Tom Sloan Cartoon: Fruit Fit for Your Hair

Fruit for your hair. There are so many fruit-flavored shampoos. The strong fruity scent might make you hungry. — Chose one: honey, almond, coconut or peppermint? How about strawberry, wild cherry, sunflower or grapefruit? Sounds yummy. Mix and match these: orange, lemon, sunflower, lavender, macadamia nut and peach. After typing all that, I’m hungry. But these flavors aren’t anything you would want to eat. They are just some of the different kinds of shampoos you can buy.

There are a lot of other shampoo “flavors” out there, too. You can even spice things up with a little cinnamon and nutmeg. But what if we were to do the opposite? Instead of fruit-flavored shampoos, what if we had shampoo-flavored food? For that matter, we could make all kinds of new food flavors. Motor oil steak sauce. Clorox pancake syrup. Petroleum distillates salad dressing. After typing all that, I’m not hungry anymore.

For, I’m Tom Sloan.
