1. Twelve Germ-Free Inches!

    I needed a new ruler and there I was at, yes, the 99¢ Only store yet again.

    And this thing is staring me in the face:

    Hey for 99¢ only, the price was right! So I bought it.
    I have placed a Toolie Bird by it for scale.

    Now can we get a closeup of the label?

    Aside from what you’re thinking – which is that Westcott sounds like the name of a chain of expensive hotels rather than a purveyor of fine measuring devices (Don’t worry, I thought the same thing.) – aside from that, what you’ve noticed is that they’ve manufactured a ruler protected with something called “Microban” which it seems “fights stain and odor causing bacteria.”

    Hm.

    Now, has this been an issue among those who use rulers perhaps more frequently than I do? Is this something that I just hadn’t heard about or experienced? Because I’ll be honest with you, I haven’t had this problem.

     

     

    …What the hell are you people measuring?
