I dropped my wide-tooth pick in the toilet the other day, made a face, and then soaked it in a little bit of bleach mixture and then washed it well and continued to use it. But that thing is just plastic, plus it apparently has special Curl Enabling Powers without which my hair would be a large aureole of frizz around my head. My answer regarding a brush would depend on what the bristles were made of and how widely they were set. If they were thick-set bendy bristles I would throw the brush out. This is more detail than you needed.

Also, my jokes are unfunny enough before I have to start editing them to fit in 255 characters. I should learn a lesson eventually and just skip that poll question.

See, the problem is, I have really thick, wavy/curly Arab hair. And the only thing that will make it behave is this one brush, and I have never found a brush that works as well. So it was either rescue it from the toilet or be completely without hair-care options.

This makes sense to me, and I support your decision.

You left out "I don't have any hair on my head." I'd have chosen that one.

Missing poll option for question #2: I do not have hair. (Or a means for expelling waste from my body.)

My whole life has been straight edge, not that I label it in that way.

Man, Chemical! Does that mean you've never had a drink or drugs, ever? Because that makes me want to cry.

I've had a drink, but never to the point of drunkenness. I've never tried any drugs, unless you count Excedrin. More than "straight edge," I'd probably just label myself a dork.

"TACO ROBINSON" is not one of ZMF's wittier jokes; it certainly isn't up there with "NOEL BITCHASS MURPHY." Then again, it isn't as wince-inducing either, so I'm just going to call it a wash.

And yeah, I'd probably still use a brush I dropped into a clean toilet, but I'd bleach and wash said brush first, which your poll doesn't take into account; it sounds more like that option is "half-heartedly shake off some of the urine and then jam it back into my hair."

A toothbrush that falls into the toilet, on the other hand, is off-limits forever.

It may not be one of his best, but it makes me think of tacos, and I like tacos.

I could detail the steps I took after my hairbrush fell in the toilet, but I feel like my readership already holds me in the lowest possible esteem that they can without trying to have me committed, so maybe I shouldn’t.

And hey, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

The Fudgeknuckles are Sen. Joseph Biden's favorite band. The Fudgeknuckles have survived seven terrorist attacks. The Fudgeknuckles have made two of the Three Tenors weep with their musical majesty. The third Fudgeknuckles album can double as a perpetual motion device. When the Beatles sang "all you need is love", it was only because they hadn't heard the Fudgeknuckles yet. Everybody loves the Fudgeknuckles, even if they don't know it. And Pitchfork gave the Fudgeknuckles a 7.2, which really isn't bad.

Wow, some of yr friends are wussies about toilets and hair brushes. My brush cost like $30 or something ridiculous, so you can bet I'd be fishing it out of the toilet. But even if my 99cent comb fell in, I'd still get it out and use it. Yeah, I'd rinse it off first, and maybe even use soap, but bleach? To me that seems worse than toilet water. Toilet water's clean, anyway.

Of course, it's also entirely possible that I'm just gross.

Yeah, being a shaveyhead since like 1982 (with a brief exception in '87 when I grew one of those horrific ponytails just to piss off all the hepsters, except once I realised I was never going to get laid again it was disappeared & I was back to my clippers) a comb or brush hasn't been in my hands for decades. Well, except a cat brush. But if that fell in the (clean) toilet, sure I'd rinse it & reuse it.

And I didn't read well enough, & failed to check tax avoider. None of the things I checked lasted more than a week or two anyway, as I have no discipline and, in the case of "vegetarian", was unable to avoid steaky temptation. I could be a veggie if it wasn't for steak. As a Scottish acquaintance says, "Vegetables? Those are what food eats, aren't they?"

Hey, going by yr icon, are you another one-a them shaved-head+beardo types? We should start a club. ("The Sons of Shel Silverstein", maybe.)

The beard comes and goes, depending on orders from the husband to shave it off. My membership would have to be conditional (seasonal?).
