On a budget? Need to smell good? Having difficulty with the ladies? Have no fear, gentlemen. The holy trinity of low-end colognes is here to save you. Each one of these magical potions has laid their respective methodologies out in a clear and concise manner via their brilliant marketing campaigns over the past several decades. Simply slather yourself in any one of these exquisitely scented toilet waters and you'll be so inundated with females you'll have to beat them off with a stick. (Although they'd probably prefer you use something else.) Become man. Man up. Manhandle and manipulate your manhood manpower and manage your manliness like a man, MAN. Let's take a closer look...

1) BRUT
Current Slogan/Marketing Angle: Essence Of Man®. (Click that link, pick your jaw up off the ground, and please continue reading.)

Names That Didn't Make The Cut: Savag, Pour Hobo, Räp.

Old Commercial For This Cologne That Makes Your Scratch Your Head And Vow To Never Wear It:


Famous Spokespeople: Joe Namath (wasted on national TV), Wilt Chamberlain (rumored to have penised ~20,000 women), Elvis (died with his face in a toilet).

Wearing This Cologne Will (Allegedly): Make your girlfriend/wife raid your closet and call you after she's done masturbating.

What This Cologne Supposedly Smells Like: A man.

What This Cologne Actually Smells Like: We squeezed the sweat from an old pair of boxing gloves down your dad's back and through his butt crack (after he got impossibly sweaty while "organizing" the garage for the tenth time this year) and caught it in this three-day-old glass of whiskey, swirled it around and spilled it all over that weird rug in the living room that the cat peed on last Christmas.

Those scents aren't  bad - but if you're looking for better, still cheap, colognes, try any of the following:Pierre Cardin pour homme, Halston Z-14 (evening) or Halston 1-12 (daytime), Drakkar Noir (yeah, they still make it, and it still rocks), Grey Flannel, Stetson, even Jovan Musk.

One of my grandfathers wore Old Spice, the other favored Brut. Perhaps the cologne was cheap, but the nostalgia I feel now is priceless. :-)

Kroeger is pissed......you have insulted the key to Nickelback's success, other than stupid humans. Kroeger will release his own scent: CANADIAN MUSK. Available wherever rape occurs.
