BS repellent

I once had a sales rep stop by my office and he left me a can of "Dr. E. Howard Zepnik's BS repellent".  I can't tell you how many times it came in handy over the years.  Unfornuately, it's empty now.  If anyone knows where I can get more of htis magical potion, I'm interested!!

@Rcurl: I once had a sales rep stop by my office and he left me a can of "Dr. E. Howard Zepnik's BS repellent".

I'd like a can of that also -- it strikes me that there would be a market for a rack holding say 6 small cans each marked with a different label. So we already have:

    #1 Jinx Remover

    #2 BS Repellant

What would we have for #3 through #6?

Some general-purpose anti-bug spray would be useful, preferably without DDT.

@betajet: Not being from the USA, I'd not heard the "Quick, Henry, the Flit!" before -- thanks for sharing.

I must admit that I do like the idea of a "Bug-B-Gone" spray. OK, that can be #3 of our six-can collection ... but what about cans #4, #5, and #6?

@Max....not sure it is sprayable, but rocking horse poo always comes in handy...so when someone comes and says "I can't find any XXXXX, it's like rocking horse s***, you can say "Well I've got that, now go and find some XXXXX !!

Well, I know these are supposed to be fictious items, but it just dawned on me that a can of Marvel Mystery Oil would fit right in. Every time I changed the oil in my old Aerostar van I added a few ounces of the stuff.  I gave the van away four years ago with 400,000 miles on the original engine...and it's still running today.

 

If you're not familiar with this mysterious concoction, look here: http://www.marvelmysteryoil.com/

 

By the way, here's what's in it: The product is composed of 74 percent mineral oil, 25 percent stoddard solvent, and 1 percent lard.

@sixscrews: OK - here are my suggestions...

I like #4, I love #6 .... not so sure about #5

If we get more and more suggestions, we can always add more cans to our hypothetical rack...
