Donut Cologne

Stan Freberg here. Among the many colognes given for Mother's Day, I'll wager that "Donut Cologne" was not among the most popular aromas; and yet, such a cologne, with the smell of donuts, now exists! After this.[:60 SPOT BREAK]

Freberg again. Recently an edict was handed down by the police chief in Quebec City, Canada, that policemen were not to be seen taking their breaks in donut shops--hmm--and policemen there are understandably grumbling.

The detested decree was issued after an internal investigation concluded that it was necessary to change the image of donut-eating police officers. The policeman's union there is objecting. "This new rule is childish!" fumes union spokesman Andre Durocher.

Maybe in lieu of eating actual donuts, the policemen missing the smell should try splashing on a new cologne, just introduced in Oxnard, California. It smells like cinnamon and freshly-baked donuts! The bottle is shaped (what else?) like a chocolate donut, and the label reads "10-7," which, to a policeman, means "break time." Policemen in California are reportedly splashing it on.

I guess not too many sons gave that to their mother for Mother's Day, unless of course their mom was a policewoman--uh, I mean "policeperson."

Hey! It's the smell of donuts without the calories!
