More Signs of The Great Tribulation

I think we can all agree that things that smell like food, but aren’t, are an inherently bad idea. I make a marginal exception for things like Strawberry Lip Gloss and Beeswax Chapstick which are at least not actively harmful, but if you have a Pumpkin scented candle in your house you’re only making me both hungry and disappointed because I really like Pumpkin.

Better you should actually bake a pie. The crust comes fresh from the dairy aisle and the recipe is right on the Libby label.

What we certainly don’t need is something like this-

KFC Made Sunscreen That Smells Like Fried Chicken

How many times have you wished for a sunscreen that makes you smell like fried chicken? If the answer is “Never,” you are not alone. Nonetheless, fast-food chicken chain KFC has come up with a sunscreen that brings to mind the odor of fried chicken.

There’s a none-too-subtle joke in there somewhere about the similarity of tanning and frying. Especially since George Hamilton, an actor as well-known for having a super tan body as he is for his body of work, is the latest KFC spokescolonel. The pitch is part of an ad strategy for its new “extra crispy” chicken option.

A sort of faux infomercial about the product was also part of the giveaway, which you can check out below. If you’re moved to get a bottle of the stuff, there’s some bad news: KFC spokepeople say all 3,000 bottles had been snatched up within hours of the campaign appearing on its website.

I’ll note for the record I don’t really like fried chicken, or indeed any chicken, that much.
