A Conversation for Vomiting - a Cautionary Tale from New Zealand
Sheffield Rag Puke Book
Researcher 196952 Started conversation Jun 21, 2002
The Rag Committee at Sheffield University keeps a Puke Book to record every instance of alcohol-induced vomting during their activities.
It started in 1966 and continues to this day. My own entries are in volume 2.
Each puker has to give a name to his/her produce - an incredible list of euphemisms for chundering ('The Grand Old Puke of York' was one I witnessed, but perhaps the best name was 'The Automatic Choke').
Bizarrely, a graph of pukes per year closely matches the rate of inflation in the UK, though its validity as an economic indicator has not been accepted by the Bank of England.
