Sure, blame it all on the ugly chick after the business has done nothing to move out of 1957. what's next, no more Fuller Brush salesmen going door to door? Even farking K-Mart began using celebrity endorsement years ago, and Sears-Roebuck began selling known name brands many years prior to that.
Sadly, if Avon closes its doors there will be untold numbers of young men across america who will never know the thrill of be groped by a scented painted sales Rep while their Mom tries on samples in the bathroom mirror.

/if an Avon lady making my son a man is wrong, i don't wanna be right

I remember two things about Avon from childhood.

1. They had a lotion that, for whatever reason, was a better mosquito repellent than Cutter or Off.

And

2. My mom's Avon lady was about 80 years old. The jokes in this thread are making me a bit queasy.

It's called Skin-so-Soft. And yeah that was big in my neck of the woods. It never seemed to do much for me so I stuck with off usually.

I had a friend who was allergic to DEET. That stuff was a godsend to her.
