Ok, so someone kindly bought me something really really REALLY smelly today… And I laughed so hard when I opened it. It’s a candle, but not just any old boring scented candle – it’s a parody scented candle with a scent of … Meerkat Poop in fact…Yep… Meerkat Poop :-/
Firstly, how on earth can anyone know what Meerkat Poop even smells like? And how did they collect the scent!? Regardless, it looked cool once I unwrapped it – and aside from the obvious giveaway label with ‘Meerkat Poop’ written on it, you could have mistaken it for any other high quality scented candle out there on mantelpieces.
Anyhow, I slowly unclipped the air tight lid (pretty sure it is air tight for a very good reason) and stuck my nose inside and you guessed it… it was pretty horrific, but in a funny kind of way (if that makes sense??). Then I was brave enough to light up and take a whiff – WHAM that smell was so bad I had to quickly take it outside so as to not stink out the whole flat for months on end! Nevertheless it’s a quirky funny GAG gift which made me smile. Thank you http://www.funkycandles.co.uk – you gave me something so…unique… CHEERS!
Now to send it on to someone I really dislike… :-p
The guys over at funycandles.co.uk are pet lovers and also like to give back to the animals they’re mocking. 10% of profits from their sales go towards four different charities across the world, they are:
- RSPCA – who are an animal welfare charity which has been operating to protect cruelty towards animals – they do a great job and deserve every penny they get in donations.
- Blue Cross – is a charity that provides help to owners who do not have adequate pet insurance or simply can’t afford the vet fees for their loved ones.
- Four Paws – is an international charity and concentrates more on wild animals and endangered species.
- Wood Green – is a charity that homes abandoned pets across the country, first set up to tackle the problem in London.
So come on guys, buy a horrible candle today, give it to someone as a fantastic funny gift and while you’re at it, give something back to charity!
