Three Kingwood Texas teens are under arrest for digging up an abandoned grave and stealing a skull to use as a bong. According to ABC13 News , the three boys vandalized the grave of an eleven year old boy who died in 1921 in an abandoned cemetery. They've been charged with misdemeanors, abuse of a corpse, while the police have yet to locate the skull.
The word bong is an adaptation of Thai word baung , meaning a cylindrical wooden tube, pipe, or container cut from bamboo stem. The Thai word passed into the English language during the Vietnam War when five American military bases were located in Thailand. Soldiers used to pick up habbits from villagers including smoking cannabis in a Thai kind of pipe called baung. Later the word baung was transformed into bong and brought back to America with troops.
