My DZ Nuts sample has arrived

Came in yesterday's mail
I'm a little sheepish to say I'm kind of excited about it
Guess I'll try it out next Saturday

Oh, don't you dare

It's Dave Zabriskie's (DZ) brand of chamois creme, pronounced "Deez (kind of like Deeg,only different) Nuts"
His slogan is "Protect your junk"

It was the subject of this hilarious review by Fatty:

This was posted here some time ago, I laughed for days.

Did you mean to write "sheepish"? Is that what DZNuts brings to mind?

All I know is that I applied the stuff after taking a shower and that was not a very smart thing to do. I recall ointments from initiations that didn't burn as bad as that stuff did. No way I'd ever try any of that again.
