Do not use for personal hygiene

It's a really useful warning for a toilet brush, isn't it?

That reminds me of an article in my college newspaper (a decade ago, but somehow I haven't forgotten it) about tryouts to be the team mascot. Each candidate got in the hot furry suit and was given various implements to perform with. One was a toilet brush, and in the tryout, the candidate used it like a toothbrush, brushing the mascot's teeth.

I wonder if he or she is scarred for life, perhaps even dead? That would explain the warning label. :-)

Wow, I posted a comment here on the same subject! He referenced the same article, too.

Warning signs tend to be just protection from lawsuits for manufacturers these days. The ignorant among us still do the same silly things, warning or not.

I think the story spread around the blogosphere pretty quickly that day.
