Tootie's Bong

Okay, ummmmm... I watched The Facts of Life religiously, and wanna know how I missed the following episode:

"Mara-what-a?"

I love how hardcore it is. Tootie didn't buy rolling papers or a pipe--she bought a bong. Three of them. Go Tootie.

I'd give anything for a follow-up episode, one where Tootie buys a crackpipe, but I think we've already seen that. It's called "Whitney Houston: The E! True Hollywood Story."

(BTW, how messed up is it that the producers made the one black girl on the show buy the bong? Why couldn't Joe have gotten all tangled up with this pot-smoking girl-band? We all know she was a lesbian.)
