Shampoo Warning Part II

Still intrigued by yesterday's observation, I took another look at my shampoo bottle again this morning. It's worse than I thought. It's not lawyers behind the warning...It's the government! That's my current position. This morning as I took another look at the backside of the bottle I noticed the heading of all the information was labeled "Drug Facts". Whoa! My dandruff shampoo is a drug? I really haven't meant to be doing "drugs" in the shower a couple of times a week. Do I need to go to re-hab? Nah. I'm not hooked. I can give it up anytime I want as long as I don't start using it "internally".

Shampoo Warning

Not long ago I purchased some shampoo. I was feeling in the mood for a little pampering, so I purchased two types of shampoo. Both were the same brand designed for men and one was a dandruff shampoo with conditioner. Well, this morning while showering, I noticed the warning on the dandruff shampoo. "Warning: For external use only" I'm thinking to myself that is strange. Who would use shampoo internally? I then wondered if both shampoos had the warning so I checked the other bottle. Nope, just the dandruff shampoo. Who would think of using a dandruff shampoo internally? Are there internal areas that struggle with dandruff? Did someone actually do this and therefore the need for the warning?

One thing is fairly certain. There are one or more lawyers that are responsible for this, but why?

I Can See Clearly Now

I can see clearly now, Comcast is gone.
There are no obstacles in my way.
Gone is the bad reception that drove me mad.
It's gonna be a bright, bright TV watchin day.
It's gonna be a bright, bright TV watchin day.

Since having the Dish installed two days ago, my reception of TV5 has been outstanding. Not only that, but I have DVR (Digital Video Recorder) as part of my receiver. I can pause and playback live TV. I can record to DVR and then transfer to DVD (DVD recorder not included.) if I decided I like the program and want to keep it. I guess it's one of those things that once you're made the change, you don't want to go back.
