What's wrong with my Butt? Anti Monkey Butt

"What is wrong with my butt?" Katie thought that was a hilarious question. It was prompted by the container of Anti Monkey Butt that my mother-in-law had produced.

Before we go any further - let's be fair here. It's nothing new for my mother-in-law to have strange things. Remember, this is the same person who gave me a birthday present she had no idea what it was until we figured out it was supposed to be a bagel slicer. This is also the woman who has never looked a gift horse in the mouth or something that is free after rebate and not bought it. She would be so surprised at how much she has in common with my dad. He has never met a rebate he didn't like either.

So there my Mom-in-law is, strolling down the aisle of a drugstore (which will rename nameless) with a sale circular in her hand. She sees the free after rebate section and it has something called Anti Monkey Butt powder. Never mind that she has never heard of this powder before and has no idea what it is for - its free after rebate - how can you turn that down....?

Needless to say - she bought it (and got the rebate) and now it was my turn to be on the receiving end. "Mom - is there something you are trying to tell me? Is my butt that big and red? Or worse - do you smell butt sweat?" It made a great joke and I should apologize to her - we did make some fun of her for buying something she had no idea what it was for.

Yes - it is a real product - a cross between Talcum powder and Gold bond with Calamine powder in it. It was invented by motorcyclist and they swear by it. And yes - mom did try it. I think it may become a display on one of my shelves though.
