This morning I restocked the cotton swabs in our bathroom supply cabinet; and as I was moving the empty container to the trash, I saw the pictorial representation depicting the multiple applications of these clearly underrated cotton-and-stick creations:
As I reviewed the pictograms, I smiled.
Here are some thoughts that flitted through my brain:
- Marketing cotton swabs as a sink cleaning tool is like marketing toothbrushes as a toilet scrubber.
- Which I guess makes sense, seeing as how the cotton swabs should be used as your toothbrush (per the middle image on the bottom row). You wouldn’t want to brush your teeth with a yucky toilet scrubber.
- What I didn’t realize was that cotton swabs also serve as a baby comb.
- But then what are baby combs used for?
Images like these just crack me up. Yes, I know the true intent of these basic linear drawings – but so often they are just so simplistic that they are quite ambiguous; and therefore they are open to some interesting interpretations; which commonly leads to smiles. So yay! Go cotton swabs. And go smiles. 🙂
