I found this bottle sitting in the break room. The bottle's filled with lovely lavender lotion. But I find their advertising extremely ironic. First off, the Dead Sea was not gradually formed over the course of "25 million years." Oh baby: just the opposite! You really can't find a more catastrophic event! This was a condemned place!!!
I think they should call this "Mrs. Lot's Lotion." Most people will think they're getting "a lot of lotion." The 3% that are familiar with Abraham's extended family will get the reference, and be able to make a more informed decision.
