Can You ID This Strange Old Tool ?


Tobacco Smoke Enema Kit,
for administrating Tobacco Smoke Enemas
(1750's – 1810's)

The tobacco enema was used to infuse tobacco smoke into a patient’s rectum for various medical purposes, primarily the resuscitation of drowning victims.

A rectal tube inserted into the anus was connected to a fumigator and bellows that forced the smoke towards the rectum.

The warmth of the smoke was thought to promote respiration, but doubts about the credibility of tobacco enemas led to the popular phrase “Blow smoke up one’s ass.”

This has been reintroduced in Washington D.C., by the Obama Administration.

It will be part of the New Health Care Program.
 
Thank You Dan From the Bottom of My Bottom !

Is there a federal health care tax on second hand smoke? I bet Obama like to use first hand smoke on Reggie.

For the anal retentive bunch out there...substitute your herb of choice and...WHOA what a rush!

Scott, I'll have to take your word for that.

Mr. AOW said...

Obama's personal unit for blowing smoke up America's ass!

I wonder how many of these he has? Must have had plenty in 2008. That's how he got elected in the first place!
