A one-time school project gone terribly, terribly wrong.

Is There a Secular Equivalent to Poe?

Poe's Law states that without some indication of humourous intent, it is impossible to tell a parody of religious belief from an actual one.

I need a secular equivalent--or just to broaden the definition, to make room for stuff like this year's hot gift for men:
Still can't think what to get him for Christmas? Socks don't seem to cut it any more? Fret no longer because Burger King is here to help.

The mass purveyor of grilled meat is offering, for a limited time, something even better than their usual piles of beef patties. This week, American men were given the chance to smell like their favourite meat snack with the launch of Flame, Burger King's contribution to the perfume market.

The company describes Flame as "the scent of seduction with a hint of flame-broiled meat".
That's right: For just $3.99, you too can smell like a plane crash in the Dominican Republic.

I don't honestly believe this is real. But if it is, then look for a rise in trailer park dog attacks in 2009.

Actually, I've decided that if this turned out to be real, I shall buy a bottle and begin attending PETA functions wearing nothing else.

Watch out for those pit bulls and watch out for your dangly parts if you do that, Metro.

@silverstar:
Good point. To quote the Bart: "I think I'd better think it out again."
