Arm and Hammer 3 / Randi 0

I refuse to believe that this packaging was not designed on purpose in a blatant marketing ploy to make me Neosporin my toothbrush in the middle of the night while fumbling through my travel accessories, THUS creating a need for me to use double the toothpaste in a vain attempt to wash out my toothbrush before brushing my teeth.

Oh, that's right. I'm not paranoid, Johnson &Johnson. I'm just onto your little game.


Congratulations. You've won yet another battle. But I will win the war.

... on toothpaste... or whatever.

I haven't done that...yet...but I can name other brands that play games with your head.

I've been lurking for a while, but doing it non-creepily.

So hi

I hope you will come by and see my new project. If you don't want to, delete this comment. I won't be mad.

Oh gosh---I hope you've always noticed what you did BEFORE you neosporined your teeth! Then again--I'm sure neosporin would kill germs too...

Laura said...

I have done that with diaper cream, and realized it only when brushing... yeah, pretty disgusting.

Emmy said...

Oh yuck! Not fun.. and I think you are right, definitely a conspiracy! ;)

Dave said...

Be glad arm and hammer doesn't make preparation h

Hahahahahaaaaaa!!!!!!

The only worse one I heard of was when my little sister at about age 5 brushed her teeth at my grandparents' home with what she thought was pretty pink toothpaste--but what was really denture adhesive.

Melissa said...

BLECH!!! Nasty... maybe you need to get a new toothpaste ;)

Jen said...

LOL!! I had an experience my second year at girls camp. For some reason I put my can of insect repellent in the same ziploc bag as my toothbrush and toothpaste (I blame this on my 13 yr old brain). The repellent leaked and I brushed my teeth with a combination of OFF and Crest. Not good. No amount of rinsing could get that taste off!

Tay said...

Hahaha - Dan you are hilarious! That would be the nastiest thing ever. EVER.

I'm glad you were able to get the neosporin out of your toothbrush. Darn those companies!

goddessdivine said...

So does that mean you've done this three separate times?

JustRandi said...

special memo to goddessdivine-
shut-up, ok?

Celeste said...

Yuck...just hearing this made my teeth feel greasy and feel like I should go brush them. At least it wasn't Preperation-H or something way more gross.

goddessdivine said...

HA, HA, HA, HA, HA

You know I love you! ;-)

Lee said...

I too am hung up on the fact that the score is 3 to zip. 3??? really???

Darn plastic tubes. pitoouie!

Heather of the EO said...

Oh my goodness that's too funny.

YUM, neosporin!

Heather said...

Well, at least your mouth should be pretty germ free.

Rebecca is Thrilled by the Thought said...

Oh....disgusting. I'm so sorry for your experience. Blasted packaging.

Vern said...

I've used mouthwash as a handsoap before, but I think you win brushing your teeth with neosporin. But I bet if you had any infection in your gums before, it's gone now!

My mom once grabbed an aerosol can that she THOUGHT was hairspray.....it was bug spray.

LisAway said...

Oh. my. That's quite yucky. Really, there is no question that they packaged them like that on purpose. Never mind that the neosporin lid is nothing like a toothpaste lid (which you have to touch and can actually feel, even in the dark. . .) Just kidding! They really are very much alike.

Tori :) said...

LOL! Atleast it was Neosporin and not Preparation H...

Jillybean said...

Just be glad you didn't do what my friend's mom did. She mistook the Desitin for toothpaste.
Now that was nasty!
(plus, technically, you're supposed to call poison control if you happen to ingest Desitin. Please don't ask me how I know this)

Yvonne said...

LOL at tori ; )

I'd definitely change toothpaste--would not want to make that mistake.

Loralee and the gang... said...

Ok, so now your teeth are perfectly bacteria free. (But did it make your breath minty fresh. Probably not!)
:~D

Roxie said...

I think I just got a little sick inside. My mouth feels real funny right now.
