It’s Not a Bioweapon, It’s Patchouli

I had missed this initially, but apparently over the weekend there was a small amount of Tularemia bacteria discovered by the Department of Homeland Security in one of their downtown bio detectors. Not enough to be concerned about, but enough to spark this awesome Fark headline: “Investigators conclude that rare toxic bacteria detected in D.C. during last weekend’s anti-war protest not a bio-weapon, but instead attributable to elevated presence of dirty hippies”

    If you really think patchouli isn’t a bioweapon you haven’t ever gotten stuck next to some dreadlocked dirtbag who thinks it’s an adequate replacement for soap.

    I had a sample of patchouli underarm deodorant from Lush. I tried it once when I was out of my usual Secret Shower Fresh and had freshly showered.

    I never realized how much I hate patchouli until I had it under my arms. It smells like body odor itself. Nastiness. I ran right out to the store to get some more Secret and was sure to keep my arms tightly at my sides the whole time.
