The shame of ShamWow

Not all that long ago, a Tribune columnist (a man) extolled the so-called virtue of ShamWow towels as a diaper. Had he advocated child abuse I could not have been more horrified.

Baby pee is not “biohazardous” stuff, as he blithely put it, though the ShamWow — still for sale through direct mail — could very well be.  Nothing could be stupider that to put unknown chemicals next to a baby’s tender skin!

Don’t be like that guy, who either hasn’t heard of the link between various man-made substances (e.g. synthetic estrogen) and the decrease in average size in boys’ genitals –or a lazy moron who doesn’t care if there is, so long as he gets his 15 minutes of fame.

ShamWow Guy’s wife divorced him in 2018. Was it related to his having punched out a prostitute for allegedly biting his tongue during a drinking binge? Hard to say. But by then he and the ShamWow had fallen off the map. Good.
