Clean hands can prevent the spread of germs???!?!?!

So, first off.... I was in a kinda shitty mood most of the day today...not sure why, really, but at any rate....

I came across this sign on the men's restroom outside of our lab:



I'm sure some people probably thought,

"Hey, thanks for the reminder! I don't want the flu!"...

But my initial response was,

"Thanks a fuckload, you fucking assholes!"

I'm glad that University Health Services finds it necessary to spend time, money, and paper on informing graduate students and PhDs that the flu can be spread by not washing your hands.

Thanks. Assholes.

Anyway... I took some time out of my busy work schedule today to create this little gem, which I hope will provide some additional reminders for the research staff in our building on how to stay flu-free this season:

When we were in Cali we noticed signs everywhere about water conservation. But nobody seems to pay attention...not unless it's convenient. In our hotel we kindly hung our towels, like the sign asked, so that the maid would not replace them...but she did anyway. And one day our waitress at the breakfast joint went through an entire spiel about asking if we wanted water instead of just bringing it in order to conserve. Next day, same waitress, busier breakfast she couldn't pour the water without us asking for it, fast enough.

What if I wear a tongue condom? Is that called a dental dam? Can I lick to my heart's content, then?

kat: yeah, those are in the restrooms all over campus, too... but you know, spend 20 seconds washing your hands to offset us telling you to conserve water...

ubie: Yes, but only if you wash your hands after you take it off/before you put it on.

I just got in to work; i forgot to mention in the post that i also stuck a post-it note to the original sign that said 'thanks, mom'.

Somebody took it down.

No one seems to appreciate me when I'm being a total dick.

Weird.

Does that mean that after 20 seconds people can lick each other?

No one will stop me from licking people.

No one.

TastyMcJ said...

yes, science would dictate that after 20 seconds, licking is safe.

whoa.i would have felt the same way.

on every lab room door in at UDub there were signs that said, "Please put instruments away"
and "Please throw trash in the trash bins". We all hated those signs. In fact we would rip them off whenever we felt like it so they figure it out and stopped posting them.

Maybe someone licked me without me knowing because I seem to have a terrible throat problem rightnow. Arg.
