    AN INGREDIENT FOUND IN SMELLYFISH 

    You may recall that my previous post included a video clip titled AMAZING FACTS ABOUT WHALES (the more imaginative original title, WHALE WATCHING FROM THE COMFORT OF YOUR OWN COUCH WHILE GUZZLING BEER AND WOLFING DOWN A BOATLOAD OF SEA-SALTED SNACKS, was apparently scuttled for being too much to digest in one sitting).

    Now, after much wailing from the peanut gallery and an underwhelming wave of favorable comments about that post, I can say that a whale watcher by any other name would smell as sweat, so (having no shame), how about a post about another amazing sea creature, the SMELLYFISH?

    You have no doubt heard that an ingredient discovered in SMELLYFISH (more commonly known as the jellyfish) is the “clinically tested” source of the product shown in this clip (click, then scroll down a bit to view the commercial):

    Now, I don’t know about your pungency, but I can assure you that much the same smell discovered in SMELLYFISH can be found in even greater abundance by nosing around my armpits, feet, or posterior. While I can’t honestly promise that my byproduct will improve your memory permanently, I can pretty much guarantee that you won’t forget it in the near term. So why pay for this unproven product:

    ….when you can buy my unproven product (called B.O. IN A BOTTLE) for a fraction of the price. Just send me a signed blank check (don’t worry about the amount — I’ll fill that in and save you the trouble), and you too can have peace of minus, knowing that what you smell is what you get (when I get around to it).

    Act now and I’ll throw in a clothespin at no extra charge, just in case my smell is more than you bargained for. Fits any size nose in a pinch.

     
    • Notes To Ponder 5:05 am on March 10, 2019 Permalink | Reply

      Thoughts in no particular order and of questionable relevance –

      Why did the FDA approve Prevagen in the first place?

      The reigning champion of absurd dietary requests encountered during decades of work as a Event Manager – “no fish eyes, jellyfish or peanut butter” on the menu.

      Are you aware that humans are one of only five species on our planet to go through menopause? Wrong if you guessed the remaining four include apes, gorilla or monkeys. Correct answer – four aquatic mammals, bottle nose dolphins and three whale species. Humans, dolphins and whales, that’s it. Go figure. πŸ™‚

      gross out … I’m not into any of your snake oil products!
      Sounds like a pyramid sales pitch to me … might need to report this to the consumer watch office … but far more amusing than you preferred topic ❀

      Have you ever smelled a washed up, decomposing horseshoe crab on the beach in the hot sun? Now, that’s a smelly creature from the ocean! πŸ™‚

        Susi, I can empathize with the horseshoe crab, because I don’t think I’d smell too good either if my carcass washed up on the beach and decomposed in the hot sun. 😦

    MULTIPLE ME SPOUTING OFF 

    Yesterday (March 5) was MULTIPLE PERSONALITY DAY, but I didn’t write a post because my multiple personalities couldn’t agree on which of them should write it. Now comes March 6 and they still can’t make up my mind, so to bring this matter to a head, you will have to settle for a tale — a whale of a tale, no less — and not much more.

    Actually, there is more — if you’d like to know more about whales — but it’s on film, so you will be spared whatever might have written by me if we weren’t fighting among myself for post time.

    Next time, you may not be so lucky. We shall sea.

      I had a friend named Paula. She would sleep on my couch when she visited town. I also had a book about whales. Paula would all but impolitely demand that I read her to sleep each night from the book about whales. She was endearing like that, and it was fun.

      Kirk Douglas was okay… but Peter Lorre!

        To me, Peter Lorre was one of the most fascinating actors in movie history. Though he was primarily ‘just’ a character actor, it’s hard to picture such films as THE MALTESE FALCON and ARSENIC AND OLD LACE being as magical with anyone but him in those roles.

        Sorry, I haven’t seen it (though I notice movie critic Leonard Maltin doesn’t think much of it). But, since the film title is a play on ME, MYSELF AND I, here’s a multiple personality song that fits the bill:

      I love Kirk Douglas in this movie and in this scene. So glad you posted it – a terrific way to start the day.

      Also, thanks for sharing the video about whales. I realized that I know very little about whales. They are truly remarkable creatures.

        Sometimes things just fall into place, SS. I was looking for a way to finish this post, and just happened upon that interesting and informative whales video….so it was a treat for me too.

        I’ve published a post or two in the past featuring actors singing who few knew could sing (such as Errol Flynn and Jimmy Stewart). With this post, Kirk Douglas (in a clip from the film 20,000 LEAGUES UNDER THE SEA) can be added to the list.

        Way to go, Kirk Douglas! Though he was in “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea,” he’s still not ready to be six feet under the ground.

          Good morning. That is very true! He is “all of the men” of his starred roles. I suppose that’s what keeps him…
