I read about an old block who was getting his ears checked by the doc. doc pulled an old style bus ticket out of his ear. Turns out the guy hadnt been profoundly deaf in that ear all his life he had just shoved a bus ticket in there when he was a boy

I don't mind people using it in threads, it is in the titles I can't stick it

they pop up and down constantly and you can't avoid it or know when to expect it

thanks WW

I noticed someone used the "s" word on here LOL

FrannyandZooey Wed 09-May-07 21:05:03

WW I love you]
there has already been a thread about this with the non-loofah word in the title

LOL - I see you saw this story, doesnt it make you cringe

Sorry GiantSquirrelSpotter - must admit the other 'bomb' does make for a funnier story
I must confess, I thought bathroom loofahs too and shuddered when I read spiders...eek..

also wondering how you could fit 2 huge beige bathroom loofahs in your ear!! scrub your back and then accidently they end up in yer ears?

i now have a zero tolerance attitude towards spiders in the bathroom.

Aloveheart Wed 09-May-07 10:02:34

gonna put cotton wool in my ears tonight!!! ewwwwwwwww.

Quootiepie Wed 09-May-07 10:01:49

GiantSquirrelSpotter Wed 09-May-07 09:56:46

lol at the mother saying she'll bomb the house

Flamesparrow Wed 09-May-07 08:17:33

Sat here for ages (before reading article) trying to work out how the hell anyone could fit a loofah in their ear, let alone two

Trinityrhino Wed 09-May-07 08:05:48

i clicked on this thinking 'how could you get one loofah into your ear, they are huge'

now i'm shaking

From what I recall of living in San Francisco, the Americans are keen on 'insect bombs' which you let off in the house whilst you are out to kill vermin (in our case fleas yuck)

So am sure that is what the mother meant!!

Pmsl at the thought you all assumed she meant a 'proper' bomb. Really???

FiveFingeredFiend Tue 08-May-07 22:13:36

surely it must be an insect bomb rather like a flea bomb.

rather than a nuclear bomb.


madamenoir Tue 08-May-07 22:13:34

apparently you can swallow 13 loofahs a year at night (no idea who counts) if you sleep with your mouth open...they are attracted by the moisture in your mouth...

at least she didn't say "My first reaction was to go and bomb Iraq"

lyrabelacqua Tue 08-May-07 22:05:57

Absolutely pmsl at mother's first reaction!! Why!!!!

GiantSquirrelSpotter Tue 08-May-07 22:02:29

Gdg, that's exactly what I thought.

What a strange woman, wanting to go and bomb the house.

It doesn't exactly address negative American stereotypes, does it?

(Have a problem? Bomb it! )

thedogsbollox Tue 08-May-07 22:02:01



Oh just the thought makes me squirm.

In fact if it happened to me, I think I might just bomb the house

fryalot Tue 08-May-07 22:01:06

LOOFAH!!!! that's the word.


MrsCarrot Tue 08-May-07 22:00:38
