The Amazing Adventures of the Bonehead Brothers

Garrett and Tyler have been taking some acne medicine that ravages your body. It’s a lot like chemo. There’s no shortage of things that can go wrong. Actually, their side effects have been mild. But they have become LIP BALM conosseurs.

They’ve tried them all: Chapstick, Blistex, Carmex, Burt’s Bees, Nivea, etc.

Evidently, there is one that is a standout – ChapIce. As they were going on and on about how great it is, they also complained that they cannot find it ANYWHERE. They have checked every store and always come away empty handed. Which leads me to question where they got it to begin with. But anyway. They are mad that they can’t find more.

So they decided to take matters into their own hands. They read the fine print on the label and found out it is made at OraLabs. And there was even an address for OraLabs printed on that tiny tube. Lo and behold, OraLabs world headquarters is right here in Colorado. And it is 10 minutes away.

So, they decided to just go down to world headquarters and get some of their favorite lip balm. Who doesn’t do that?

If you want some potato chips, don’t you go down to the Lays factory? Paper? Head on down to the nearest denuded forest. Well, don’t go to the denuded one. It’s too late if you go there. Meat? Head on over to Rancher Bob’s place and ask for a side of beef.

Anyway, they were pretty sure that they would be able to find the ChapIce at the ChapIce factory. They head on over to OraLabs world headquarters and are crushed to see that there is not a single car in the parking lot! The place is completely shut down!

Who would have thought that they would be CLOSED on a Saturday afternoon? I mean with lip balm consumption up, I’m surprised they aren’t running 3 shifts 7 days a week.

I especially loved the incredulous tone when they called from the factory:
“You won’t believe it! We’re here and there is NO ONE. Not a single car here. It’s totally closed!”

Really? Who woulda thought? Life is full of disappointments!
