How To Make A Pumpkin Bong

It’s the special Halloween edition of The Mernahuana Show. The weekly weedy variety (420 est until 420 pst) show geared to stoners is kicking it up a notch yet again. How can we can top making hash using GreenHarvest Pollenmaster 150, bringing live marijuana plants to the studio (Vapor Central) and other zaniness that I can’t remember?

By making pumpkin bongs!
That’s right! Bongs from pumpkins. Like the apple or potato pipe we believe we can totally make a bong from a pumpkin. We’re not sure if it’s going to be good. However, if you can brew pints of pumpkin beer – we seriously think we can use a pumpkin to filter marijuana for a better toke. Or at least a pumpkin flavored toke! People talk about marijuana strains with great flavor or use flavored rolling papers – well this is the next step.

Can we get a good pumpkin taste? Or will it taste terrible? I don’t know! I’m curious to find out. The question we all have – or at least I do – should we clean out the pumpkin guts or not. So we’re going to make two pumpkin bongs. One with guts in it, one sans guts. The sans guts we’ll fill with some water and the one with guts will just let it rip. Then we decide.

My Tweeps @Rosepants and @Coralreefer420 have done this project before with great results. You can watch their video on how to make a pumpkin bong. They’re so cannabis crafty! They did a great job explaining how to make a pumpkin bong. It’s so easy that the professional potheads who sit in the ‘people who don’t smoke schwag’ section of the studio audience can do it. I’m counting on them to pull through on this project. Though I’m kind of nervous they’ll somehow fuck it up. With them you just never know. Do budbabes make better crafters? We’ll find out!

All potheads will be given an opportunity to try the pumpkin bong to make their own decision on whether it’s good or not. We (or me) might be able to convince executive producer and lounge manager / owner Goodster to keep the pumpkin bongs around for a few days to let people try them. Some simple rules for today. Keep it clean. No fucking around with pumpkin guts. No making the lounge gross with pumpkin innards. We’re going to clean up after ourselves. Remember the line between fun and stupid is very narrow. Let’s not cross over it making pumpkin bongs.

Tune in today at 420 est until 420 pst to see us do this project live on The Mernahuana Show. Or catch the repeat posted the next day.
