Sometimes we're just poking along here at work (or down the street, or through our mail) and we see something that is so delightful and desirable and new and clever that we smack a big old mental sticky note on it to remind us to share it with you. And sometimes the exact opposite of that happens. Welcome to Doubtblush.
Oh, Bath & Body Works. Really? It isn't that we don't love you - we probably bought enough Rainkissed Leaves to single-handedly skew your sales numbers. And we don't have anything against silly stuff. Gift sets shaped like little bathtubs? Amusing! Variously decorated rubber ducks? Cute! But whoever decided that hand sanitizer called I Love Boys ($1.50) was a good idea? It's not Amusing or Cute so much as Uncomfortable. Do you want people thinking about what that statement has to do with hand sanitizer? Why does VestDude look so scared, anyway?
So until we hear that this substance has been adopted as the minor germkiller of choice by gay college students for sheer force of ridiculous, we're not lifting the Doubtblush label.
