Random pictures

Okay, time to hit the mailbag for stuff you guys have sent in.


First there's this restaurant's hours:





Then there's this fairly generic news item, until you get to the end of the 3rd paragraph:






Here's a mouthwash label. Because nothing sounds better than saying it tastes "acceptable:" 






 When "supreme" isn't good enough for your urethra, there's always "supremium."

"Hey, how am I supposed to take this?"

 

Lastly, here's an advertisement for medical lubricant. For the life of me, I have no idea what they're trying to market with this image.

Either you're supposed to pick your surgeon by whether they were a soapbox derby winner or this is a subtle ad for using the lube as a cheat on a soapbox derby car.

Surgilube® is really useful for getting those capsules into the urethra.

I'm looking at the packaging for this mouthwash and thinking, "Bacteria? Viruses? Fungi? Check!" They're included at no additional cost.

The very *best* you can say about Betadine mouthwash is "acceptable".

Well, it's not all that bad as a mouthwash, I guess. Somewhere there's truth in advertising, I suppose. Here, we use the idodine compound as a surgical scrub, and I do mean SCRUB; scrub everywhere there's an orifice and then some, but that's just my interpretation... Ordinarily, mouthwashes at 98% alcohol are too beastly in the stinging department to care much at all if it has a taste, per se or not.

Scratching my head about some of the others, though. Perhaps, as Moose suggests, two kids in full-soapbox regalia is meant to evoke (invoke?) images of an old-fashioned soapbox derby, but how it relates to Surgilube is beyond me. When I think of gravity and kids in close proximity to gravel or dirt roads, mercurochrome or betadine comes to mind, not lubricating jelly.

Interesting descriptors about those census blocks in PA....
calling 'Betadine' mouthwash 'acceptable' in taste is stretching credulity - tho it may have a market share for those folks who are germ phobic. Wonder if it stairs your lips and teeth brown?
Surgilube makes everything slide in faster...capsules, tubes, little drug impregnated wax bullets...maybe it makes surgeons faster?

The American Community Survey, for those who don't know, is this thing where the Census Bureau randomly chooses your address and then forces you, for no compensation, to spend a lot of your time and effort filling out a form that's about twice as long as the GRE and that asks you all kinds of personal and intrusive questions. "Anal penis" is probably one of the most common answers that people give.

The Betadine folks are really trying to capture the market there. I guess they haven't really recovered from that article about how much superior chlorhexidine is.... (I was in medical school then, and the rapidity with which all the iodine swabs in the ORs were replaced with chlorhex would make your head spin!)

The mouthwash stained my rayon shirt.
