I wonder what it smells like...

While websurfing, I happened to somehow find this weird thing. It's called "Anti Monkey Butt Powder."

For those of you who apparently have a problem with Monkey Butt issues.

I rarely have issues with monkey butt. I tend to swerve into the realm of horse's ass quite frequently though.

Just sayin....

Later Y'all.

When I was heavily into bike riding (like riding the 172-mile MS150 from Houston to Austin), I bought plenty of "Butt Butt'r" which is, as you can guess, butter for your butt.

Hey don't knock this stuff it really works. I sprinkled it around the house and haven't seen a monkey butt since.

Janna said...

Melon: I'm not sure they make a powder for that....

Whall: Eww! Wouldn't that make you slide right off the bike and into the path of an oncoming semi?

Angry: I wonder where they all went!

Monkey butt is what andy and his buddies call the rashy condition they get after 8 hours on a bike. Never heard of the powder though. He uses desitin (probably wouln't want me telling the whole world). Butt butter is more expensive, I think.

He's done lots of MS150s. Several other 100 mile plus rides and a few Ride The Rockies... which are 5 day long rides. Twice he rode the triple bypass which is three mountain passes and something like 150 miles in one day. No wonder he's impossible to keep up with.

Yep, my hubby and his bike buddies buy this stuff by the butt-load (sorry, couldn't resist!). Alternatively he uses vaseline or even baby powder with cornstarch. Much better than getting a nasty butt rash from all those miles he rides!

Janna said...

Marilyn: So if I moved to Colorado, I could hear this sentence for the first time: "Hey, guys, let's put on some Desitin and do a triple bypass!"

EvilGenius: I just don't get how these ointment-type things would help. They might prevent a rash, but wouldn't they make you all slippery? Wouldn't you slide off the bike? And wouldn't it melt into the seat of your pants when you sweated, making it look like you'd had an unfortunate bladder control incident (or worse)? Please enlighten me, all you tough biker dudes out there.

I will enlighten you of these things.

The "butter" is for going between one's rump and one's biker shorts. None of the butter goes on the bike or the seat, unless it dribbles out due to too much slathering.

Janna said...

Whall: Yes, I figured it went inside the shorts instead of outside, but still it seems like you'd slide around. If the answer is "Well, you don't put that much on," then how can it be enough to protect you from anything?
Strange...
I almost want to become a hot biker chick, just so I can test this out.

Marilyn said...

There's this big absorbent butt pad in the shorts. They Don't all have those cute butts. It just looks like it. Like football pads for cyclists.

Janna said...

Marilyn: Strange.... and this padding isn't enough to keep them from getting rashes and blisters? They need other powder or butter or goop added onto it? I never knew...

I was once tea bagged by a monkey. You would think it's gross but I was too busy being scared for my life that I couldn't think of anything else.

Janna said...

Dr.Zibbs: Be sure to include that in your autobiography! And put a picture of it on the front cover.

I just saw a display of this product at Rural King.
I guess farmers get Monkey Butt.

Morgen: Especially banana farmers!
