Ohio boy sells manly scented candles
MARYSVILLE, Ohio (AP) - A 13-year-old Ohio boy has launched his own line of scented candles meant for men, with fragrances that include bacon, New York-style pizza, sawdust and the smell of a fresh leather baseball mitt.
Hart Main of Marysville in central Ohio says he got the idea for his "Mancans" when he was making fun of his sister for selling candles with girly scents for a school fundraiser. Columbus station WCMH-TV reports he launched his company last Thanksgiving, making the candles using scores of empty cans from soup he donated to a soup kitchen.
Hart says so far he has sold 500 candles for $5 each, both online and at local stores. He says he's made enough profit to buy himself a nice bicycle.

LOL...I'm a bit sick and twisted when it comes to a few things, but if he made one in Detroit Diesel exhaust (specifically Detroit Diesel - there is a distinct difference in scent between those a Caterpillar, or Cummins, or Yammies - I can tell you what engines are in something by the smell of the exhaust!), or red diesel fuel, I'd probably buy one. :)
