"You know that some restaurant workers don't bother to wash their hands after using the bathroom. Some don't wash their hands after they pick their nose.

He might have picked the pepperoni off the floor. You are eating all those germs. Don't you care?" He said, "Of course I care. But sometimes I don't when it smells so good!" 2.0
