Lube makes the world go round...

Having another "obsessive activism" moment. I kind of thought this sort of thing would end when I got to toggle off my "single" status, but obsession runs deeper than that.

Anyway, spent several hours yestereen doing the phonebank routine for the gay rights lobby.

One thing I couldn't help but notice--they're gearing up for a pride parade and two massive parties in the next month, and have been soliciting corporate sponsorship.

The far wall was COMPLETELY covered, about five feet deep, in boxes shipped in from a personal lubricant company.

OMG. What a lot of lube.

Some was labelled "Apricot flavor."

I can't help but imagine the response letter that led to that pile.

"Thank you for your interest in Fric-Free Personal Lubricants. We regret that we cannot offer your organization financial support. However, here's 38 crates of lube."

Now I know what we're getting as a wedding present ;)

Lube! Lube for EVERYONE!!!!

Except for the banana flavor. I'm keeping that.

Now if he uses lime, and I use coconut...

That would be a ...different song.

I like the Muppet version!

Remind me never to eat your banana foster. ;)

Eww. No, thanks, we reserve artificial flavorings and colorings for the bedroom, never the kitchen.

::giggle:: I may have to adopt that particular rule for life :)
May. 18th, 2005 08:57 am (UTC)
It's a useful one, and saves a lot of confusion and bad feelings.

Thank you Jacob. You just broke my brain.

"Reserved for the bedroom" indeed. *snrks*

La la la la la I can't read you

I'm sorry, I try to avoid TMI, but it was such an odd thing, I had to share...the visual image, not the product...
May. 18th, 2005 10:50 am (UTC)
Oh, share the product, please! We should get *something* to compensate for having that mental image shared, after all...

Only flavors they have left are liver and cappucino. Your pick...

May. 18th, 2005 03:05 pm (UTC)
Cappuccino, plz!
May. 18th, 2005 08:57 am (UTC)
Mmmmm. :)

It's probably carcinogenic.

This is especially funny given that my workplace is ramping up for our next marathon, and there are boxes and crates and more boxes of sponsor schtuff sitting around (nothing *that* interesting, though, just sugar watersports drinks and candy-coated styrofoamsports bars and the like).

I wonder what Kraft is sending to the Gay Olympics. They're sponsoring them...
May. 18th, 2005 02:37 pm (UTC)
ummm... Squeezy-Cheeze?

*head reels*
May. 18th, 2005 07:59 pm (UTC)
Well, they *were* giving it away...
May. 18th, 2005 08:12 pm (UTC)
I think they should have stuck with flavors associated with more, uhh, appropriate parts of the body, for lube anyway.
May. 18th, 2005 09:54 pm (UTC)
So, we're back to banana, then :)
May. 18th, 2005 11:35 pm (UTC)
Fer shame.. so many other ideas are easy

1) Ice Cream
2) Roasted Hot Dog
3) Sweaty Gym Socks (For those nights when you have a headache)
5) Pancake Batter
6) Musky Nutlog
7) Spicy Jalepeno
8) Salt and Vinegar (No unnoticed open wounds tonite !)
9) Grainy Cheese

The things they can do with artificial flavoring are truly amazing, but not necessarily advisable :)
