When Pumpkin Spice Goes Wrong — sign of the Pumpkinacolypse



Has pumpkin spice gone too far?

The signs of the coming spice pumpkinocalypse are everywhere you look. While pumpkin spice does go with most foods, it does not go with everything. Be careful. The threshold is nearing. The signs have arrived that warn us it is almost too late. Here is what to watch out for.

Pumpkin-flavored toothpaste

If this was a really good idea, bacon toothpaste would be outselling minty fresh every day of the week. Who wants to brush with something that tastes like food? It would make me want to brush my teeth all over again.

Pumpkin Spice Dog & Cat Shampoo

Before we dress up Fido like a Jack o’Lantern for trick-or-treating, let’s make him smell like one, too! With the costume, we are only messing with Fido’s appearance, as he doesn’t understand enough to know he should be embarrassed. But shampoo? That is messing with one of his strongest senses: smell. I could be confusing to a little guy who thinks everything that smells like food is, in fact, food.

Pumpkin Spice Kitty Litter

When it is affecting our innocent pets, it is a sign that we might be going too far. We need to be asking outrsevels why the pumpkin-spice craze has reached this level? What is the advantage of making your kitty’s poopy tray smell delicious? Now, we have to keep the dog out of it.

Pumpkin-Spiced Toilet Paper

I am just shaking my head right now. So much is wrong with this. Is it the unwanted attention to that body part that now smells like desert? Is the smell of the now-used product really going to improve? Most of all, who wants to test it out? This seems like a case of loving pumpkin spice a bit too much.

Pumpkin-Flavored Pumpkin

Besides redundancy, does anyone really want to eat pumpkin that needs help being pumpkin?

Pumpkin Spice

The rumors are out there. 2016 will be their twenty-year anniversary. They are even talking about reuniting in celebration. However, Gerry, who was known as Posh Spice, may be too busy to attend. Will the four remaining Spice Girls soldier on without her? Or will they add a new member to fill out the harmonies? If they do, will they call her (dare I say) Pumpkin Spice?

If they do: run! Do not stop and smell the pumpkins, just run away as fast as you can.
