You know that hilarious song in Gilbert and Sullivan’s Mikado where the Lord High Executioner sings about all the people he’s got on his list who won’t be missed? You know, “people who eat peppermint and puff it in your face,” and “children who are up in dates and floor you with ’em flat,” and “the idiot who praises, in enthusiastic tone, all centuries but this, and every country but his own.” It always concludes with “they’ll none of them be missed.”
Well, I realize that the era is most likely responsible for the oversight, but I’d really like to know why the people who make mattress pads with kleenex for the sides were not mentioned. They would not be missed. Also, whoever it was that dreamed up that horrific removable plastic yucka-do thing on the base of toilets that covers the screws. Seriously, not missed.
But on a brighter note – something that can give us hope that these grievous things will be remedied someday – have you all seen the new flat bottomed taco shells? Talk about progress! They stand up by themselves, fill easily, and clearly do not take any more work to make. Brilliant. Also, a big shout-out to the great minds behind the Clorox Toilet Wand. I don’t want them to think that we don’t appreciate the thought that went behind keeping us from needing to touch toilet brushes. Gone are the days when you have to put that wet grody thing somewhere. What a victory.
