We didn’t like it when the government used our tax dollars to buy General Motors. Not at all. But we kept our fingers crossed and hoped the company would use the money and its bankruptcy to trim the fat, advance innovation, and win back market share.
No such luck.
The latest product out of General Motors is – we hope you’re sitting down – a cologne.
Yup, General Motors, fresh out of bankruptcy court, will is introducing “Cadillac,” a fragrance for men.
“Cadillac” combines the fresh scent of grapefruit and camomile plus an olio of geranium, tarragon and cinnamon. And don’t forget the sweet spice and incense.
Our comments: (1) If GM wanted a more appropriate scent, “Cadillac” would combine the smell of money with the stench of death. (2) Obama must have appointed a Sleazy Scent Czar while we weren’t looking. (3) Look for a product line extension called “Oldsmobile” that smells like your father.
