Welp, You've ruined MY day. I didn't think I'd have to worry about shaking hands after I retired from prison...NOPE! YUKK!
Sorry Big Mike! Just sharing my uh...valuable knowledge!! (Don't worry, I don't actually know how accurate all this is...mostly trying to gross G out!)
oh god!!!!!!!! now I´ll have to sing the happy birthday twice each day!!!!!!!! :(
My mom told me this when I was in Japan and now I have to mentally sing the song twice every time I wash my hands!!!
Your mom probably got this 'knowledge' ;-) (whether directly or indirectly) from a Woody Allen movie (see here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e954Vvnp2hQ). I only learnt this recently from a friend so it's quite funny that you mention it as well. Since then, I also have to be careful that singing happy birthday twice while washing hands doesn't become compulsive... At least I don't sing it aloud as in the movie. By the way: I really enjoy your comics. Keep it up! :-) F.
mine will jus tell me that during their army days.. they don't waste their hand as there is no toilet in the jungle. classy....
HAHA! Well I guess if he was in the jungle...he probably had other things to worry about? :P
I am never going to forget that last fact about the birthday song again. Ever. Because the mind selects only the most silly/useless things to remember... =_=
