What's the strangest misuse you've seen or heard of for a vape pen?


Someone on another website said they were out hunting, and put deer pheromones in his vape pen, because he thought it would make more deer come out of hiding. He immediately regretted that decision.

Since I do not hunt or use a vape pen, I'm posting this here because I know there are people who do, and am wondering if this sounds plausible.

I also heard about some kids who were at a party, and a girl asked a boy if she could have a vape, after seeing a similarly-sized cylindrical object in his shirt pocket. He replied that he was diabetic and that was his insulin pen. That, I find much more believable.

Dopers?

Not trying to be snarky here, but probably the worst way you could misuse one is to use it as intended.

Since the OP is asking about personal experiences, let's move this to IMHO.

True, especially if you're a teenager.

At least one of my patients has inserted vape pen parts into his urethra.

I lost track of him well over a decade ago. I think he learned the lesson: "If you want to fuck with your dick, don't fuck with your dick".

Why did he regret it? Was he trampled by a herd of deer?

You have to suck to get the vapor out.

I don't understand how an insulin pen in someone's pocket being misidentified is a misuse of a vape pen. Nor why anyone could have "heard about" that rather short nothing-happened story. Did some details get omitted?

One of the opening gags of Seth Rogen's "Hilarity for Charity" Netflix special has him vaping pot through his urethra.

I've been accused of vaping because I carry an insulin pen. This is not uncommon.

Yeah, but my patients really do this sort of thing. Most comedians are not telling the strict truth, IME.

I carry a insulin pen pretty much everywhere I go. Usually it's in a bag. Occasionally I have it in a back pocket. Once a guy(usher?) at movie theatre felt compelled to tell me not to vape in the theatre. I showed him it was a insulin pen. Later I thought, man, he was looking at my butt pretty hard to see it.

It's just that mistaking an insulin pen for a vape pen, safely in someone else's pocket, isn't a misuse of anything. Unless the untold part of the story is that she jammed it in her mouth and gave herself a shot before party boy was able to mention it wasn't a vape pen.

Not so much misuse as mistaken identity, I guess. People who don't deal with insulin pens every day probably wouldn't know the difference; they would just see something in a pocket that was the approximate size and shape of a cigar, and think "Oh, vape pen."

As for the OP, apparently he put some deer attractant into his vape pen, and vaped it. He had to let the smell wear off, both internally and externally.

Qadgop, is there anything guys WON'T shove up their urethras?!?!?!
