Zach Smokes Weed
On Air

Zach Galifianakis has "sparked" big controversy over his appearance on HBO’s Real Time with Bill Maher this weekend.

Zach Galifianakis on Bill Mahar

While discussing Prop 19, a measure on the California ballot in tomorrow's election which would make marijuana legal in the already bud-friendly state, the comedian, whose new film Due Date opens on Friday, said, "It's a tricky thing politically to jump on that bandwagon because I think that maybe people still see it as taboo."

To prove his point, he pulled out a joint, lit it and offered to puff puff pass it around the table.

Zach sparks one up

Promoting whistles, whoops and applause from the audience, Zach passed the dutch to the left hand side to Margaret Hoover, a conservative talk show host, who was laughing hysterically as if she were already stoned. She sniffed it, nodded and said, "It's real."

Hey, if you're so conservative, Maggie, how do you know what weed smells like?

Maher, unfazed, continued the debate, while Zach's fellow panelists giggled and blushed until Galifianakis erupted with a joke, saying, "Oh my god! Look at those dragons!" before settling back down and saying, "That's my point, that's what people think of it."

Did he inhale?

Whether or not the joint Zach puffed on was real or fake, his Cheech and Chong-ish performance has caused quite the stir which is likely exactly what he had in mind.

The panel was discussing the issue of marijuana legalization and Zach brought a ton of attention to the ballot measure, for good or bad, with his public display, one that surely made Snoop Dogg, Michael Phelps and the Marley family quite proud.

"OUR" OVERCORRUPT "CORPORATISM"! Most Respectfully, please submit This Most Patriotic and Most Faithful Message also personally and specially to a Nationally Significant Patriotic Friend. Thank you! OUR “MOST BELOVED” AMERICA’S MOST CROOKEDLY EVIL ANTI-AMERICAN “CORPORATISM”! Most Respectfully, This Most Earnest Patriotic Appeal was also submitted to almost all of The Heads Our Churches and to almost all of The Presidents and Provosts of Our Universities – “personally”! UNIVERSAL PSEUDO-CORPORATISM!!! This Most-Loving Prayer was also addressed to Pope Benedict XVI – Most Faithfully! THE WORST CRIME, EVER, AGAINST ALMIGHTY GOD’S HUMANITY – FOREVER? (In True Honor to Dr. Martin Luther King’s Most Patriotic Legacy!) The Nucleus of Our Whole World’s Ever-Growing Suicidal Nuclear Crisis is created by No Other than the most Defrauding and Most Greedy Ultra-Conservative and by the most Ultra-Libertine Politico-Religionism everywhere – Universally! Our Whole World has no True Religion anywhere! The Nucleus of The Most-Dominant Over-Ambition of Our Universal True Atheism is none other than The Most Voracious Globally Inhuman “Corporatist” Economic Exploitation; all by the most Extreme Global Disregard to The Most Fundamental UNIVERSAL HUMAN LITERACY and also to The Most Fundamental UNIVERSAL GOOD-SAMARITAN HEALTH INSURANCE. These two together Indeed Constitute ALMIGHTY GOD’S TRUE UNIVERSAL ELEMENTAL DEMOCRACY’S Most Vitally Essential Means for TRUE INDIVIDUAL EQUAL OPPORTUNITY to reach THOSE INDISPENSABLE ALMIGHTY GOD’S INDIVIDUAL ELEMENTAL HUMAN GIFTS (RIGHTS), NO-MORE, NO-LESS!!! All of Our Vast World-Wide Perpetually Shackled – AS ILLITERATE AND INFIRM – HUMANITY in Our Western World is ever more and more so “CRUCIFIED” as threatened with impunity by instilling in them “Our” Religionist-Inculcated Utmost Fear of “GOING TO HELL” if they have “NO FAITH” – that is, if disobedient to “Our” Politico-Religionist False “Leadership”; as just like telling them “THEIR ‘HEAVEN’ IS LIVING IN OUR SATANIC EXPLOITATION”! Our Totally Politico-Religionist Western World has always even tried to expand Our Most Voracious Greedy Corporatism to Our Islamic Eastern World’s “Friendly” Governments, but I most-strongly suspect that Islamic Religionism has an opposite but Equally Religionist-Inhuman Self-Defense: when Our Western Corporatist Inhuman Intervention reach their Eastern Critical Religionist Level – as in Our Unending Warring Perplexity with The Islamic World – Their Islamic Religionist Counteracting General “’Inspiration’-To-Go-To-Heaven” is no other than Their Ultra-Terrorist “Salvific” Individual Self-Immolation! ALL OF THESE, FOR SURE SO FAR, ARE THE IRREFUTABLE PORTENDING SYMBOLISM OF A-MOST CERTAIN-NUCLEAR ARMAGEDDON: THERE IS NOT THE SLIGHTEST DOUBT ABOUT THE CERTAINTY OF THE WHOLE WORLD’S TOTAL HOLOCAUST! MAY WE TRULY PRAY, SO THAT WE ALL – TRULY AND SOLIDLY HONEST AMERICANS – REALLY ENABLE THE ALMIGHTY GOD TO BLESS (SAVE) OUR MOST BELOVED TRUE AMERICA!!! OTHERWISE, ANY OTHER “CRIME” OR “ABORTION” IS AN INNOCENT BY-PRODUCT!!!
