I have a toothbrush that plays "We Will Rock You." Good choice. That song clocks in at exactly two minutes, which is the minimum time the ADA recommends you brush for.

I brush for 15 seconds.
One second for each tooth.

Good hand washing habits can prevent the spread of germs which is especially helpful for those people who are immunocompromised. I can't decide if using one of Freddie Mercury's songs to encourage this is in good taste or bad.

As for Freddie Mercury, would he have been saved if he washed his hands, his anus, and gargled with Listerine after encounters?

Once he found out he had AIDS, couldn't he have just gone "bubble boy" and lived in a germ free environment to extend his life? AIDS didn't kill him, pneumonia did. No germs, no bacteria, no death from AIDS, right?

He had the money. Why not live in a bubble?

I wonder what songs he would have written about it.

My automatic just pauses momentarily at 2 min. Playing a song would probably piss me off.

It's kind of cool, actually. You can't really hear it from the outside, but while you're brushing your teeth, it uses your skull as a natural amplifier.

/buddy, you're a boy make a big noise

I dunno... Rapper's Delight would be pretty awesome to get caught singing in the office bathroom.

Don't stop me now (Yes I'm having a good time)
I don't want to stop at all

I'm a rocket ship on my way to Mars
On a collision course
I am a satellite I'm out of control
I am a sex machine ready to reload
Like an atom bomb about to
Oh oh oh oh oh explode

I'm burning through the skies Yeah!
Two hundred degrees
That's why they call me Mister Fahrenheit
I'm trav'ling at the speed of light
I wanna make a supersonic woman out of you

Don't stop me don't stop me don't stop me
Hey hey hey!
Don't stop me don't stop me

Two hundred degrees
That's why they call me Mister Fahrenheit
I'm trav'ling at the speed of light
I wanna make a supersonic woman of you

Don't stop me now I'm having such a good time
I'm having a ball don't stop me now
If you wanna have a good time
Just give me a call
Don't stop me now ('Cause I'm having a good time)
Don't stop me now (Yes I'm having a good time)

"Keep Yourself Alive"?
 
2009-04-29 04:20:50 PM  
The theme from "Final Jeopardy." 30 seconds.
 
2009-04-29 04:21:23 PM  
Personally I'd prefer the Queen's Highlander themesong.



"HEEERE we are! Born to be kings. We are the Princes of the Universe..."
 
2009-04-29 04:21:43 PM  
Meh. This (pops) is what I sing while washing my hands.
 
2009-04-29 04:29:32 PM  
...and I want it NOW
 
2009-04-29 04:31:09 PM  
"We will, we will wash you!"
 
2009-04-29 04:33:33 PM  
Echoes.
 
2009-04-29 04:34:19 PM  
Radio Gargle.

Clean, Handed Girls.

Or

The Seven Suds of Rhye.

I'm terrible at remembering lyrics, so I just count to 20.
 
2009-04-29 04:55:09 PM  
And you listen to Queen's "Flick of the Wrist" when you're done washing your hands.
 
2009-04-29 04:58:56 PM  
And while we're at it, we could use Queen's "Misfire" for toilet training.
 
2009-04-29 04:59:35 PM  
They also say that "Another One Bites the Dust" is the perfect tempo for CPR

/What can't queen do?

Vontap ist ahiln avil ahiln adhim Mustapha,
Aleikum Salaam hey!

Rinse.
 
2009-04-29 05:29:26 PM  
Whatever option you choose, make sure it lasts 20 seconds and invest in a nail brush

Oh great advice! I didn't catch the swine flu but now I've caught teh ghey which is much harder to cure.

When I worked at McDonald's they told us to sing two rounds of Happy Birthday, which purportedly added up to twenty seconds.

Freddie Mercury brushed his teeth once. It took eight hours.

I should check how long it takes, but for some reason I find "Take me out to the ball game" to be a pretty good tune for brushing my teeth and washing hands. You can drag it out, too, by going through the it r e a l s l o w l y.

WASH! Ah-AHHHHH! Saves you from the germiverse!

\Wash, I love you, but we only have 20 seconds to save the Earth!

It's the terror of knowing
What this world is about
Watching some good friends
Screaming 'Let me out'
Pray tomorrow - gets me higher high high
Pressure on people - people on streets
Turned away from it all like a blind man
Sat on a fence but it don't work
Keep coming up with love
but it's so slashed and torn
Why - why - why ?
Love love love love love
Insanity laughs under pressure we're cracking
Can't we give ourselves one more chance
Why can't we give love that one more chance
Why can't we give love give love give love give love
give love give love give love give love give love
'Cause love's such an old fashioned word
And love dares you to wash your farking hands
The people on the edge of the night
And love dares you to change our way of
Caring about ourselves
This is our last
Wash your farking hands
Under pressure
Under pressure
Pressure

When you have end stage AIDS, the normal bacteria on your skin, in your lungs, and intestines can become harmful and cause trouble. Living in a bubble wouldn't get rid of those.

Instead of singing the alphabet song, can I sing Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star?

/Think about it... :)
 
2009-05-01 07:12:58 AM  
I used to wash my hands to all of those songs! Well, combine the lengths... maybe not the same tunes.

/OCD
//Stayed at a residential OCD hospital for 2 months
///Bathe in my own feces now
////What?
