Gawker posted a story about Subtle Butt and, having the mind of a 12-year-old boy, I just couldn't let it slip by without sharing it...
Finally, a way to dignify the experience of sitting around farting in your pants: Meet Subtle Butt, the odor-eating butt patch. "I use them on airplanes, after a chili meal, and even on my dog," says its evangelistic creator.
And, of course, there's a tactful video that shows just how well the product works...
"Hey Mom...I just got cast as the lead female scientist in a new TV commercial. You and Dad are going to be the talk of the town once this baby starts airing!"
Chelsea Handler is going to have a field day talking about this new product.
Lordy...as if the Marriage Blanket wasn't bad enough, now we've got this butt-patch and THESE other useful products from the same company:
Solutions That Stick features other stick-on products like Knicker Sticker (it sticks to the crotch of your pants to prevent camel toe) and White Collar Grime (you stick it to your collar so you don't sweat on it).
I have restrained myself vigorously from littering this post with fart references about Subtle Butt, but the great thing about the people who comment on Gawker is that they...do not. Here are some of my favorites:
"Let's call them Stanx. (You're welcome!)"
"12 bucks for a pack of 5??? If I had that kind of money, I'd just buy a new ass."
"I anxiously await the arrival of Subtle Box to help me with my lady business odors."
"But how does this address the sharting issue?"
There are some very funny people out there in this world.
