Well, this is surely an innocent mistake. Who among us hasn't accidentally grabbed the cocaine shaker instead of the powdered sugar shaker?

Yeah, mourners don't usually start smashing crockery and yelling "Opa!" at a funeral.

“Nicky, what a wonderful funeral! I was expecting to feel all down after this, but I feel like yelling “Opa!” and doing the Kalamatiano! Be sure to ask Alex who does his catering...”

I know Greece is seriously screwed up but is cocaine cheaper than powdered sugar there now?

Perhaps the situation could have used some Windex. Good for so many problems!

Does ingesting a little cocaine have a psychoactive effect?

I know that it is an effective oral local anesthetic, though certain realities make it uncommon for dentists and throat doctors to use these days.

Every good Southern boy knows that Coca-Cola used to contain trace amounts of cocaine. But that was before my time, and I have no idea what its effects were, if any. Nor do I know whether ingesting it has any psychoactive effects.

I'm sticking with Starbuck's and Dewar's for mood-altering purposes.

Yikes I hope no body ate one. Sounds like massive vomiting and diarrhea would be in store.

I’m thinking they’d all get the urge to make a Rick James video.
