B.O. Brand Goes Bust

leave a comment »

So this morning I went to put on my deodorant on all the usual body parts this morning. I was using Gillette’s Cool Wave. Suddenly I realized I ran out with one more arm pit to go. I was out of Cool Wave in the closet, so I went with Storm Force. What’s the difference? I have no clue. And apparently neither did anybody else.

I’ve been a Gillette man for most of my life. I may have tried a few other brands in my youth, but I know I started going with Gillette in high school. However, Gillette has been jacking up the price for their product for a while now, and my supply is starting to run dry. And by “run dry” I mean “only have three more bars in the closet.” This of course means I am out looking for the cheapest price. One problem. What used to be a product I could get for $2 on sale (and then add a $1 off coupon), is now about $4 with a $1 coupon.

Kiss my black ass.

Last week Wal-Mart had Right Guard at buy-on-get-one-free and I had two $1 coupons. Yep. I made the switch.

Now since I’m talking about this subject, I’m not allowed to get Old Spice. Why? The better half’s old man uses Old Spice. This means I can’t use Old Spice. Oh well. Life goes on.

Not Throwing In The Towel With My Dislike Of This Etiquette Rule

with one comment

So I’m sending a pair of Terrible Towels to a friend’s two kids. Don’t know what a Terrible Towel is? Don’t ask. The kids are Steeler fans and live out of state. Why am I doing this? I’m hoping this will get their MILF’s panties wet. I’m that nice a guy. Why am I talking about this? Because if I didn’t mention the backstory, you probably wouldn’t understand why I’m about to post the following conversation. You can figure out who’s who.

“Forgot to mention this. My only rule: Don’t have your kids write any kind of ‘thank you’ note. I hate that shit. I doubt you would do this anyway because you lack almost as much tact as me, but just pretend the Steeler fairy put these under their pillows.”

“Hahahahahahahahha. I’m totally gonna make them do it. But via facebook.”

“I just always thought that was stupid. Kids don’t f’n care and those letters are so phony. It’s like saying ‘thank you’ when you get socks at Christmas knowing full well you don’t care and just want to speed up the process to get to the really big presents under the Christmas tree.”

Well it’s true.

Eating My Heart Out

Then: Watching those television shows in which the host says, “Hey look at this place that serves up 5 lb burgers,” and me thinking, “Awesome. I’m so going to that place.”

Now: Watching those television shows in which the host says, “Hey look at this place that serves up 5 lb burgers,” and me thinking, “My God. How can anyone eat that and live?”

I don’t watch those “Man vs. Food” shows all that often, but there’s a college football broadcaster (Todd Blackledge) that does a mini-segment which is similar to this format. Each week he goes to a local eatery in the city whose hosting the football game he covers and shows off some gargantuan greasey glob of artery-clogging goodness.

Of course, “Taste of the Town” doesn’t quite compare to stuff like this on the gluttony scale…

Oh if I was younger I might have a shot at taking on the Big Texan Challenge.

And for the record, the Primanti’s sandwiches aren’t THAT big. Well, except for the Colossal Fish. Then again, I had this after a Black Friday excursion, so 10+ hours of shopping fatigue may have had something to do with my experience with this dish.

Well, there is a segment of the population that believes The Force is real.
