    Deep Freeze

    Nope, not the weather but the cold gel that people rub into their aching and hurting joints and muscles.

    Contents:
    Racemic Menthol 2%
    Isopropyl alcohol
    Carbomer
    Triethanolamine (85%)
    Methyl Hydroxybenzoate E218
    Propyl Hydroxybenzoate E216
    Patent Blue V E131
    Purified Water


    The stuff is really soothing, smells pleasant, nothing overbearing like some sports sprays and gels that produce the effect of heat. I had just massaged by poor aching foot with some of Deep Freeze and was happily relaxing by sitting on the floor enjoying the cool feeling.

    Why the heck then did my cat walk over to me tonight sniff my foot and BITE it? Just a sniff, sniff HERUNK <img src=/S/flee.gif border=0 alt=flee width=25 height=25>

    Poor Jezza.

    I suspect the answer to your question is fate, or possibly karma.

    The contents must also be the ingredients of cat nip <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    The list of constituents seems remarkably like those of Sheep Dip...!

    Excellent!
    I'll buy some as a cheaper alternative to Sheep Dip then.

    It seems that someone was there before you...!

    And it also reminds me of the (fake) news item about a farm accident which included the line: <big>"The horse was in a stable condition"</big>...

    There was an Australian comedian named Norman Gunston who interviewed visiting celebrities in the 1970's.

    I can remember him offering to give someone his Mum's recipe for sheep dip. I just cant remember who it was. Someone without a sense of humour anyway.
