Deodorant Wars II: The Aluminator Strikes Back

(Warning: reading Part One will probably still not help you make much sense of this nonsense.)

DEGREE CLINICAL PROTECTION: RIGHT! DUDES, ARE YOU READY TO GET FUCKING SERIOUS ABOUT UNDERARM PROTECTION? HAVE YOU HAD ENOUGH OF PUSSIFIED DEODORANTS THAT LEAVE YOU RANK AND SWEATY BY MID-DAY? ARE YOU INTERESTED IN THE HIGHEST PERCENTAGE OF ALUMINUM ZIRCONIUM TETRACHLOROHYDREX YOU CAN BUY LEGALLY THIS SIDE OF FUCKING MEXICO? ARE YOU READY FOR THE INSANE AMOUNT OF POONTANG THAT'S ABOUT TO HEAD YOUR WAY?

Dsc00203

DEGREE ULTRACLEAR: I am like, so totally turned on right now.

SECRET FLAWLESS: Bitch! You're from the same product line! You're practically related! Also, he's mine!

DEGREE ULTRACLEAR: No way, he's mine!

DEGREE CLINICAL PROTECTION: GIVE IT UP FOR TRISOLIDTM, LADIES! HIGH FIVE, STEVE HOLT! LET'S GO BENCH PRESSING!

Dsc00205

SECRET FLAWLESS: Oh, you wanna start something now?

DEGREE ULTRACLEAR: Oh, it's already been starterated. The caps are coming OFF, Vag Head.

Dsc00207

DEGREE CLINICAL PROTECTION: CATFIGHT! NIIIIICE.

TOM'S OF MAINE: You guuuuuuys.

TOM'S OF MAINE: You know, so maybe I don't offer all the fancy promises you guys do. Maybe my label doesn't have a lot checklists and benefits and made-up sciencey-sounding words like yours. Maybe the warnings about aluminum in deodorant are pretty stupidly overblown and okay, maybe I don't actually "work" as a deodorant in the "traditional" sense. But I do have one thing I'd like to share with you. A song. From my heart. It goes a little something like this...

La la la la lavenderrrrr ladiessssss
I want to respect you, I want to make you feel good about your purchasing decisionsssss...

*KICK PUNCH BLAM BLAM THUD*

Dsc00213

DEGREE CLINICAL PROTECTION: THIS WAY, LADIES. HOW 'BOUT WE HEAD BACK TO MY PLACE AND LOOK AT MY COLLECTION OF CVS SALES CIRCULARS?

DEGREE ULTRACLEAR & SECRET FLAWLESS: *scandalized giggles*

Dsc002131

DEGREE CLINICAL PROTECTION: (ASIDE) (TO AUDIENCE) ...and no one will ever have to know that I'm actually preferred by close to 100% of pregnant women who have to steal their husband's deodorant in order to not stink by lunchtime! I'm so ashamed, and yet...and yet it feels so right.

Dsc00214

TOM'S OF MAINE: I...I heard...that.

To be continued?

(Oh God, I hope not.)

I just had the worst day on record...there is a giant poo-cloud following me around...

I've been lurking around your blog and chuckle often...but this made me laugh out loud.

Thanks!!

Trish

Thank you. I haven't laughed this much in ages. Bring on part 3!

Mel

Haha, I love these! It's so funny the way you pose them! :)

These photo essays crack me up every time... I snickered all morning at "The caps are coming OFF, Vag Head!"

My current favorite is Dove Go Fresh in the grapefruity scent... I'm not dealing with the pregnancy hormones, but I definitely like a strong deoderant lol.

Speaking of deoderant, is anyone else skeeved by the new Secret commercial? With the annoyingly perky brunette skipping around the city randomly flashing her armpits at everyone, ending with a flourish when she stops dramatically in front of a cop and SNIFFS HER PITTS??? What the HELL people. That shit pisses me off enough to intentionally NOT bu Secret, just because I'm so damn annoyed that armpit sniffing is what their marketing team thought would appeal to women.

Kaza

Awesome! I will never look at my deodorant the same way again.

Monica

The gel! You need the Secret gel! Forget the solids! See them put to the test oh-so-scientifically here: http://www.slate.com/id/95549/
