A Sign the Apocalypse is Upon Us

I thought it was Britney Spears ‘designing’ (yeah, right) a fragrance.
I was mistaken.
In the inbox today, an ad for a manly new foo-foo juice.

I guess since you can’t afford to gas it up anymore,
the least you can do is smell like one…
and remember the good old days.

    For men who can’t get …
    Oh, nevermind.

  2. I know you were going to say that mini-van drivers have no need of such unabashed ego boosting.

  3. Cullen says:

    We are emasculated of ego as surrely as we are our cajones.

  4. Crusader says:

    Not sure how it would sound if you proudly said “I’m wearin’ a Hummer!”

  5. Cullen says:

    Potential ad slogans:
    Get a splash of Hummer.
    Thrust forward with Hummer.
    Don’t whistle. Humm.
    Insignificant below the waistline? You can still get a Hummer.

  6. Cullen says:

    AND, I always thought this was the first sign of the apocalypse.

  7. Crusader says:

    Or:
    Smell like a Hummer; no need to give her a pearl necklace.

  8. Nightfly says:

    I will never forgive them (or Pete Townsend) for hearing “Happy Jack” in that H2 TV commercial. OK, the spot was clever, but really…

  9. (But the kid was cheatercheaterentitledcheater! That made it even worse.)
    Hummer:
    Our crank case is bigger, smells better.

  10. Mr. Bingley says:

    “Honey, I’m giving you a Hummer for your birthday…””

  11. The Real JeffS says:

    God, more male stinkum. Just what the world needs. What’s wrong with smelling like hot motor oil and/or sweat? Ain’t that masculine enough?

  12. Cullen says:

    Better than smelling like a Hummer, methinks. Can’t stand that diesel smell.
    BTW, Jeff, are you (you and your section in particular) using HMMWVs or GSA/contract vehicles to get around? When in Afghanistan, we deployed with our HMMWVs (big mistake — cleaning). When the unit deployed to Kuwait (just before I PCSd into the unit) they used contracted Land Rovers. The bastards.

  13. The Real JeffS says:

    Both, although the “non-tactical vehicles” (NTV) are much more popular….as they have AC. ;-P

  14. Cullen says:

    I’m sure your convoy rules are pretty strict. Are you allowed to convoy with multinational forces? We could ride with the Italians to Kabul if invited and we had at least an O-5 signed off on it.

  15. Trust you to find the fun bunch anywhere, Cullen!
