Some are saying it’s 35 years too late, but I for one welcome the official Guns N’ F’n Roses Appetite For Destruction bong, because I got an appetite for getting bent.
When Gunners first appeared in 1987, the world was turned upside down. Who were these bad boys, these Guns N’ Roses? Where did they come from and where were they going and would be okay if I did not go with them? Their debut album, Appetite For Destruction, came out on Tuesday, July 21, and by Wednesday, July 22, every bogan and his dog knew the words and was dreaming that one day—maybe in three decades—the band would put out a 12-inch bong emblazoned with the GNR logo and those cool cartoon skulls from the album cover. ‘Come to think of it, that’d be a cool tattoo too,’ thought many bogans.
Today that dream came true for millions of unwashed, yellow-toothed bogans worldwide with the arrival of the bong in the shitty low-res picture above. The APFD water pipe is available through Smoke Cartel, and for the low, low price of $74.99, it can take pride and place in the centre of whatever you’ve made a coffee table out of because you were too busy being a naughty bogan to do your homework and now you deliver pamphlets.
