At least the guy they quoted knew enough to ask if it would be poisonous... 😉
I've seen a lot crazier things happen in HI ... like walking across freshly cooled flows only to find out that their shoe is flammable when it breaks the top layer to the still molten lava underneath. Or tourists trying to body surf Sandy's because "America's a free country" after telling them not to go into the water....
In case you don't know the reference:
I had mainland friends show up but miss meeting me at Sandys... one got to stay an extra 3 weeks in HI... in Queens Medical. The other I got all bustup pulling him out of the water because he wouldn't ride a wave back in for almost 3 hours. 6' face shore break... ❤️
