Greatest. Invention. Ever.


Supposedly, when Louis Armstrong was asked "What is jazz?" he replied, "Man, if you gotta ask, you'll never know."

And if you "gotta" ask why I think this is the greatest invention ever, you'll never understand the answer.


I suppose a lot of you were already aware of it, but I wasn't. So there.

(UPDATE, since I seem to have confused some of you! It's a sponge for cleaning drinking glasses, with a "scrubby thing" on the tip. It gets the very bottom of the glass clean, which is hard to do!)

And okay, I'll admit that it isn't really "the greatest invention ever," but at least my title got your attention, dinnit?

Thanks for your time.

  2. It must be the microphone you use when you sing those love songs to Betsy.

  3. Hm. I assumed that anyone, female or male, who either does-- or helps with -- the housecleaning would know what it was... and why it's such a cool item. As "Sharp-Eyed Reader" so often says, "So sad."

  7. I'm getting one. I'll let you know if it beats out the Swiffer. Swiffer is still on top and has yet to be toppled, in this household...

  8. I'm not trying to turn my Foxyblog into "Hints from Heloise," but a bachelor like myself really appreciates thnigs like this! I drink my coffee from 12-ounce plastic beer mugs, and they're a pain to clean thoroughly with ordinary dishwashing pads and/or brushes.The photo I found on the 'net is for a big-name brand, and it costs around $4-5. The one I just bought is a knockoff brand that sells for less than $2.

  11. @California Girl: Having seen many women without their make-up first thing in the morning, you have a point... (Not trying to imply that I'm so wonderful first thing in the morning or later in the day, for that matter, btw.)

    @AngelMay: I didn't really think you thought it was the world's biggest Q-Tip! But Brian seemed mystified, and Willow's comment was... interesting. ;-) I also got a couple of private emails asking "WTF was that?"
