Ten minutes later. More spewing. Notice increasing redness in face. Notice also the bathroom key affixed to the edge of the cubicle using Genuine Velcro, with miniature boxing glove key chain. This is to be used only in dire emergencies.

At this point, Erik's nose is beginning to bleed. He underestimated the power of McCormick's Brand Cinnamon. Cinnamon so strong it will make you bleed. Notice the absence of friends. Everyone who might otherwise be near Erik's cube is now afraid to be anywhere near the erupting volcano.

"The power of cinnamon is too great for me." Erik is now realizing that it wasn't a good idea to eat a tablespoon of cinnamon. The judges at this point are telling him to stop trying to be a hero and make use of the emergency flushing device (cup of water).

This is what came out of Erik (excluding Pepsi One can, granola bar wrappers, and other odds and ends). Notice that the tablespoon is in the trash. This was ejected along with the high force cinnamon blast as seen earlier.
