Warning, this will give away the joke!!!
|We hope to God
you've figured it out by now.
If you haven't, be aware that Allied Chemical, as we've presented it here, does not exist. Other than the music section (which actually does offer quality sound files featuring wonderful artists) the products offered on this site are jokes. Your dream of a grilled Farmer Fred's Happydale Hamspread sandwich prepared using All-Purpose Spray with a cold Blobster salad on the side cannot be realized. Joe McCarthy never condemned us (as a matter of fact, he died two years prior to the date we indicate in the History section). Alex Ray is not coming to your town on his book-signing tour. Get over it.
And for those of you smarty-pants out there thinking to yourselves "who could possibly be taken in by this?" -- people have been taken in. We've got the resumes and requests for sulfur hexaflouride to prove it. Apparently, a pig wearing a fez is not as unlikely a corporate mascot as we first thought.
It should go without saying (but unfortunately still may be necessary to say) that we are in no way associated with any other company, large or small, past or present, named Allied Chemical.
