I’m always a little bemused by those who make bold comparative statements without specifying to what they’re comparing something.
Here’s an example. I find myself tonight in a Bed & Breakfast near Gatwick airport. The little sachet of shampoo in the bathroom says:
Well, that’s good. Mmmm… Wait a sec….less harmful than what? Than the animals, presumably?
I’ve sometimes wondered if I should start selling lead-free butter.
