    My personal threat level is inversely proportional to my caffeine level.

    About 10 years ago, archeologists unearthed the texts of the oldest comedy sketch known to man performed by the ancient Greeks. They dubbed it the “Dead slave” sketch because it, ironically was very similar to the Monty Python “Dead Parrot” sketch. A later version of it was actually mentioned as a joke in the musical “A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum” A man buys what turns out to be a bum virgin after buying a defective eunuch.

    That perfume list – and I say it as a perfume-o-phile – is actually pretty good. I love Messe de Minuit, though I haven’t seen a bottle for sale in ages.

    My favourite ‘dark’ perfume is Caron Narcisse Noir. I always wear that one for funerals.
