Is this proof that men never grow up?

Have you ever noticed how some people blog about the strangest things? Totally random, unimportant, and inconsequential things?

And isn't it such a relief to know that when you come visit my blog, all the posts are enthralling, inspiring, vitally important, and will in some way inevitably change your life?

Allow me to demonstrate.


This is my husband's deodorant.


I know, that was deep. I got chills just writing it. Pretty inspiring if you ask me.

But wait, look here, on the back. It gets even better.

Allow me to read it to you.

*clearing throat*

CONTAINS ODOR-FIGHTING "ATOMIC ROBOTS" THAT "SHOOT LASERS" AT YOUR "STENCH MONSTERS" AND REPLACES THEM WITH FRESH, CLEAN, MASCULINE "SCENT ELVES."

Now, I don't know about you, but I've never seen such things on the back of MY deodorant. And quite frankly, I'm a little jealous!

I guess even when men are old enough to need something like deodorant, it doesn't mean they've outgrown the desire to use phrases like, "Atomic Robots" and "Stench Monsters".

Is this proof that men really don't ever grow up?

Still, I must admit that I am curious to know if the atomic robots in my deodorant shoot lasers at my stench monsters.


Now aren't you glad you came by today?

I bet you'll never look at deodorant the same way again.

See? It changed your life.

Ok, so that is my husbands deodorant, it's the only one he can wear he is allergic to others. and I buy them because he does NOT go into a store unless he is being dragged or dead. And in the 8 years we have been together I have NEVER noticed that on the back. Now I am going to have to look at it every single time and laugh. THANKS

You are the best! This is hilarious and yes I will never look at deodorant the same way again. In fact, I want to start buying this stuff for Bret!
Men are perpetual third-graders the rest of their lives. My husband changes the words of songs on the radio to be about poop and farts. And I have to confess, it makes me laugh.

Haven't I always said...I RAISED "9" children? Yeah..."8" children...+ your "papa"...Why is it that "mothers"..."wives"...have to do the "growing up?"...Is this what Father meant...when our "roles" are been divinely "designed"? Hmmm....still pondering over this...

gigi said...

What made you look at the back of his deodorant? Yes I will never look at them the same again and now I'm off to go look at the back of mine! Funny girl.

I'm left with only one word. Wow.

Old Spice isn't your dad's stinky deodorant anymore!

Ben, Heather and kids said...

Saimi said...

That's hilarious! I grew up smelling Old Spice, like, on my dad...

Well it just goes to show you, you can teach an old dog...or spice..new tricks!

Garden of Egan said...

That is hilarious! I want to go get some of this because I totally love it.

I wonder if anyone really reads the labels.

The Kooky Queen--Rachel said...

Hahahaha, oh my gosh, that is so funny! My hubby uses Old Spice (not original, some funky man scent though) so I gotta go read his, that is hilarious!

Neisha said...

lol!! I'm jealous that my deodorant doesn't say anything fun like that

Patty Ann said...

I buy my boys that every year for their Christmas stockings. They love the stench monster stuff. Yep, they will always be boys to me!!

Christy Carlson said...

Thanks for the great laugh! Now I need to go to the store to read more labels. :)

Jocelyn Christensen said...

Well, girl deodorant has stink fairies that twinkle away unpleasantness ...although I'd prefer Robots as well...

Cheeseboy said...

Actually, I am a little disappointed that he spoiled one of our many "awesome man secrets". He better not show you his shaving cream!

Cluttered Brain said...

oh crap. So lucky.
Man alive...there should be stench monsters fighting women's odors too..
I'm going to the store tomorrow and looking on the backs of all the deodorants...
Bwahaha.
Hilarious.

M-Cat said...

I just read the back of my deoderant bottle and there is NOTHING that cool on it at all. In fact. BOring. I find this to be completely sexist and I might have to write a strongly worded letter to the makers of Secret since they tout that it's strong enough for a man -

Kirk and Cami Hull said...

Jealous.

Seth said...

Are you implying that the label is not serious?

Bethany said...

That's too funny! How come guys get cool sayings on their deodorant though..?

Jackie Strange said...

Thank you for the laugh and the delightful, well written description of deodorant! I almost bought that brand for my son, but never read the back! I will next time!

Cougarg said...

Old Spice has been fighting the perception that it is your grandpa's scent for some years now. Trying to break into AXE's target demo of the 18-40 male consumer base. But AXE already has the "crazy sex" thing going on, so Old Spice is going for "the modern adult male is still 13 years old" thing. Their marketing campaign is really bizarre. Their recent spokesperson is this musclebound guy spouting crazy stuff like that off at random. With the word "old" in your brandname, you have to go above and beyond to convince the consumer that they are not in fact old if they use it. Losing battle if you ask me.
