Made for a man... strong enough for "Sex with X"!

wolf_sounds considers deodorant brand names.

If they're going to give names to deodorants that will entice consumers, yet have nothing to do with the actual scent, why don't they use names that people associate with sweating?

I'll give you some examples. Let's go with women first:
"Yelling at 4 Kids While Making Dinner"
"The Boss Grabbed My Left Boob"
"Fabio-lookalike Just Winked At Me"
"Soccer Mom. 'Nuff Said"
"Going Clubbing"
"Wearing a Sweater in Alabama in the Middle of July"
and "Cute Guy Down the Hall Needs to Borrow a Hammer".

And the men:
"Just Ran From the Cops"
"12 Hour Sex Marathon" (Name too long? Shorten it to "Sex with X")
"No, Honey, I Can Fix the Plumbing Myself"
"Dude, I Just Grabbed Her Left Boob"
"Of Course I Can Make It Through That Puddle, I've Got 4-Wheel Drive"
"She Said She was 18"
"Stuck With My Woman in the Middle of the Lingerie Section"
and my personal favorite, "Hey, Gamer...USE ME!!!"

I for one shall go and seduce me some French chicks! Then... sexy, sexy gout.

stephe opines:
I know a good bit about the history of our country, and about what this holiday once meant, and frankly the current perversion of our nation's basic ideals that has become the norm for national discourse just depresses me. All I will say here is this: remember that the Founding Fathers, in their time, were regarded as dangerous, radical, unGodly leftists. Try to emulate them sometime.

[Morning meeting at the Daily Blowhard]
Boss Journalist: People are getting their news from places besides us. We need to remedy this quick!
Jerry Journalist: How about we not kowtow to politicians and big business, eschew fearmongering, and provide people with the information that they're not finding in our newspaper and so are seeking elsewhere?
Boss Journalist: Bull-cocky!
Joe Journalist: How about we work ourselves into shrieking fear and write as many articles portraying the internets in a negative light as we can?
Boss Journalist: Ingenious! Joe Journalist, congratulations on a five cent raise!

rampagingturtle (http://rampagingturtle.livejournal.com/) has a brilliant idea...

"I think that everyone who has to deal with the public a lot as part of their job should be randomly assigned one day of the year on which they can legally punch any customer who is being an asshat. The workers would receive permits showing their assigned date, but the public would not be notified of any given worker's assigned date. I'm thinking that, after the first few weeks of assholes getting punched in the nose without warning, the public would take into consideration that it just might be a worker's assigned day before giving him or her shit.

Oh, who am I kidding? The assholes will just assume that the odds are overwhelmingly against them getting punched. However, I think that being issued a lead pipe with my permit would help me deal with that disappointment."

So true!

"Harry Potter Fandom people are delusional sickos with empty lives and empty souls, who should be taken out of the public circle and have treatment forced upon them until they can return back to society as normal, functional people.

Harry Potter Fandom is a greater public health danger than the spread of crystal meth."
