Burger King Cologne

What could be better to attract your next flame than smelling like a broiled Whopper?

Although the Burger King cologne is currently being offered in Japan, this seemed way too hot a topic to let sizzle out.  Aren't Japanese people who wear "Flame Grilled" cologne (US $40.00) fearful of being hounded by hungry mutts?  Or what about, "Honey, you really need to spend less time at Burger King!" But it's my new "spicy" cologne!  I just picked it up this evening to get that desired "grilled beef-burger smell." Let's not give the NFL any gift ideas for tailgating parties...

Tropical Storm Talim (泰利) Slams Taiwan

Hope everyone is okay.  As reported in the China Post:

http://www.chinapost.com.tw/taiwan/national/national-news/2012/06/19/344822/CWB-issues.htm
