Lather. Rinse. Repeat.

Happy Global Handwashing Day! At first it seemed strange to me that there is a day to promote handwashing that is supported by the UN, the US government, and the World Bank. What's next, Wear a Coat When it is Cold Day? How about International Don't Play in Traffic Day?

Then I looked around and realized that there are a lot of people who never got message. In the developing world folks are dealing with grinding poverty and a host of other problems, so they may have missed this particular lesson. Here in the west I see people in rest rooms who don't bother with the sink. I'm not sure that they have any excuse, but that doesn't mean that they're irredeemable. Here at Maniacal Hooting we like to do our part to make the world a better place, so I now present the following public service message on the occasion of Global Handwashing Day.

Wash your hands.

Thank you. That is all.
