i heart moothwash
Nov 30, 2008 at 8:48 pm rating: 13
It’s perfect for those times my meeth get that not-so-fresh feeling.
Nov 30, 2008 at 9:08 pm rating: 30
Maybe she’s Canadian. After she has been oot and aboot drinking, she uses the moothwash. That could be the case, but I doot it.
Dec 1, 2008 at 12:59 am rating: 29
get hosed, eh!

Mouthwash is a long way to go to avoid liquor taxes, but at least no one can call him a smelly drunk.
Nov 30, 2008 at 8:55 pm rating: 5
For some reason your comment reminds me of the alcoholic woman on an episode of Intervention who drank bottles of Costco size mouthwash. *shudders*

Our writer is a recycler. Why, even his/her mouthwash is Green!

Well, at least we know the answer to the eternal question with Dianne.

She doesn’t swallow?
Dec 1, 2008 at 12:15 am rating: 1
she doesn’t swallow when she’s drunk, at the very least
Dec 1, 2008 at 12:40 am rating: 2
but, does she spit the spunk back in the punk?
yep, whole new question.

If that’s the mouthwash bottle in front of the note, I have a feeling that saliva will have little effect on it, since it looks like it will expire in the year 290,511.
Nov 30, 2008 at 9:09 pm rating: 9
If that’s the mouthwash, we’re talking about some wicked halitosis!
Nov 30, 2008 at 9:21 pm rating: 2
I’m not sure I agree with you a hundred percent on your police work there Wade. The bottle clearly expires in the year 278A.
Nov 30, 2008 at 9:30 pm rating: 14
Maybe, nasoccermom. But I think that is the lot number.
It could be that it expires on the 29th of May, 2011, but that seems precise to the point of anal retentive.
Then again, the English are nothing if not precise.
Nov 30, 2008 at 9:35 pm rating: 3
I’m pretty sure that’s a bottle of Robitussin. Mouthwash is behind the note… looks to be blue Listerine.
Dec 1, 2008 at 12:42 am rating: 3
It is Robitussin, and lot number is above expiration date on their labels.
Not that I’m AR, I just happen to have a bottle on my night stand.
Not an exact match, mind you, but close enough. to match the “EXP” marking to the photo.
Dec 1, 2008 at 1:29 am rating: 1
Oh, CB, if you’re that desperate, I’ll send you a case of Ripple or something. Please, please, don’t drink yourself to sleep with Robitussin.

I really miss the old Vicks Formula 44 w/codeine.
It made you dream in Technicolor.
Dec 1, 2008 at 1:17 pm rating: 4
No, dear. It was always YOU that makes us dream in technicolor.
The Vicks +codeine just makes it difficult to remember….

Maybe the person whom uses the mouthwash spits in it, too.
Nov 30, 2008 at 9:50 pm rating: 24
Ewww, that’s not even really mouthwash, either. That looks like this nasty prescription shit that my husband got from the dentist after a root canal.
Who would use that willingly???
Nov 30, 2008 at 10:05 pm rating: 1
Judging by the look of what’s in the bottle, it looks more like a blood sample to me. This clearly shows the PAN leaver’s bloody backwash and betrays their vampirish tendencies. I’m on team: drive-a-stake-through-their-heart to stop these nightly vampire binges
Nov 30, 2008 at 11:18 pm rating: 0
Are you kidding, Mishee? Root canal prescription shit is good. Of course, it may be nothing to you spoiled Californians, with your legal pot, but the rest of us have to survive on happy pills.
Dec 1, 2008 at 3:49 am rating: 2
P.S. That is, I used to spit in it when I got drunk, but seeing as how somebody else has been drinking it, there’s not enough mouthwash left for me to even get tipsy.
Nov 30, 2008 at 10:21 pm rating: 3
I say if someone is at my house and needs mouthwash, be my guest. Really it is not that expensive and it is always nice, no great, to be fresh.
Nov 30, 2008 at 11:30 pm rating: 0
Wouldn’t the antiseptic effects of the mouthwash’s high alcohol content destroy any of the nasty shit that’d be floating around in Dianne’s saliva? So really, the mouthwash wouldn’t really be nasty since any of the spit in there would already be sterile.
Dec 1, 2008 at 12:10 am rating: 0
Dianne apparently doesn’t really understand the concept of mouthwash sterilizing all the nasty shit that i in saliva to make her mouth so fresh and so clean clean.
Dec 1, 2008 at 1:32 am rating: 1
It’s good enough for Dianne, apparently, so why wouldn’t it good enough for her roommates?

Dec 1, 2008 at 1:15 am rating: 14
no. NO. NOOOOO! IT WASN’T FUCKING DELICIOUS AT ALL! SHE HAS BEEN SPITTING BACK INTO THE BOTTLE WHEN SHE’S DRUNK! IT’S A MIX OF LISTERINE AND MARGARITA MADNESS BACKWASH! IT’S NOT FUCKING DELICIOUS! IT’S JUST NOT!
Dec 1, 2008 at 3:12 am rating: 8

Just mouthwash? I think he might need some Robitussin, too.

