Why chew it? Just sprinkle a few pieces on the bed, before your SO gets home. Romance isn't dead.

I can smell like a loud, overweight Irish rug muncher? Sign me up!

Roses really smell like boo-boo.

Finally, she can't use the "Like your shiat don't stink" defense.

They're marketing this to MEN?

Men should smell like a combination of sawdust, motor oil and Jack Daniels.

/I'm a lumberjack and I'm ok..

I wonder if they can make you emit other odors? The possibility for pranking would be overwhelming...

She won't mind getting gum in her hair, if it smells that good.

In related news Korea produces food that makes the body produce a cabbage and sulfur smell.

I'm wondering how they "announced on July 10" when it's presently July 2nd.... ???


/rose scented time machine, now I'd buy that for a dollar!

It'd be like an amorphous hairpin.

rosey smell? no thx.
some a them female-stimulating airborne pheremones? sign me up

I'm so drunk right now, I'd buy a caseload. That way, I could get rid of the beer smell before I came home to my normally quiet pet plant.

Brew78: some a them female-stimulating airborne pheremones? sign me up

The formula for that needs a real concentrated dose sprayed up her nostrils. So if you can get close enough to blow up her nose without using said pheromones, they would be useless anyhow.

This gum is the perfect addition to the pill that improves the taste of semen.

The gum sounds baaaaaad.

This sounds good: Flux Capacitor: This gum is the perfect addition to the pill that improves the taste of semen.

But the site is freaking me out, man.

It's taken me 44 years to properly cultivate my "wildebeest in heat" stench. I'm not about to throw that hard work down the drain!!

/and you kids get the hell off my lawn!!

This had better show up on J-List...
 
2006-07-02 07:57:24 AM  
Uh, have you people smelled the average salaryman over here?

shiat, I'm gonna buy a case and give 'em out free at Ikebukuro station...

Normal chewing gum already causes the body to emit 'fragrances'

That gum you like is going to come back into style.

And the Amazonian Illuminati continues their secret plot to pussify the males with innocent looking chewing gum continues unabated

Crandextrin? Mystery non-food ingredient is it? Try fruit juice. Cheaper. Sweeter. Actual food.

Ugh. I expect purchasers will shower less.

There are some things you can't cover up with lipstick and powder.

Your dad doesn't scare me.

I'd be pretty creeped out by a guy who smelled like roses. I mean... men should smell like men, not women.

/thought it was weird enough when my boyfriend ran out of deodorant and used mine, because he smelled girlie, like pears, whenever I hugged him.

In other news .... Mexico introduces a bean that makes you smell like farts.
 
2006-07-02 09:56:59 AM  
When are they going to make one that makes me smell like money?
 
2006-07-02 11:06:40 AM  
I can only assume this was the same company that sold gum that supposedly made women grow bigger breasts. What will they think of next?
 
2006-07-02 11:49:16 AM  
For some reason, chewing gum that changes my body chemistry doesn't really appeal to me.
 
2006-07-02 12:24:18 PM  
Pass on the rose smell. Guys, get yourself a bar of irish spring soap. Only thing I've found that get the jetfuel smell off. Well, there's that & pinesol cleaner but then you loose a layer of skin & smell like a forest.

Bombing of France to begin in 4-3-2....
 
2006-07-02 01:21:58 PM  
I'd buy it. Someone tell me who the Canadian distributor is.

I am all in favor of other scents too.

rackrent: That gum you like is going to come back into style.

Right after that episode Adams re-released their three oldest brands (still available at Costco World Market). It was awesome.

Dawn dish soap concentrate and green Brillo pads.

That's seriously what I used to clean up when I was turning wrenches for a living.

All you "men should smell like men" types obviously have never smelled the men this gum is aimed at.

Trust me, the "pussification" was complete aeons ago, and smelling like lavender and KY would be preferable to now.

Don't forget fellas, she would be more likely to provide happy ending if your spunk tasted like rosewater...

forget roses - stick with showers and cologne guys!

/loves cologne
