“Gee, Your Car Smells Terrific!”

It’s a hand sanitizer! No, it’s a chrome polish!

Professor Reynolds catches a whiff of olfacto-cultural critique from Wired writer Keith Barry. His best line:
We’re predicting that the next products to take off will be official Subaru-brand patchouli and a leather conditioner for your Grand Marquis that smells like Canoe and stale Dutch Masters.

My favorite:
"If you’re not about German brand loyalty but still want your skin to look smoother than a cylinder liner, Meineke announced earlier this month they’d be selling the Facelube line of skin care products for men. With cleaners, balms and salves that range in price from $25 to $115, each part of the skin care regimen mimics a step of the car care process from an oil change to a transmission fluid flush. Except, it’s for your face."
