Off-Topic: PSP Wants YOU to Have a Non-Disturbing Oral Hygiene Experience



Oh, sure, it seemed like a good idea at the time! Browsing the shelves, I thought, "Why not try Colgate's fun watermelon toothpaste for kids?"

I'll tell you why not! It's really, really sweet. It has no minty "bite" to it. The end result is feeling like you're brushing your teeth with Jell-o™. Warm Jell-o™. OMG, so gross!

That is all.

Could be worse, have you ever tried brushing with pudding?

Note to anonymous: I appreciate tips, but would you believe that I do, in fact, keep up on the big Condi stories?

In other words, it's great when people alert me to Condinews in unexpected places, but it's a little insulting when they alert me to NY Times acticles.

Hey, kids! Let's brush our teeth with pure sugar! that should keep the dentist away!

Princess Sparkle Pony said...

Ew, that's part of the problem, that it's not just super sweet, but super fake sweet, positively bursting with saccarine or aspertame or whatever.

Oh Princess, remember when they used to put what looked like glitter in toothpaste? Maybe you should go back to that.

PSP, I assume you are referring to the McClellan story. It was not a tip or an alert to you. It was comment...nothing more, nothing less about the insaneness of this administration.

Thank you for saving my toothbrush from my fruity impulses.

OMG, I almost referred you to an article in the Post today (which mentioned Condel's science advisor). I am so glad I restrained myself, and avoiding a public Pony scolding.

Let me tell you that those Colgate BAM-Emeril-plugged "flavors" are no better. It's like mint plus jello, with something sparkly thrown in to try to jazz it up. Such a lame (and icky) attempt at glitter.

Yikes. I once got lured in with blue toothpaste with glitter in it.
You really had to rinse like crazy with that stuff.

Had hangover. Ran out of my toothpaste. Had to use kids' SpongeBob toothpaste.

Prayed for the sweet release of death.

Ahem, since this virtually never comes up, I strongly encourage exploration of the Aquafresh Extreme Clean line, especially the Whitening Mint Experience.

It has certain, um, adult applications that people spend good money on elsewhere to reproduce with various warming unguents and tinctures of dubious origin.

1) Find someone(s)
2) Brush teeth with above
3) Reap the benefits of a hygenically clean and decidedly tingly palate

I doubt that is the "experience" they were advertising, but nonetheless, dental care was never so much fun. (I blush)
