“When my friend mixed onions with nitrous oxide, I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry”

Slicing onions makes people cry. Nitrous oxide (laughing gas) makes people laugh.

I don’t know whether to laugh or cry” was posted on Twitter by Dan Rebellato on April 28, 2009. “When my mate told me hed mixed Onions with Nitrous Oxide, I didnt know whether I should laugh or cry” was posted on Twitter by sickipediabot on October 23, 2012.
