Oddity #11

I have mentioned the fake brands a couple of times now. Most of the time the advertising is great and the product is less than great. Sometimes, however, you never try the product because the advertising is perhaps rather unappealing. Such is the case when looking down the aisle with the toothpaste. Where normally you would see brands like "Crest", you see the the word "CRUST" in bold toothy letters. Like I would put that on my teeth!

Ha, ha. I remember you telling me that the Japanese put English words on grocery products too, like greasy,fat spread for margarine. Very funny.

Crust!! Oh man, you've got to bring me back some of that.

How about the "Salty" toothpaste you can buy at the Mihrako? Something we should buy just to say we did.
your teaching buddy...

Interesting - I have enough trouble with toothpaste without putting 'Crust' on them. :) ec

Ha ha ha! That must be Crest's new and improved version! :) "Try the new Crust"! :)

Ahhh.. yes, the Salty toothpaste. I haven't gotten up the courage to try either of them, it is a slightly frightening prospect I am afraid. But I suppose, seeing Wes's enthusiasm I could bring them home as souveniers...
