Food Service Employees Must Wash

Almost goes without saying, right?

Wrong.

Don’t Let This Happen to YOU!Businesses beware of how you treat stink, stinkers

Beth Stephenson
The Edmond Sun

EDMOND, OKLAHOMA— We love our pretty town and cheer for local businesses to do well, but lately, I’ve had my loyalty a little bruised. It’s one issue if the product or service is not to my taste, but often the issue is customer service or something more subtle that can and ought to be corrected. Edmond businesses reflect on our whole city, so let’s shape up some of these little problems.

Your employees must wash. Not only their bodies and hair, but also their clothing. It’s one thing for a laborer to get a little ripe, but if that happens, they need to stay in the open air. It’s horrid if that stinker is handling your food….

“Noni,” the “Vomit Fruit”

Noni, the Vomit Fruit“Health! The key to the sucker’s purse!” – Goodlow Bender in The Road To Wellville

Wikipedia describes “Noni”–

“Noni grows in shady forests as well as on open rocky or sandy shores….The plant flowers and fruits all year round and produces a small white flower. The fruit is a multiple fruit that has a pungent odor when ripening, and is hence also known as cheese fruit or even vomit fruit. It is oval and reaches 4-7 cm in size. At first green, the fruit turns yellow then almost white as it ripens. It contains many seeds. It is sometimes called starvation fruit. Despite its strong smell and bitter taste, the fruit is nevertheless eaten as a famine food and, in some Pacific islands, even a staple food, either raw or cooked. Southeast Asians and Australian Aborigines consume the fruit raw with salt or cook it with curry. The seeds are edible when roasted….” (source)

Hires RootbeerDoesn’t sound very appetizing, does it? No matter, for the enterprising individual. Package something attractively, and make a host of vauge, inflated claims incorporating buzzwords like “health,” or “natural” or “environment,” and you can sell damned near anything. Particularly in America.*

Which is exactly what the Noni-fruit millionaires did, creating a stench above and beyond the smell of the Noni fruit itself. The stench of “snake-oil cures” and those who promote them for vulgar profit.

The same exaggerated health claims which made the Noni millionaires were made about sarsaparilla in the late 19th century, but sarsparilla’s chief application at present is as the flavoring agent for sarsaparilla soda and, of course, root beer, which is made (the real stuff) from the roots of the sarsaparilla plant.

Panacea turned pop. That’s funny.

“Geek Stink Breath”

Quickcare.org describes how methamphetamine causes halitosis–

How does methamphetamine cause bad breath?

Methamphetamines increase the acid content of stomach fluids and saliva. The acid damages the teeth, which can lead to bad breath. It also decreases the amount of saliva in the mouth. Dry mouth can cause bad breath.

How else can methamphetamine cause bad breath? Meth users tend to grind their teeth and they also crave sugar. Grinding the teeth and eating excessive sweets leads to very poor condition of the teeth. Bad teeth tend to equal bad breath.

Can methamphetamine cause bad breath in other ways? It mainly causes bad breath by damaging the teeth. However, it is harmful to the whole body, and as it affects the internal organs, it can cause bad breath due to problems in the digestive tract as well.

Which leads us to the Green Day tune, “Geek Stink Breath”–

GEEK STINK BREATH

I’m on a mission
I made my decision
To lead a path of self destruction
A slow progression
Killing my complexion
And it’s rotting out my teeth

I’m on a roll
No self control
I’m blowing off steam with methamphetamine
Don’t know what I want
That’s all that I’ve got
And I’m picking scabs off my face
