I don't want chicken soup-imbued kleenex.

Duh. Maybe Tim would like a Havana-flavored hanky?

No it doesn't. I makes it thicker, stronger and/or softer. Being
one-and-a-half times larger makes it one-and-a-half times larger.

Now they're feminine-gender-challenged-sized.

This is by far the silliest misuse of the language in the article. "To sate"
means "to cloy with overabundance", "to appease (as a thirst or violent
emotion) by indulging to the full." They're not even aloe-saturated, or they'd
make you goopier than you were.
This is the problem with using "vocabulary enhancement" techniques. Better to
use a dictionary and avoid flashy but inappropriate words. IMHO.
