Smile Snorkel Pulling?

I ran across this post from a thai forum and had to share
here is the original post http://www.thaivisa.com/forum/Kawasa...27.html&st=450



THE SNORKEL-PULLING FAQ

Q: Should I pull my snorkel?

A: Only you can decide if you should pull your snorkel, but a thorough
consideration of the legal, ethical and technical aspects is well advised
before you do so.

Q: Well, that was really unhelpful! Care to be a little less vague? How about
starting with the legal aspect?

A: Pulling your snorkel is legal in most states in America (hence the
oft-heard alternative term "yanking" your snorkel). Even where it isn't
actually legal, the chances of getting caught are minimal. Those who pull
their snorkels almost always do it in the privacy of their own home when no
one else is around. Later, when they're out in public, no one can tell they?re
pulled their snorkels (although some might guess from the silly grins recent
snorkel-pullers frequently wear). Pulling your snorkel in public is likely to
result in derision and puzzlement more than actual legal action (but see
ethical considerations below).
Snorkel-pulling is actually believed to be mandatory in some parts of
Australia.

Q: How about those ethical considerations, then?

A: Some people believe it is just wrong to pull your snorkel. They are of the
opinion that it is an unnatural act, detestable in its very nature; an affront
to God, decency and Honda. Others say that this first group consists of
prudish spoil-sports and that snorkel-pulling is acceptable if you take the
proper precautions. (We advocate only safe snorkel-pulling.)
Most prefer to pull their snorkel in private, out of modesty and for legal
reasons, and we cannot regard group snorkel-pulling as anything but deviant.

Q: And the technical stuff?

A: There's really nothing technical about it. No tools are necessary and no
special training is required. Most people find it comes quite naturally. Just
find your snorkel and pull it. (If you have difficulty finding your snorkel,
you're probably not ready for this level of hedonism. Best go back to debating
the merits of WD-40 vs. chain wax.)

Q: Hey, that mention of chains has got me excited! Are there any products
available to enhance the pleasure of snorkel-pulling?

A: As mentioned before, nothing special is required in order to pull your
snorkel (although lubricant may be helpful for some), but that doesn?t mean
you can't be creative. Dressing for the occasion (full leathers) is found to
enhance the pleasure of many snorkel-pullers and the truly adventurous
sometimes take photographs or make videotapes of it. Surprisingly enough,
there is not yet a web page devoted to the pleasures of snorkel-pulling, but
it's probably only a matter of time...

Q: Will pulling my snorkel make me go blind?

A: No. Snorkel-pulling has been conclusively shown to have no effect
whatsoever on eyesight. Some people find it does have a slight effect on their
hearing, but most of them report that they like what they hear.

Q: Are there any drawbacks to pulling my snorkel?

A: Aside from the sneers of those who disapprove of snorkel-pulling, there are
no serious disadvantages. There have been suggestions that it can result in a
loss of "mid-range" potency and some alarmists claim that it can cause serious
breathing difficulties, but those who have actually tried it report few side
effects.

Q: Is it OK to smoke afterwards?

A: It depends on what you want to smoke: Anthony Gobert is rumored to be an
snorkel-puller, and look what kind of trouble he's gotten himself into. On the
other hand, he frequently smokes the competition so it's not necessarily a bad
thing.
Many people report that snorkel-pulling is a good accompaniment to a nice
pipe.

Q: Is there any organization to help snorkel-pullers?

A: Sadly, there is no snorkel-pullers support group yet, but help is easily
obtained on the mailing list. Most list members are willing and able to
help out fellow owners whenever the need arises. In this tightly-knit
community of like-minded individuals, it's not uncommon for someone to ask a
complete stranger to "come over and help me pull my snorkel tonight". It is
this kind of selfless devotion and altruism that sets snorkel-pullers apart
from the crowd.
Well, there are a few other things that set tham apart, but that's probably
self-evident at this point.

I wonder if you would be arrested in Saudi Arabia for pulling your Ninja's Snorkel

So I go to this shop and ask them if they can pull my snorkle. I get these strange looks and they point to the dressing room. I guess Victoria's Secret don't get my humor; or maybe they do!

I noticed none of the ladies on here have posted about pulling the snorkel. Maybe they aren't the "hands on" type.

The girls have someone else do it for them. All we have to do is stand there, look confused and some strapping young lad comes to save the day. Besides, it's much better when someone else pulls your snorkel.
