Donkey dust is slang for ketamine
, a widely used medical dissociative anesthetic
with a major recreational black market
users are also known as "zombies
" or "ketapillars
" because after hoovering
too many rails
, they lose the ability to walk on two feet, resorting to quadrupedal perambulation
In the mythical stages of ketamine
intoxication, the donkey phase precedes the ketapillar
, and the ketapillar
phase precedes the legendary k hole
ORIGIN from modern English donkey (slang for "doofus") + dust.
Etymological note. Donkeys travel on all fours, they are known to be stupid, and their nostrils are enormous. "Wonky
" is slang for ketamine
, and it rhymes with "donkey
." Although ketamine
is commonly used as a human anesthetic
, urban legend labels it a horse
tranquilizer, and horses are just one step removed from donkeys. "Horse" is also slang for "heroin," a much nastier anesthetic of abuse. None of this is coincidence.
After just 280 milligrams of insufflated
donkey dust, Arctor staggered about on all fours like a drunken burro
Donkeying is not pretty, but it's hilarious to behold.
