I just read that the maker's of Tide, some time ago, added a bitter tasting ingredient to the coating on its laundry pods to keep infants from eating them.
Let me tell you a story...

When my niece and nephew were about eight years old they came to visit me for the weekend. I was told "no sweets" by their parents, which was was okay with me but I was also a prankster uncle with a pack of pepper-gum who knew what these kids wanted. I pulled it out of the sock-drawer and said "Who wants gum?" and they were like "I DO! I DO!"

So I watched them eat it, tears cascading down their rosy cheeks as they desperately chewed this stuff, knowing it HAD to be sweet and tasty because it was gum. Right?

Tide, dudes, stop making poison look like candy. Yeah, you'll lose a buck or two from idiot buyers who reflexively buy it because it looks like a Gobstopper but you'll still make enough profit to afford the spare yacht. Trust me.

Let's see… Sound and picture off, subtitles set to "truth", and we're all ready to go.
[…the rich are richer, health care is more expensive, Mexico is not going to pay for the wall and, thanks to a Republican Party which also dances to Putin's tune, America is closer to a fascist oligarchy than ever before. God bless all you stupid voters and fuck the United States of America.]
It's the only way to watch the State of the Union.
