Why pull instead of push?

On a dank and rainy day, much like the day I fell in love with your mother, I was surfing the Internet as an excuse the avoid doing the drugery work of Joe versus the Volcano, when I happenstanced upon a how-to article that involved PVC. Of course this immediately took me back to my days of chasing girls (called College) whence I would create homeomade bongs to smoke janga grass in, melding together pieces of pvc drain pipe and flexible rubber hoses with tin foil fire pits, etc etc (if you have a photo from the days, please post it).

Anywho, i made a mad dash to the bathroom, and once I was done purging myself of 12 turkey hot dogs, I drove to the local Value hardware store and procurd 1- 10 ft length of 3/4" pvc. Next to me at the pvc pieces shelf was a man with the biggest belly I've ever seen on a non pregnant possible male species, having trouble breathing, possibly his girdle was too tight.

$21.48 later I was the proud owner of pvc pipe and pieces, to which I hustled over to the republican's house, and proceed to engage the nintendo twins in a project of upmost importance: Scatter mini-marshmallows all over the house as fast as possible.

That's right, we build a blow gun to shoot marshmallows. Now I have to find some photos and show you how it was done. Until next time, toodooles...
