Toxic Vomit

Thus read the headline in the Akron Beacon Journal this morning, from a wire report:

Japan

A farmer who committed suicide by drinking pesticide vomited the poison at a hospital before he died, releasing toxic fumes that sickened more than 50 people, the hospital said Thursday.

Those of you out there who know me know that I have a something of a fetish when it comes to throwing up. I'm sorry for the farmer, but this story put a real smile on my face.

Ain't life grand?

In celebration of this tragic event, I here note some of the best words or phrases synonymous with vomit or the act of vomiting:

throw up, barf, puke, upchuck, hurl, heave, heave-ho, toss your cookies, ralph, spew, regurgitate, purge, yack, blow chunks, retch.

Got any more? Feel free to list them here!
