Maureen Dowd Almost ‘Dies’ On Pot Candy Bar, Internet Responds


Maureen Dowd Pot Brownies

In case you missed it, 62-year-old New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd “almost died” while nibbling on a pot candy bar in Colorado. It seems that she forgot to check the recommended serving size first. Seriously, you have to read the entire column. There are way too many gems throughout it–including Dowd’s preferred stoner attire of green corduroy pants. Here’s a small sample to get you hooked…

But then I felt a scary shudder go through my body and brain. I barely made it from the desk to the bed, where I lay curled up in a hallucinatory state for the next eight hours. I was thirsty but couldn’t move to get water. Or even turn off the lights. I was panting and paranoid, sure that when the room-service waiter knocked and I didn’t answer, he’d call the police and have me arrested for being unable to handle my candy.

Seriously, how amazing is that? Please tell Maureen Dowd to keep taking drugs, and maybe we’ll get our New York Times subscription back. Obviously, the internet went nuts over this–check out a few of the funniest tweets below…
