Renuzit Air Freshener Can w/ X-Rated Image?


I have been going through stuff for a garage sale I plan on having sometime soon. 2010 will probably be the date I have it at the rate I'm going. But anyway, I came across these two cans of air fresheners I've had for a long time.

You see, years ago, there was a story going around that a photographer for Renuzit (or Dial Corp.) got fired. He was so irate with the company for terminating his employment, that he took a picture of his dingus amid some flowers and that became Renuzit's new label for their "fresh cut flower" scent. Well, I bought it hook, line and sinker. I thought it had to be true because after realizing something was wrong, Renuzit started selling cans that had the "dingus" covered up with what was supposed to look like a green leaf.

It wasn't until about five minutes ago when I read this that I found out the truth:
Urban Legends Reference Pages: Penis on Renuzit Can

Well, I still say the "flower petal" looks a whole lot like a dingus, or hee-haw, or whatever you call it.

I also realized that I've had these freakin' cans of air freshener since 1995! That's 12 years! I thought I was a mild packrat...I need those British ladies to come help me from How Clean Is Your House. I bet the blonde lady would love to see my Renuzit collection.

I am a florist and 1.The flower in question is a Lily. 2 I haven't ever seen any flower,besides an antherium that had any thing that looked so much like a penis. I have one of those cans myself. I guess I'll just toss it, cause it really is not a nice smell.

Well I just so happen to have the before and after can. When I heard about this I went to a store where they were actually taking them off of the shelves and I purchased one of each and I have them in a safe place and have shown them to many many people. It is a penis, there is no way to deny it, unless you have never seen a penis that is.

I cannot believe I found these comments, it is true this is not a hoax and I can provide pics of both cans side by side...they are pretty full. the smell was aweful anyway.

I got a few cans. That's a straight up peepee, not part of a flower. Veins and everything.

It is true. I use to work at a grocery store called fiesta mart In houston texas. I was asked to assist cops and men that look like " men in black" they came in to confiscate all the cans. They did not want to leave at 1 bottle behind. I finally got one of them to tell me what's going on. That's what he told me about the employee being upset over being terminated and he wanted to stick it to them, so he took a picture of his ding dong and put it in the middle of the flower. The story is true, the company must not want anyone to know, but I know it is true!

This happened inbetween January and July of 1995. I was 18 years old at the time, and working for the Val Stores warehouse in New Castle, IN. We had an entire skid, that was loaded with these cans. We were told not to load the trucks with this product, due to the "penis" image. The skid was returned to the manufacturer. "VERY", true story!!!
