The Early Morning Smell of Victory

Some folk like to hang a little plastic tree dangler in their car, to create the aroma of fresh pine. I'd like to try The Early Morning Smell of Victory in mine. (probably only once)

Instead of the tree, it's bomb shaped, smells of napalm, especially first thing in morning, and is endorsed by Robert Duvall. (marked-for-total-self- indulgence)

       Makes a great gift for veterans!   

       I'd like a certain kind of bomb for my car. By the way, can it be pineapple-scented?   

       (This product shouldn't be given to elderly veterans. They might have a memory lapse, slam into the McDonald's and pull out a gun.)

       Pin release activated.   

       I'd take it surfing with me, but... Consul don't surf.

       I'd like an avgas car freshener, please.

       Would it also play Ride of the Valkyries?

       I'm not allowed any more Apocalypse word plays... though I'm always tempted. eg If you were to dance to a certain style of Afro-Caribbean music in the middle of a swamp, as you slowly sank below the surface, would this be called doing A Bog Calypso?

       Errr... this is baked. But not on a commercial basis.   

       Pyrotechnicians tend to refer to it as "petrogel" these days, as when you tell the civvies that those white plastic tubs are filled with napalm (which by the way is a registered trade mark) they get all pale and nervous. Since most of them don't know what petrogel is they merely nod and smile, not wishing to reveal their ignorance.   

       Other options for vehicle fragrancing from the same product line include:   

       Spent 155mm shell casings (ooooh.... the smell of Cordite)
100mm firework mortar tubes.

       Some people actually go to their equipment storage units during the winter months and sniff the mortar tubes and remember the heady days (or rather nights) of summer, the roar and boom of shells, the hiss of rockets, the crackle of roman candles.   

       These people are very sad and need to get out more. We do not wish to be assocaited with them in any way.
