18h45 UTC; FRIDAY, 8 NOVEMBER 2013: For some reason, Your Correspondent, while looking through the catalog of Chicago's legendary Merz Apothecary, known online as Smallflower.com, included with a recent order therefrom, couldn't help but notice where a number of brands therein featured seem to have that certain whimsical-sounding quality as make them potential objects of curiosity to the online shopper.

Hopefully enough to make you consider doing some serious online shopping for once from this post, if not so much the Online Mall. Especially with Festive Season and its gift exchange possibilities coming up.

(Before I proceed, just a caveat or two here to keep on the safe side of the law: First, please know that this weblog, as an affiliate of Smallflower.com, earns a commission when you make a purchase or two by way of links in this post or from its Online Mall link, all opening new browser windows. Second, no gifts, cash or other consideration was offered in advance for influencing blog post content. And third, you're urged to make your own judgments on the relative merits of the products in question before buying; too, be aware that certain statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration, nor have the products in question been shown to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any illness, ailment or disease.)

Try substituting the silver dragees in your holiday baking with these--
and imagine the reaction of your friends thus caught off-guard!

Just try saying the very name "Mysore Sandal Soap" three times fast,
and NOT breaking into laughter at the end.

Just the very word "Concentrada" in the name calls to mind (at least to moi) a certain
Valleyfair radio commerical from a few years back for their waterpark area
advertising "Wetter Water!" (Or trying to, at any rate.)

Honestly now: Who wants to wash themselves with charcoal soap and
not risk embarrassment over the fact?

Most unlikely to be the Aggie's laxative of choice, even if
the name sounds rather similar....

Hopefully, not to be confused with the "Do-Bee"
on Romper Room all those years ago....

Which of these would YOU trust, reader, for relief
of headache and nasal congestion
without the side effects of OTC pills or sirups?

Isn't it time you got to know that "MAAAAAHHHHH-velous" toothpaste?

Honestly, isn't this SpongeBob's kind of soap?

Unlikely to be Auntie Em's kind of cough drop, by any stretch of the imagination....

About the closest we've seen to panaceas this side of the Atlantic,
come to think of it.

Try imagining having actor Kiefer Sutherland's name appended to
this old established German line....

Try finding this one in Osage Beach, MO (as in Lake of the Ozarks)....

Best appreciated unsweetened--or maybe with honey at most.

Dedicated to such specimens of Literal Men (unlike so-called "Girly Men")
who believe in "keeping it real--Musgo Real."

"Another small house is finished in the next block"
(to Engrishfy the closing remarks on every episode of the "slice-of-life"
radio series Vic and Sade through the years)
