In a perfume factory, a representative of the company led reporters on a tour.
“Here we have our Spritzee feeding centers. As you can see, the Spritzee have plenty of room to move but they’re all in separate terrariums based on their diets.”
A Spritzee handler handed one to the representative. “This little fellow is fed on a diet of strawberries, and as you can smell this gives them a fresh strawberry scent.”
As the tour continued a reporter asked about a big steel door they passed.
“We’re working on exciting new fragrances in there, but it’s secret right now. Our scientists have to study the Spritzee to make sure they can digest the food we feed them, so it takes time. Though I can’t say much, I can tell you we’re researching the possibility of a chocolate Spritzee fragrance.”
As the tour continued the reporter who’d inquired about the door slowed down until they were at the back of the group. They ducked past a corner and into a hidden spot where they threw on a lab coat uniform for the company and headed back into that restricted access door.
The next day the news had an exposé: the Spritzee Perfume Company was feeding Spritzee poisons mixed from Stunky fluid, Koffing gas, and dragon scales. This created noxious Spritzee they sold to police and military units for tear gas and smoke bombs.
I’d like to say that the Spritzee Perfume Company was shut down and investigated after this, but let’s be real, all that happened was they paid a modest fine and promised not to do that anymore, while obviously five months later they were doing it again in another location. Obviously.
