Excuses, Excuses

A strip club in Capetown, South Africa has come up with a brilliant solution for the man coming home late from a night out on the town: a line of fragrances called "Alibis."

This brilliant product line allows a man covered in cheap stripper perfume to mask his scent with a series of decent alibis.

They offer:

My Car Broke Down: The scent of fuel, burnt rubber, grease and steel
We Were Out Sailing: The scent of fresh ocean spray, sea salt, aqua and cotton rope
I Was Working Late: The scent of coffee, wool suits, cigarettes and ink

This reminds me of a Japanese gentleman's club (back in the day before mobile phones--yes, I'm that old) that had a phone booth a patron could go into, choose from a variety of background noise options (like "Office" and "Men in Pub") so when they called home they had a good sounding alibis. Literally.

Of course, in this case, you'd best not be wearing We Were Out Sailing if you live in Topeka.

I'm just sayin'.


  1. I think they could come up with "Working In The Cornfield" for the people of Topeka.

  2. Perfect, Lea! The scent of diesel exhaust, corn pollen and dirt.
