How fucking peculiar. I mean, really? You'd want to smell like Apollo? Or fucking Clix? What the hell does that even mean?

the answer to this question makes me feel that this does not qualify as SCIENCE per se though.

I chose "Science" to throw off your guesses.

Oooh, I haven't done THAT joke in over a year... Let's pull it out of the archives.

I needed deodorant and when I went into the store, I found that one particular scent of one particular brand was far cheaper than all of the others.


Well, the brand was Axe...and they name their scents all sorts of crazy things...things that you don't really associate with scents at all...things like Phoenix and Pulse.

This particular one...the CHEAP one? The scent was...Tsunami.


I bought it, whatever. I'm wearing it right now.

And I know you're curious. You want to know...

What does Axe Tsunami deodorant smell like?


Saltwater...seaweed...and dead people.



Could be...hmmmm...




No, it's definitely dead people.

And of course it's insensitive...that's what made it funny.

They are not trademarkable words, being that they are already in the dictionary.

They're all settings on my blender. Duh.

I was going to say, they are all spelled correctly. But i guess this Axe answer is just a little better.

They are all names of clubs (not in seattle though) and likely serve martini's for no less then 10 dollars