“Whomever” has been teaching you the difference between subjects and objects has failed you.
Dec 1, 2008 at 12:56 am rating: 13
A quick and easy way to tell the difference is to try “me” and “I” in place of the “whom” and “who” you’re debating. If “me” works better, use “whom” (to remember this, note that both words have an “m” in them). Likewise, “I” maps to “who” (note the lack of “m” in both words). In this case, “I have been using…” works best.

I’m going to guess she didn’t do very wall.
(That ‘a’ was out of a job since the ‘e’ is up there.)
Dec 2, 2008 at 2:28 pm rating: 1
So I’m guessing I shouldn’t kiss Dianne, given that she gargles her own spit.
Dec 1, 2008 at 12:58 am rating: 8
why does she spit into her own moothwash? drunk must equal stupid and gross in dianne’s little corner of london. for the love of all that’s minty fresh, SPIT IT OUT!
Dec 1, 2008 at 2:55 am rating: 1
She spits back into the moothwash so she can re-use it. A bottle lasts much longer if you do this.
Dec 3, 2008 at 10:33 am rating: 0
Meh, it’s all the same spit, right? Except now it’s got a hint of minty freshness!
Dec 1, 2008 at 2:11 am rating: 0
that little polka dotted cup is making me dizzy. i may have to spit up–QUICK! GET ME THE MOOTHWASH BOTTLE!

My old roommate used to always say “him and I” and “her and I”. Sounds pretty retarded to my ears naturally, but falls under the same category of “totally inappropriate use of pronouns to sound proper”… and stupid.
But whom am I to judge?

Whomever has been using my touthbrush should know that when i’m drunk i sometimes pleasure myself with the bristly goodness.
Yes, anally too.

You should consider keeping a separate toothbrush for that, Goldie.
Because, you know, the firm ones aren’t so good for your teeth.
Dec 1, 2008 at 6:15 am rating: 5
Applying the toothbrush directly to your butthole – nice! Way to cut out the middle man (toilet) and the magic of airborne feces.
That’s right, magic. Poop flying has to be considered a form of sorcery conjured up by the porcelain god.
Dec 1, 2008 at 11:13 am rating: 3
Sometimes when I’m drunk, I pray to the porcelain god to send me a softer toothbrush.

I love that she went to the trouble of using those blendy-pens to write the note. Pretty!
Dec 1, 2008 at 7:52 am rating: 0
I’m sad that she’s so drunk that she gargles with Robitussin.
Get help, girl.

Sometimes when I am really drunk I leave PAN notes for my roomies with random capitals and lisping stories of Mooths and Squirrels.

You Suck at Craigslist
You know you’re desperate if you’re drinking mouthwash and Robitussin to get drunk. The next step is drinking the cooking wine despite the salt content. After that, it’s just a short hop to the antifreeze.
Dec 1, 2008 at 10:32 am rating: 3
Only the best wines from the French countryside employ the use of anti-freeze to make their wine.
Just hope they don’t put in too much, because you could go blind!

That is amazing devotion to oral hygiene. When I am drunk I think I am doing well to put my PJs on rather than just sleeping in my undies. I can’t imagine remembering to rinse with mouthwash.
Unless she only uses mouthwash when drunk … which begs the question; does she floss stoned?
Dec 1, 2008 at 10:45 am rating: 17
She spits? Sounds like she’d make for a lousy girlfriend…
Dec 1, 2008 at 12:28 pm rating: 1
If I saw taht I’d be so tempted to leave a note saying
“Really? Me too!”
Dec 1, 2008 at 3:58 pm rating: 1
It could be worse for her roomate. She could be using the mouthwash as a douche, and then puts it back in the bottle.
Dec 1, 2008 at 4:03 pm rating: 0
I think it’s an empty warning; she’s just saying that to stop people from using it.
Good job on the Kate Nash reference!
Dec 1, 2008 at 5:53 pm rating: 3
I was wondering if anyone else would pick up on the awesome Kate Nash-ness!
Dec 5, 2008 at 3:12 am rating: 1
No hairs in the combs, no pink crust around the cap of the Robitussin. This looks very clean for a London bathroom. The strangely 70s colour scheme makes me wonder if it has one of those shag pile toilet seat covers so popular in those days.
Dec 1, 2008 at 9:48 pm rating: 0
I’m with Dianne. Corsodyl is expensive mouthwash (around £4 a bottle) and it drove me crazy when my housemates used mine. It also drives me nuts that they use my toothpaste when I bought them their own as an apology for borrowing theirs a couple of times. *cry*
Dec 4, 2008 at 5:50 am rating: 0
i think i WOULD consider the roommate offer, because a) england is way cooler than germany b) she has good taste, i checked out her photoalbum c) her best friend looks a lot like me and seems really nice too

I admit I haven’t read ALL the comments because there are quite a few, but can I point out the misused accusative in the note?
Should be “whoever”, surely.

Wow. A “passive- aggressive note” that is ACTUALLY passive-aggressive.
I can’t believe it. I think that for a moment the writers of this blog must have lost their focus, which was to never post a genuinely passive-aggressive note ever.
