DRINKING THE KOOL-AID by Cleophus Beasley

Jim Jones Party
Current mood: chipper
Category: Religion and Philosophy

Several friends of mine and I actually did this in the early Summer 1991...

Items needed fer a Jim Jones Party:

1. Several packets of grape Kool-Aid
2. Water soluble benzodiazapine tranquilizers (We used Ativan), crushed
3. Sugar
4. Punchbowl
5. Dixie Cups
6. Ladle (Optional)
7. One copy of "Guyana Tragedy" (Ours was a VHS tape)
8. Space on the floor to lay down on
9. TV
10. VCR (To play the video)

On a kitchen counter, in a punchbowl, combine all of the grape Kool-Aid mix
with sugar (To taste), crushed up Ativans, and the appropriate amount of
water. Stir. Arrange the Dixie Cups on the kitchen counter in neat rows.
Pour the Kool-Aid into the Dixie Cups, using the ladle, until gone. Fast
forward the movie towards the end, to the mass suicide part, then hit
"play". Have guests drink the Kool-Aid while watching the movie. Once the
Kool-Aid kicks in, enthusiastically urge party patrons to lay down on the
floor. Fer added shock effect, arrange fer other people to come over to the
party later, after everyone is passed out on the floor, to make the
"discovery"!
