Once in a while online I see some people making fun of the 60s era by leaving this "quote:" DON'T EAT BROWN ACID

Some people say it has something to do with Woodstock or the Woodstock movie. Well I've watched that movie literally hundreds of time and I don't recall anyone saying this.
So how did this supposed quote come about? I know that Frank Zappa has a song called "Don't Eat Yellow Snow." I wonder if Frank Zappa has anything to do with it?

Im only 25 so I dont know from experience....but from everything Ive learned about music, I think that WAS from Woodstock, Altamont or Monterey. Doubt it was Monterey because Owsley catered that party. I think its Woodstock where someone definetly says something about bad acid over the loudspeaker.

Not sure of the type of acid, but the quote is very much from Woodstock. There was an announcement made over the PA system - it appears on the album.

Just getting some initial feedback from people just to see if they knew. But I was holding back something..........

In the movie, Chip Monck does make a stage announcement about brown acid, but DON'T EAT BROWN ACID weren't his words at all.

He said that the brown acid circulating about "isn't too good" but he never said anything about "eating" it. This is what I don't understand. How did the quote get so distorted?

Wavy Gravy made the announcement at Woodstock. It is in the film, and album. The medical tents were overloading with people freaking out.

I remember seeing some brown powder that folks said tasted like Hersheys Milk Chocolate Mix. Could that be the same stuff? It was about 5-8 yrs after Woodstock.

I don't think so, my friend.

Seems like what I recall is the comment was more along the lines of a warning about bad acid and a recommendation to do a half a tab or something of that nature. I thought the rap was more about how they were talking care of people having bad trips and not to worry about poisoned acid. Then again, been along time since I watched it.

I own the film and have seen it several times. There is an announced warning about brown acid. And if you google "brown acid woodstock" there are many references to it. For example:

"It is recorded, on the "Woodstock" record, which is six sides long and has selected songs and stage announcements from the entire festival. This is exactly what was said- I'm transcribing from my record now:
Uh, to get back to the, uh, the warning that I've received you may take it with how many however many grains of salt you wish, that the brown acid that is circulating around us is not specifically too good. Uh, it's suggested that you do stay away from that, course it's your own trip, so be my guest, but, uh, please be advised that there is a warning on that one ok?"

My son-in-law's first band was called Cid Brown...

I don't think so, my friend.

Barry, I googled it, and came up with this.....
A reference to the Woodstock Festival in 1969, when stage announcements were made by legendary radio disc jockey Wavy Gravy, telling people that some of the brown-colored blotter acid (LSD) circulating the crowd was giving people negative hallucinations, causing freakouts.

rlrichie had the quote exactly as it was made by Chip Monck. Maybe Wavy Gravy made announcements about it too, but his are not in the movie or on the album.
As for someone saying "don't eat the brown acid.", they were probably paraphrasing and got it screwed up.

You're right!!! Thanks

In a way I feel I started a silly subject for conversation, and for that I apologize! But I think this quote really got out of hand and it actually annoys me. Do people actually say they "eat acid???" I'm not an acid user by any means so I really don't know!! All I know is that Chip never mentioned anything about eating it, but now all these silly young kids quote it as "don't EAT brown acid" Very weird.

I know I'm getting old. Earlier, I was at a festival when this was announced:
"it has come to our attention that the brown sugar replacement is bad. The yellow and pink stuff is okay, but remember, the brown sugar replacement is bad."

Yes, (some) people do "eat acid." At least that's the term we always used "back in the day."

I believe the quote is "Don't eat THE brown acid."

If you do a search with "the" you will get many results.

if you don't know about eatin acid, i can't tell you what it's like

sugar cubes were greaty, but i always faired better with blotter by spitting the paper out after awhile and not swallowing it - kept my stomach from getting so knotted, or so it seemed. esafp.

"it sounds like he took some orange sunshine. do you have any allman brothers to put on?"
