so, a = b^3?

Mike said...

I think so :D

Lzygenius said...

But patchouli smells good.

silver sound said...

Not on people, it doesn't.

Mike said...

haha :D

Steph said...

this is great... I never would have thought about describing hippies with a mathematical equation.

A Paperback Writer said...

Okay, we really need a scratch-and-sniff here. I can think of several smells this might be, but I'm not sure which one it is.
Pity we haven't yet invented smell-o-blogs (with the smell optional, of course -- although some of those cooking blogs would be great with this feature).

Scott said...

oh I'm getting this on a t-shirt.

lzygenius–everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but ewww!

Nag Champa, now that's a different story.

Chana said...

ROTFL!!!!!!!!!!!

Same with Drakkar, Polo, and the other thing that my ex would wear. Royal Copenhagen! Toxic waste, all!

That's really, really funny.

hahaha

jean said...

SO funny.....and SO true!!

Anonymous: Thanks for reminding me. I just put a few drops of Nag Champa oil into my light ring. I forgot I had it. Mmmmm....smells wonderful!

Chana:

I would add Obsession for Men to your list. My ex wore this, and his girlfriend wore the women's version. Guess he thought that way I'd never smell it on his clothes! Either smell makes me nauseous even today. Toxic, for sure!

gaga said...

Hahahahahaha - fucking HA! So true! Patchouli scent for me always has an undertone of BO.

Thoughtful Review Guy said...

lim (a/b) = ∞
b->0

∴ The cleaner you are, the worse patchouli smells; or:

lim (a/b) = 0
b->∞

∴ The stinkier you are, the better patchouli makes you smell.

QED...I don't know what I've demonstrandumed, but it is something, I'm sure. :P

GDad said...

Right on the money.

As I recall from Miss Manners or Emily Post or something, a gentleman's cologne should not enter the room before he does, and it should leave the room when he does.

Moda di Magno said...

b*3 = Tag Body Spray

OMG Jessica - this is utterly brilliant!

I live in Venice Beach and can confirm that this is not just hystertical, but also mathematically accurate.

ice weasel said...

Classic and so right.

And YEAH! to the person who added "body spray" to the list and cubed it.

Back in the day, when I was but a lad, I learned that cologne for men was nice but that less is more. You shouldn't smell it unless someone was "intimately close". Fair enough.

You made me laugh out loud with this one :)

Mags said...

WICKED FUNNY-and sadly...true.

Elwood P. Dowd said...

Sorry about that (for around 40 years or so, yeah I'm an old hippie).

I do get positive reactions and usually from people that I'm interested in getting positive reactions from.

If not patchouli, or the other toxic fumes mentioned, what suggestions would be less offensive to today's olfactory sensibilities?

Erika said...

get your patchouli stink out of my store!!!!!

GDad said...

Elwood,

As a past manager of entry-level corporate employees, I've actually had to have this conversation repeatedly. The least offensive choice for today's olfactory sensibilities would be showering every morning with a mild soap, like Ivory, and using an unscented antiperspirant.

The people you spend your days with don't get any aroma, and the people you spend your evenings with can catch whatever pheromones you want to share.

scofflaw said...

say what you will about patchouli, its better than most spray ons.

(Am a sage, sandalwood mix fan myself)

feminaformosa said...

so awesome and true! a good friend of mine and I are in agreement that patchouli is disgusting.

Gnugs said...

ah... you must know my Fed-Ex ground delivery guy.

fat girl said...

agreed!
