Remember that old Dr. Pepper commercial whose chorus went "I'm a Pepper, he's a Pepper, wouldn't you lke to be a Pepper too?"
I ask 'cause it reminds me of this new Burger King fashion/hygiene accessory.
Typically when I slip up and hit up a fast food joint, I go 'cause I want the taste of fat-filled burger.
But I've never wanted to smell like one. So it was with great interest that I found two boxes on my desk when I arrived at work this morning - both from Burger King. Both contained cologne. Actually it was body spray called "Flame." Same thing.
Anyway, here's the funny thing - the slogan on the "Flame" label reads "The scent of seduction with a hint of flame broiled meat."
After I had picked myself up off the floor from laughing so hard I sprayed a little "Flame" in the air. And I'd swear I smelled the "hint of flame broiled meat." But a male colleague said it wasn't there and I was succumbing to the mental power of suggestion.
We both decided though that "Flame" had to be wack, just the same as if CrackRonald's released a body spray called "Grease." But we also agreed that women are the best judges of what smells best on men.
So I took the "Flame" bottle to several female colleagues, including my boss, and let them smell it without showing them the label.
They loved it.
So now I am eating my words that "Flame" must be wack. I'm gonna let Mrs. B smell it. And if she likes it, there could be a shakeup coming soon in my daily body spray rotation.
I don't mind smelling like flame-broiled, lightly-seasoned meat, served my way on a sesame seed bun.
I've smelled worse things on humans.
