This is hilarious- thanks to Facebook any idea you have can be publicized throughout the land of bored souls and people who have nothing better to do with their lives. Like the club for people who turn their pillows over so they can sleep on the cold side, a couple hundred thousand people are in that one. Or the national clean your washing cup day.
In quotes are my answers or ideas about the language featured in the clubs or events mission statement:
NO, THIS IS NOT A JOKE!
It is one of the great mysteries of life: why are there so many dirty wash cups?
“Have you ever noticed that washing cups and soap don’t mix? – its a scary thing but the frummer you get the longer the washing stations are and the more cups on chains there are- but seldom is there soap. Which means that not only are the cups dirty from being thrown around and used constantly by hands that never see soap – but they are probably filthier then a dirty toilet.”
The only thing that should go into it is water unless your are cleaning it.
“Or those brown paper towels that somehow wind up inside of them”
You should turn it upside down to drain to dry. Letting it sit we will cause build up due to hard water, and tap water additives. YUCK!
“Have you ever been to New Square? – it would mean taking off time from whatever it is they do over there.”
Plastic and sealed wood, well there is just no excuse. So easy to clean. Wood, just rinse with distilled water now and again, wipe witha soft cloth and dry. Plastic, use soap and a scubber if you have to. If it’s that dirty, throw it away! It costs at the most $3 or (Insert amount and currency here). They are so cheap!
Ceramic, just wash like a mug (make sure it is sealed inside!)
Stainless steel, silver and copper can be cleaned and polished with your special cleaner.
– Your children should not use them as toys and make them all cruddy.
“Don’t worry most people chain them to the sink – similar to the way Filenes Basement cables the Gucci underwear.”
– There should never be a film, or crusted (eww) on layer of who knows what inside or outside your cup. (ESPECIALLY INSIDE!)
“What you never used your washing cup as a cholent scoop?”
If yours is even getting close to cruddy, run it through the dishwasher, or put it in the hot soapy water to soak with the dishes. It’s sooo easy to keep clean.
“What and make the cup fleishig?”
GO NOW TO YOUR SINK (KITCHEN/BATHROOM), AND LOOK…. IS IT DIRTY? WASH IT!
If you know someone who has a really cruddy cup, and they don’t have facebook, do a mitzva, and buy them one. Send it anonymously if you have to, or the next time you go to them for a Shabbat/Holiday meal, bring a cup as a host/hostess gift instead of wine, or put one on the bottom of the wine bottle.
“Never thought of that – bringing a clean washing cup to a meal you know the washing cup reminds you of the bar bathroom after last call.”
It is such a chillul HaShem (Disgrace of God’s name) to see so many many dirty wash cups, over and over, and over again!
Let’s do a misva / mitzva!
WASH YOUR CUP!
PLEASE INVITE ALL YOUR JEWISH FRIENDS!
WHO DOESN’T WANT A CLEAN ??? ????? ?????
