Two Wild and Crazy Smith Brothers

Hey, all you Romeos out there - take some advice from these suave guys who, clearly, are out for - foxes! And these brothers are always a big hit with girls because - well, just check out those fabulous beards. That's one thing they have going for them. But now, for the first time, Trade and his brother Mark share the other, less obvious secret of their social success with you. Are you ready?

Menthol or licorice cough drops. With VITAMIN A.

Yes, you too can enjoy a successful love life - don't let spreading cold germs hold you back. Even if the ladies don't care for menthol (or licorice) cough drops, your mucous membranes will thank you for all that delicious Vitamin A. Now all the Smith Brothers just need some blue hats and plaid pants.

(loosens collar) - Whew, I'm about to throw in my husband and head over there to get my hands on one of those honeys!

Guess the bearded duo is safe from the likes of me. Whenever I smell menthol, I think "bad cold" instead of "hot date".

Also, it's not nice to spread your germs when you are sick. Yuck!
