WTHWYT - Your Brain On Whipped Cream

In the St. Louis Post-Dispatch from The Associated Press:

"HARTFORD, Conn. - A prominent writer and lecturer on eating disorders who collapsed in a supermarket after allegedly inhaling propellant from whipped cream cans applied for a special form of probation Thursday.

According to the arrest warrant affidavit, West Hartford police were called to a grocery May 29 and found Berzins lying on the floor and bleeding from her head. Berzins told police she did not know what happened. Investigators concluded that Berzins inhaled from three cans of whipped cream containing nitrous oxide, known as laughing gas, the affidavit said.

Berzins was charged with possession of a restricted substance, criminal mischief and creating a public disturbance." (full story here) (picture source)

I've got a few questions:

  1. Ms. Berzins, What The Hell Were You Thinking?

  2. Why didn't you just buy the cans and take them home? Is there some special ambiance in the super market? Has whipped cream been outlawed in your house?

  3. Since when did whipped cream become a restricted substance?

  4. Are super markets going to have to start selling whipped cream from behind a counter with cans that have warning labels and child-proof lids?

  5. Why wasn't she charged with theft?

  6. How did the police figure out what happened? Was there a pile of whipped cream next to her on the floor?

  7. Did she have a cherry up her nose?

  8. Is this the real reason people shoot whipped cream directly into the mouths? For the buzz?

  9. Will whipped cream now be sold in head shops?
