DOH DO'H

It is now official: Nostalgia is out of control.

Play-Doh is peddling a cologne that smells like Play-Doh. It's a stinky 50th anniversary gimmick, according to the New York Post:
"We're about bringing everyday memories to life in a bottle," says Christopher Gale, founder of Demeter Fragrance Library, where eau de Play-Doh joins 170 other scents, including Dirt (which smells like a plowed field), Snow, Tomato and Fresh-Pumped Gasoline ("oddly enough, a lot of women requested that").

"To be honest, you may not want to wear it as a cologne," Gale says of his firm's singular sense-sation, "but you might just want to take it out of your purse or glove compartment now and then and just smell it.
Cost? About $20 an ounce. Or you can buy some real Play-Doh and practice your sniff-and-squeeze technique.

Demeter Fragrance offers plenty of scents, but their library lacks one important fragrance:

You smell that? Do you smell that? Napalm, son. Nothing else in the world smells like that. I love the smell of napalm in the morning. You know, one time we had a hill bombed, for twelve hours. When it was all over I walked up. We didn't find one of 'em, not one stinkin' dink body. The smell, you know that gasoline smell, the whole hill. Smelled like - victory.

I read somewhere Bush prefers the smell of rank propaganda in the morning...

Back in the 80s, when Woody P. Snow was actually funny, he had a phony ad on his show for Coupe De Framage (French for Cut the Cheese). Desdinova the Eternal Light.

Oh, great! Still another reason to list on our already too long list of reasons to dislike Woody Snow. Now he's showed up in the Chatter Blog. Oh, c'mon you guys...at least a couple of you know exactly what I'm talking about.

My late husband Thurston used to call him Woody Snow Peas.

"Would He"??
