Avon was started in Oceana in the Century of the fruitbat by impotent italian immigrants, attempting to compensate for their lack of heterosexuality by selling cosmetics door-to-door. Soon people started paying them to stay away, and the first protection racket was formed.
Avon now operates under the guidance of the Free Softwear Foundation company.
Avon still sell a wide variety of devices suitable for any old Tom, Dick, or Hairy. Their concrete overcoat, however, is their number one best selling product, despite very limited repeat custom.
