Where do you suppose they're getting their Tiki Torches?

A few months back I saw a young white male take three of them from Home Depot. I remember thinking that I had never actually seen anyone purchase tiki torches before.

I wonder what stores are going to increase their inventory to meet the racist demand.

2. They're citronella torches

You can get them at Home Depot, Walmart, Lowe's, etc. They're in the mosquito control section.

Now I wish they weren't mosquito control because these SOBs deserved to be attacked by a swarm of mosquitoes.

13. They are pretty common at stores like Home Depot

I think people use them because the smoke keeps mosquitos away.

16. I suppose we should be grateful they're Tiki Torch Nazis

I can just see the real torches they'd make with broomsticks, ripped up polyester golf shirts and charcoal starter. The burning polyester would melt all over them and then people like me would have to cope with them in the ER.

I think WalMart and Target also sell them, they're big at suburban pool parties.

17. Everywhere!! They have them at my local grocery store

Anytime someone has a party, out come the tiki torches. The guy you saw was probably planning an outdoor party.

They supposedly repel mosquitoes - citronella candles.

All of my in-laws are into entertaining and have stashes of them.

18. Walmart had an end of season sale and they

were only $2.50 each. I bought one for the canister. The canister alone was $6.99!

21. I avoid them because I thought that some of the cannisters had a

tendency to blow up. I'm guessing that the tiki torches have a better design.

22. Most tiki torches purchased by white males...

 

Are for positive reasons.

That said, as I go in to purchase new canisters I fully understand if the person next to me has that thought. It's how terrorism works. In the mind it can even pit friends against friends.
