yes, deodorant serves as a good alternative to pepper spray. this is a question i am constantly being asked by my peers, mainly due to my superior intellect.
your inferior minds may be wondering why, oh great patrick, why does deodorant serve as a good alternative to pepper spray? and that is what i will answer now, in the form of an anecdote.
when i was young, i’d say around 11, i hoped to stink bomb my opponents at school who dared sell chinese oreos at a lower price than me or my employees. i received intel that they were going to tell the principal of my deeds - selling oreos and tim tams for an expensive price and smuggling other contraband (chocolates and jelly beans) onto the school grounds.
to hopefully put and end to this madness i decided to make a stink bomb, a pungeance not even the strongest of noses had the integrity to defend against, the pure musk of male deodorant, and decided first to test it on my sister.
all i needed was a can of deodorant and a small plastic container (at least that’s all i thought i needed) to pull off such a daring feat. i opted to contain a large quantity of deodorant in a small container once full of strips.
i sprayed as much as i could into the container, shook it around, and threw it at my sister’s door, hoping it would ricochet and land at my sister’s feet. the throw worked, yet the container didn’t explode. my sister threw the container back at me in a fit of rage, and still it didn’t explode. i then decided to open the container, hoping i could lift the lid slightly and then it would work, but i opened it, the hinge of the container’s lid facing outwards, and was met with a cloud of deodorant.
it stung my eyes for weeks and tasted horrible.
so yes, deodorant is a good alternative to pepper spray.
