Yet another sign of the looming apocalypse.
Apparently the Yankee Candle company (the company that makes the ones your wife keeps in the kitchen cabinet and lights up when she's cutting an onion, or after she's cleaned up the kitchen*) is marketing candles to men. Now this gave Dr. J. a chuckle, because in an era of bromances, man-bags, man-icures, and bronies, it was only a matter of time before mandles made it on the scene.
Now check out these scents:
|I love the smell of cut lawns in the morning...it smells like victory...|
|Mmmm...woodshoptastic...actually Dr. J.'s worst grade was a B- in 8th grade woodshop...|
|Real Corinthian Leather...God Rest Ricardo Montalban's Soul...KHAAAAAAAAAAAN!!!!!!|
|Man Town? This one's too easy. Puter?|
This got Dr. J. thinking, given that there are 400 scents marketed to women and only 4 to men, what scents are MIA?
- Hickory Smoker
- Burnt Diesel
- Kentucky Bourbon
- New Car
- Gun Oil
- Bait Shop
- Oil Change
- Pale Ale
- Bar Refali
- Pappy's Pipe
- Flint & Steel
- Beef Jerky
- Brake Dust
- Chili Garlic Sauce
Given Dr. J.'s proclivity for hydrophobic gifts for his Gormogon brethren, he may have to get 2-1B to whip up some new scents by Christmas.
* Not that cooking and cleaning is exclusively woman's work, most of your Gormogons are very good cooks and furthermore, Dr. J. cleans up the kitchen when he's done, but he doesn't light a candle as his coup de grace.
