Axe Body Spray Nearly Axes Boy To Death, Gets Axed From School

Illustration for article titled Axe Body Spray Nearly Axes Boy To Death, Gets Axed From School

Sometimes it's easy to get fed up with all the injustice in the world, but sometimes people get it right.


In this edition of the Sweet Smell of Justice Served (it's just a little series I'm starting, get ready) (you'll never hear about this again), we head to Pennsylvania, where Axe Body Spray just got the axe (sorry) (NOT) from Freedom High School because it nearly caused an axe murder when it sent a kid to the hospital. Yes, Axe Body Spray sent a child to the E.R.

I bet nobody's surprised to hear that Kim Jong-il holds the patent for Axe Body Spray, and it's actually designed as a weapons-grade irritant that the North Korean army will unleash upon Los Angeles sometime soon. Oh wait, that's already happened. Now, he's set his beyond-the-grave sights on bigger targets: rural (?) Pennsylvania.


The unnamed student had an extreme allergic reaction after exposure to Axe. Thankfully, the student is doing fine, and also thankfully, it prompted the school to post what's probably the best thing that's ever been on a school's website:

The purpose of this posting is to make all parents, staff and students aware of a medical issue involving a Freedom High School student having an extreme allergy to Axe Body Spray. This allergy is potentially life threatening for this student. Most recently this student has been transported to the hospital by ambulance for emergency medical treatment due to this student being exposed to Axe Body Spray while attending school.

My request to all Freedom Family members is that we take into consideration this student's allergy to Axe Body Spray and refrain from using it as your cologne or fragrance of choice while attending Freedom High School.

On behalf of this student's family and myself, thank you for your consideration.

Freedom High is serious — they'd rather smell the pungent natural funk of hormonal teens, than deal with the chemical death funk of Axe Body Spray. That's saying something.

It should also be noted that this school is putting on a production of Les Miserables this spring. Can you hear the people sing?

For those of you curious about how little of something is fatal, I am allergic to formic acid. It is in manufactured cigarettes. It is also in ant venom. Ant bites will cause my bitten limb (all of it) to swell up. Second hand smoke can, and will, send me into anaphylactic shock. In fact, I had an incident on February 15th for that exact reason. I walked into someone's cloud at the front door of a hotel and immediately collapsed. Luckily, trained paramedics were on scene already, and I am not dead.

I fully and completely believe that it doesn't have to be that much, but with the way teens douse themselves in it, it's not even surprising.
