we are talking about artificial. I think you just have to capture the g**-awful smell of the real thing, and spray that.   

       But this still cuts very close to mace, pepper gas and the like. Distance delivery mechanisms exist for all sorts of non-lethal forces.

       Mephista - it's not a cat puking, it's a weapon.

       I don't get what those links have to do with this idea, other than they share a mention of the concept of vomiting.   

       You're right, though. Puking cats are not funny, especially when you're the one who has to clean it up.

       Projectile Keg Beer vomit could also be considered a weapon, but aiming and timing get very difficult..

       Creamed corn.

       See link. This whole 'fake vomit' thing is nothing new... neither is projectile creamed corn, methinks...
