Many people don't know this, but MeFi tastes like blueberries, AskMe tastes like mint, and MeTa tastes like burning. Go on, lick your screen and see!

Huh. They just taste like dust to me.

Oh..and no way would I lick a magazine ad.

Depends on the magazine.

Doesn't the adult industry usually lead with new technologies?

I could see the porn magazine industry making a comeback with this.

Why does mine taste like a 9 volt battery?

Because you're licking a 9 volt battery.

Is this what you are licking by chance?

I would create an anti-smoking ad with this :

Wanna know what people taste when they kiss you : Peel and lick.

Do the snozzberries taste like snozzberries?

'Sokay. With two Zs they taste different.

From the article:

(think doctors' offices)

the flap can't reseal, giving people an easy way to know whether the ad has already been licked.

I usually don't never pick up the magazines in doctor's offices because I do not want whatever's going around.

Fixed that for myself.

I never liked the idea of Scratch 'n' Sniff, let alone putting my tongue on glossy paper.

I thought MeTa tasted like ash from all the flameouts.

Problem is, the smokers won't notice that it tastes bad.

My wife bought this issue of People before we got on the plane and was very surprised when she saw me try it out. It wasn't exactly as described in the article, when I opened the flap it was a removable strip just like a Listerine breath strip that dissolves on your tongue.

It's funny you should mention Hustler Magazine. It worked for Bud Light.

I have this comic book character I used to draw while growing up. Never did much with him. One of the things I wanted to do was an issue where a corner of the comic cover was blotter. The whole thing would be blotter art, but one corner would actually have some acid on it.

When can we get ads like that?

Just did some lick testing on my Nintendo DS and iPhone last night. Pocket portable cunnilingus trainer apps: out of the question.

Let me check.

Nope, tastes like bile, sulfur and tears. Narsty.

On the plus side, it's about 80 proof.

Tastes just like the window on the short bus useta taste to me.

If I had encountered one of those ads without having seen this thread, I probably would not have thought twice about licking my magazines. I also eat food that people leave in hallways after meetings though so I guess sanitation isn't a huge priority for me.

I tried this the other day, and it tastes like grapes & aluminum foil.

You know those Fabios they have on those romance novel covers? I always thought they should have them in scratch-and-sniff.

You've got an embossed scratch-and-sniff Fabio on your cover? Oughta sell like hotcakes.

I licked it. It tasted good. Then I had a half hour long panic attack, wondering if someone had maybe tampered with it, even though I bought the magazine new from the back of the stack. I am, however, still alive....

I am not sure if I really care about buying grape juice, supposedly natural, that I can taste on a magazine. I'm going to assume they don't squish real grapes onto the paper.
