My Amusement for the Day...

So I bought this toothpaste last week at the grocery store. It's Crest Whitening toothpaste and attached is a "Bonus" tube of Cinnamon Crest. Great. I didn't buy it because it had the free extra tube of toothpaste attached, but it was a nice surprise.

So this is how the boxes were packaged together...

I then opened the "bonus" box, figuring we'd use the tube of cinnamon toothpaste first. Inside that box, I found a MUCH smaller box. I kind of laughed, thinking "Those bastards."...


I then opened that box and found the smallest tube of toothpaste I've ever seen in my life. Seriously... this is my "bonus" tube of toothpaste?....


And just so you can see how small it is, here I am holding it in my not-that-large hand...

LOL!! But that cinnamon toothpaste leaves you feeling so refreshed. The citrus breeze, OTH, sucks. Yeah, Jason bought toothpaste last time.

Alien said...

LOL! OMG! Toothpaste should NOT taste like citrus fruit. Dear god...

And I just saw a commercial where they're coming out with another flavor. I can't remember what it is, but it was something repulsive like Vanilla Orange or something...

Lisa said...

Lemon Ice!! LOL, they came out with some vanilla flavor a while ago. It was featured on one of the past Apprentice's.

Alien said...

YES! That was it! Now who the HELL wants their toothpaste to taste like lemons? Ewwwww!

The cinnamon toothpaste is really good...it's got such a bite it makes my eyes water. Maybe buy a tube that's not midget-sized, LOL.

The orange flavoured toothpaste is just wrong.

Mary said...

Um allison you've never heard of travel sized toothpaste?? That's what the cinnamon one looks like...

That is pretty devious of Crest, but what do you really expect from a big company. Bastards

Alien said...

LOL! Yes Mary. I have heard of travel size toothpaste. The point is that it was IN a normal sized box. LOL! Dork. ;)

EE said...

ROFLMAO!!!!!!!!! That is hysterical. What an awesome "bonus" you scored. Yeah you!!!

Melissa said...

I am PIMP that you took the time to photograph the boxes and tube to illustrate your point. That's as bad as photographing a misquito next to a penny...um, not that I know anyone who ever did that.

Alien said...

LOL Melissa. I was um, avoiding working. [blush]

Melissa said...

Already? Didn't you just start working again? LMAO.

Alien said...

Yes. Yes I did just start working again. Old habit die hard, my friend.

Richard uses the Cinammon kind. I don't care for it. I use the Vanilla Mint and he doesn't care for that! LOL!

Bonus doesn't necessarily mean big. *sigh* They should just print on the outside, "Travel/sample toothpaste included." Again, bastards. LOL!
