JOSS-STICKS, n. Small sticks burned by the Chinese in their pagan tomfoolery, in imitation of certain sacred rites of our holy religion.

2009 Update: An religious olfactory decor, meant to make ritual sensible.

Did you drink orange joss this morning?
Most of us are Average Joss.
If you ride in the back of a pickup, you get all josstled.

Dawg, didn't your parental units teach you not to play with burning issues? I mean, somebody could really get incensed with all this, and then where would you be?

And on an Aloha Friday, too.

My dog Adi joss sticks to her yard. She's a smart beagle like Ambrose who I'll bet who joss sticks to her yard too.
Joss stick that in your craw and smoke it (or else light your firecracker with it).

A religious necessity in college dorms, used to hide the smell of sweet smoke. Whatever that is.

Poobah, I didn't know about her. Sounds good, thogh.

For what, TLP? Actually, never mind.

Jumpin Jossephat, JD!

Bear, I'm guessing that's what Bierce meant.

Cured and smoked, Amoeba.

Bow wow.

Jim, I think you came home French.

Yeah, what could that be, Coop?
