Do You Know You Stink?

This informative deodorant ad from way back in 1935 tells you how to know whether you stink or not! This boingboing.net posting on Sunday noted the gleeful touting of technology to "gently close the pores" and the need to define the term "deodorant". I posted this piece because I thought it is relevant even now...especially in a hot and humid climate like Malaysia. Do you also know that there are men who just love to sniff at women's armpits because they love that "stinky-sweet" bouquet?! Okay, there are those who will find this distasteful and there are those who will find this secretly pleasurable! I say, to each his own!


In an exciting SPL match, Celtic scored an emphatic 3-1 win over Kilmarnock. Adventurous Killie survived an early battering until Robbie Keane brilliantly weaved his way into the penalty box to chip the goalkeeper after 37 minutes. And then Keane again blasted in a 62nd-minute second and Scott Brown slotted a third goal four minutes later for rampant Celtic. Kilmarnock woke up too late when Craig Bryson's deflected cross deceived Artur Boruc for a 73rd-minute reply. This victory simply re-established a 10-point gap at the top of the Scottish Premier League.
