Welcome to anther (the first) edition of oddly named products. Today we’re talking about Butt Paste. You may have seen it in your local store in the baby products aisle.
It’s real intention is for use as a diaper rash ointment. What it sounds like is a way for parents to glue their child’s cheeks together.
“Tired of your kid pooping all the time? Want freedom from dirty diapers? Look no farther, Butt Paste is your answer. A few drops and your child will be sealed for a week.”
Not exactly a bestselling name. Maybe they were trying to describe both its function and consistency? Perhaps they were fans of paste in kindergarten (who wasn’t, it was delicious). Or maybe they just wanted an attention grabbing name.
Whatever the cause, it’s an …interesting name to say the least.
