People, we hate to report stuff like this, but you should know that every single Ricky's location in New York is sold out of Flame, the burger-scented body spray. The cologne, formulated to smell like "the scent of seduction with a hint of flame-broiled meat" (i.e. a teenage boy who just ate a Whopper), went on sale December 15, and by yesterday it was gone. We've heard conflicting reports about restocking; some locations believe they'll be getting more today, but we've also heard a rumor that the Flame vats are literally empty.
