A New Brunswick principal has stepped in after a series of "Axe fights" that are not nearly as dangerous as they might sound.
Students at Nashwaaksis Middle School in Fredericton are not wielding hatchets, but small 155-ml spray cans of Axe deodorant body spray.
The recent scent skirmishes have prompted principal Alan Atkins to order students to stop wearing the smelly spray.
Mr. Atkins said some students were showing up reeking of it first thing in the morning while others would sometimes squirt each other with it on the way back from gym class. "If they get into squirting it on one another, like an 'Axe fight' as they all call it, that's a whole other different issue," Mr. Atkins said. "That's a discipline issue more than anything else."
The boys were obviously taking notes from the company's overtly sexual marketing campaigns that promote the "Axe Effect," whereby women become powerless to the effects of the deodorant's scent.
We need not fear for these boys' masculinity if they're getting into gross-out fights to see who stinks the worst with it. Good to see them fighting back against the feminizing tendencies of the modern school system!
