Hoboken parents concerned about WAHH mouth spray

Not sure what’s worse. This highly promoted “WAHH Quantum Sensations” that has been making a buzz (no pun intended) on the internet lately – or the fact that a few Hoboken parents are actually concerned about this fruity spray. Hoboken411 received almost a dozen emails from local parents. Here’s the scoop:

“There’s now a way to get a buzz on in just a few seconds – and without the harmful effects (or delicious taste) of alcohol. It’s a mouth spray called WAHH Quantum Sensations,” that’s emitted from a small lipstick-sized aerosol device made by American scientist David Edwards and French designer Philippe Starck, who unveiled the product in Paris last week. One squirt amounts to 0.075ml of booze, the minimum amount needed to make the average brain feel boozy. The rush only last a few seconds and quickly wears off, leaving you sober as a church mouse. Initial plans are to sell the spray in Europe for around $26, and each container is good for 21 alcoholic hits.”

OK, let me see if I understand this.

“The rush only lasts a few seconds.”

Isn’t that the same as holding your breath, or doing those “whip-it” canisters? Who the hell would pay through the nose for a buzz that lasts a few seconds? Would you ride a roller coaster that was 6 feet long? (that question doesn’t apply to midgets, sorry!) Even if you got a 10 second buzz per spray, you’d have to pay close to $500 for an hour worth of “buzz.” My call? FAIL.

Hoboken parents, you have nothing to worry about.
