The town of Belton, Texas, has experienced the outbreak of an affliction typically confined to junior high boys’ locker rooms. After a truck carrying cases of body spray exploded Friday morning, the town between Austin and Waco on the I-35 corridor was plagued by the presence of thousands of cans of Axe. (That’s, like, a year’s supply for a 13-year-old, right?)
As you’ve likely guessed, the snarky middle school humor immediately followed on Twitter.

A truck carrying Axe body spray exploded all over a highway in Texas and a Junior High Dance spontaneously popped up.— Yatesy (@yatesy75) September 2, 2018
“Women passing within scent of the truck were seen to reflexively put headphones on and spontaneously mention that they have boyfriends.” https://t.co/kqExP9wkQ9— skullsinthestars (@drskyskull) September 2, 2018
It’s been two days since that truck with @AXE blew up on I35 and it still smells like bad decisions throughout Belton— Mr. Blah Blah (@JorgiePoorG) September 2, 2018

Fortunately, no one was injured in the fire, nor by the subsequent explosions of projectile deodorant, but the highway remained closed for eight hours. All credit to the first responders for containing the damage.
