I thought I had seen and heard it all. Evidently I hadn’t. Erykah Badu is selling her vagina-scented incense (No, this is not a joke) on the market. I had to read carefully to make sure I got this one right. Here is the story:
While I applaud great business incentives, I can’t help but shake my head at this one. Would I buy it? Only when ‘icicles ornament Satan’s Fiery realm.’ The question I am now asking is “What reason would ‘anyone’ have for this product?” I am sure that someone will buy it based solely on her name alone, but for now I just can’t see it (and thankfully I can’t smell it either). I would love to know how well the sales go on this product. So far I don’t know of anyone who is rushing out to purchase this. I can remember years ago when I was in London, England at a souvenir store. There was this small genie bottle with a cork in it. The label on it read, “London air.” As crazy as this seemed to me, I’m sure someone went and bought it. I didn’t. There have been a lot of things that people have invested into, including time shares and stuff like that. Sometimes I think people don’t even know what they are truly wasting their money on. The only thing I care about is the value something has for me. Someone else may think something is worth a lot (and they might be right). However, if I can’t see the value in it for me then I won’t go for it. Erykah Badu has every right to sell her vagina fragranced incense. I sincerely hope she becomes a millionaire off of it. Unfortunately if won’t come from my support. I can’t remember the last time I willingly bought a crotch smelling product. You can make your own determination. Thank you for checking out my Daily Thought, and as always I wish you the very best that life has to offer.
