Ok. I know this isn't really a LIST topic, but I have to assume that a
number of us have had our curiosity piqued. Can you tell us a bit more?
I mean . . . do people really do this stuff? (smell that? That was
sarcasm!) But really, I've been enjoying the product packaging
conversation -- especially the humor stuff!
Perhaps I just grew up on the wrong side of the tracks, but what kind of
"high" does one get from towels??? :) (because, you know, I have some in
my bathroom, and I'm pretty stressed out . . . ahem. That was a joke.)
