If you aren’t familiar with Vaseline, I suggest you spend some time together. Vaseline is oily, feels extremely greasy, is clear, and does not easily come off, even after washing your hands. These properties make it the perfect substance to put wherever an unsuspecting hand might push, touch, or grasp. Such places include, but are not limited to:

  • door knobs,
  • lamp light knobs,
  • car door handles and stereo dials,
  • hair brush handles,
  • curling iron handles,
  • cooking utensils,
  • phones,
  • alarm clock switches,
  • any metal handles,
  • light switches,
  • many more places that I’m sure will pop into your head!

What makes Vaseline such a great gag, is that 1) it feels absolutely disgusting when you first unknowingly touch it, 2) you may not know what it is right away so that’s disgusting, 3) even if you know what the goop is, it is still gross that Vaseline somehow got on the place you just touched and is also now on your fingers and hands, 4) it can make the object it was smeared on difficult to use, and 5) you now have take the time to clean it from your hand and the object you just touched.

Perhaps the most comedic application of Vaseline is when placed on a lamp knob in a dark room, where the person has no other source of light and is forced to use the lamp’s slippery knob or sit in the dark. Speaking from first-hand experience, turning a lubed-up knob is an almost impossible task, unless you first wipe off the Vaseline, even then, if any of the lubricant remains, it is still a daunting challenge.

You might want to try taking Vaseline to your next family get-together. Place some on doorknobs, especially the front door, and watch your relatives find a little something special when they try to let themselves in.

The vaseline thing is funny, funny, funny. I found the best place to put it is the the toliet seat. Man o’man I did it to my sister. I forgot that I put it on the seat and when she sat on it she sliped off and she had that vaseline shit all over her. It was funny.

Thanks Danielle
