Hey, No One Told Me

No one told me Q-tips aren't for your ears any longer. Have you noticed the packaging recently? Nothing about ears.

They talk about removing make-up, cleaning computer keyboards, swabs for cuts and bruises, and even arts & crafts, but nothing about ears.

Didn't we all grow up sticking those things down our ear to scoop out yellowish brown ear wax?

Now what? Do we stop clawing for the canal candy? Is even this bad for us now?

Maybe they had too many law suits from idiots like this:


  1. Clean your ears at your own risk!

    There is no drought of stupidity out there. The Q-tip people need to protect themselves.


  2. I once had a doctor tell me that you should never put anything smaller than your elbow in your ear.

  3. Ears are supposed to be cleaned with pen caps, not q-tips! How can you scratch your ear with a cotton swab? That is just silly....
