I lost my last Chap-Stick from America today and I was about to go crazy. It took me an hour to find another one because I found out they only sell them at the pharmacies. Not even good old 7-11 had them.
Have you ever wondered about Chap-Stick? I mean really just thought it through. I started using chap-stick at a very young age. I want to say middle school. And if I remember correctly at that age, I was using it whenever I got dry lips. At first, I only got chapped lips in the winter. And then it turned into whenever the seasons changed. Now it is everyday, if not every hour! Now it seems like I need to apply Chap-Stick everyday IN ORDER TO NOT get chapped lips. Do you see where I’m getting at?
What once was before, the remedy for chapped lips, now seems like to reason for chapped lips. It’s like that one Batman movie, where the Joker develops make-up for everyone and it makes them absolutely beautiful. But the more they used it, the more addicted their faces got to it. And it came to the point where if they did not use the make-up, their faces would start melting. So ultimately, consumers were forced to buy the product.
The question now I bring forth to you is this: Is Chap-Stick and other
chap-stick type companies adding addictive substances to their products
in order to get us to buy them all the time? Let’s look back to the tobacco companies. How about Coca-Cola when they first started out. I can see the lawsuits pouring in now. In this day and age where one person can sue McDonalds because their stupid ass burned their lips from the coffee, then I think I can get a few dollars out of this one.
