Sorry, m.blog readers, if you were looking for some uplifting news today, you’re not gonna find it here. Kids are up to no good again, and their newest “drug” of choice – Burt’s Bees lip balm. Simply called “Beezin” the act of rubbing Burt’s Bees on and around your eyelids to get a high has become an increasingly popular thing, apparently. One guy (or gal I suppose) explains it like this: “Beezin’ gives you about ten minutes of minty, clouded vision and a fuckload of tears. If you’ve ever dove eyes-open into a pool of Scope (who hasn’t?) then you know the feeling.”
The kids are saying the tingling sensation enhances the feeling of already being drunk or high. The docs are saying the peppermint oil in the balm can cause inflammation, swelling, and infections. Well, I guess there are worse things kids have done. Like use vodka-soaked tampons and snort Smarties. Or, you know, cocaine.
This is the youth of America, folks. I thought being in high school in 2005 was tough. And apparently this was going on in 2005 in some places! Want to lose even more faith in the future of our country? Type “beezin” into Youtube. Kids be crazy.
