Stop Eating Belts
Wednesday, January 04, 2006
I was in the bathroom the other day when inspiration hit me:

"I know what people want to read about! Bacteria!"

"Bingo!", I hear you think out loud to yourself.

When a person relieves themself in the restroom, or I suppose anywhere they choose, they must shift their clothing in some manner. When they are finished, the aforementioned clothing must be shifted back to a position that will prevent criminal charges. After the post-shift, some people choose to wash their hands.

Point: You unshifted your clothes before washing your hands. This means that some of those cooties you diligently scrub off are domiciling in your shifted clothes. Not sanitary, but you'll likely wash your clothes before wearing them again.

Now. Think about any belts that belong to one of these events. When is the last time you washed a belt?

Isn't that gross?

Wow as if I wasn't paranoid enough about germs and not touching anything in a bathroom...

This is precisely why I've decided to stop using the restrooom.

A few notes: If I had a single square of TP for every time I've said the first sentence in your post to myself, I'd be Charmin double-rolling it up.

Secondly, the phrase "post-shift" has one too many f's.

Ya know... I thought about making a "shift" joke, but thought I should avoid such obvious toilet humor in my family-oriented blog.

Think of the children.

True story: A few years ago, I came up with what I thought was a kick-ass company name - Shift One Technologies. The logo would be a stylized exclamation point. The problem occurred when I went to register the domain name and saw what www.shiftone.com looks like in a browser window.

Ultimately I decided to can the idea (oh my ribs) but I always wondered how many accidental hits I'd get from the pervs out there who can't type.

And, because I can't help myself: Surely your family can take a little shift every once in awhile.

Humor, clean:
I want to work for Shift Four Technologies.

Humor, toilet:
You should call your company Shift Eater instead. That would drive more traffic.

A belt walks into a bar. He says to the bartender, "I'll have a Long Island Iced Tea, 2 Buds, a shot of Tequila, and...." The bartender interrupts him and says, "Hey, hold up."



I just made that up.

Subtle walks into a bank brandishing a leather strap with a buckle on one end and yells, "This is a belt!"

Alanis and Freckles walk into a bar. Freckles spots a mutual friend and says, "Hey, it's Irony." Alanis inquires, "Isn't it Ironic?"
