A Little Clever Marketing Goes A Long Way...

Jacqueline in Texas shared this amusing product with me in e-mail yesterday:

Yes, that is exactly what you think it is: Monkey Farts Soy Candles...
Sounds Disgusting? Oh you would be surprised!! This candle is not only a wonderful conversation piece but has surprising pleasant aroma that has become one of our top sellers! This unique fragrance begins with top notes of fresh bananas and juicy grapefruit with base notes of vanilla. Sure to become one of your favorites.
Um, okay? See, this is what I mean - with a little bit of clever marketing, they'll sell a ton of these Monkey Fart candles. Heck, it was enough to get me to notice it, and that's just because it was a product with "fart" in the name. See, I have a Y chromosome, so I am genetically disposed to find humor in anything that has to do with bodily functions...

Just be careful when farting in a kilt - billowing is a real problem...

That is all.

Friend brought sample scents for us to try...it smells like the old Juicy Stripes gum. Remember? The one with the rainbow zebra on the package?

Fruit Stripe Gum! I haven't had any of that in too long. I loved that stuff. It was a nickel a pack at the movie theater where I lived when I was little.
