Good Hygiene Is Universal

I saw this in a men's restroom. I don't think the establishment put it there. They're a pretty tolerant bunch.

No, some one else put it there. And, more important than who they are, is: what are they trying to say?

Extraterrestrials shouldn't wash their hands after using the restroom? I'm not sure that's a good idea.

I mean- putting aside the fact it's unsanitary- it sends the wrong message to the rest of the galaxy.

Of course, it could be a warning to aliens not to use the soap because it's dangerous to their skin. Or something. Like that movie with Mandy Patinkin they made into a TV show. I know, I know- that was salt water. But, same theory.

Or maybe I'm missing the point.

I'd like to say, that we here at Beej Weir's Blog are pro-EVERYONE-washing-their-hands-after-using-the-restroom. Or after probing something, as the case may be.
Unless it dissolves their skin. In which case? I don't know what to do.

Hopefully, the extraterrestrials have a way of handling this. They built spaceships to get here, right? You'd think they'd have a way to safely wash their hands.

BUT- I bet they only use it when somebody's in the restroom watching them.

You know what I mean.
