Good. Now, they won't be able to catch the gay either.

/it's soccer, after all

Oh for fark's sake, shaking hands won't kill you. Humanity has lasted this long hasn't it?

On a similar topic, I still see tards leaving public restrooms without washing their hands. Makes me want to go all stabby.

How did this make it to the music section??

I can't believe that it took four comments before someone asked this.

Apparently it's music.

A lot of singing goes on in the showers after a game, mostly showtunes.

Just got back from my sons baseball game. Coach ran down the middle of the handshake line to prevent the kids from touching.
Sort of pointless when you figure they are all touching the same ball and bats.

Wasn't this an episode of Jeremiah?

That's what I said in the previous "Don't shake hands" thread. And I still can't believe a flight was diverted from D.C. to Boston yesterday because one person on the plane had flu like symptoms (and I guess the Nation has had enough of Boston and wants to take us out with the flu). This whole thing is getting rediculous. I'm going to go eat some bacon and salmonella-free peanut butter.

So we've come to a point where it's dangerous to touch someone's hand for fear that it might be infested with a filthy killer virus. Great.

There is a group of people who refuse to put TP in the toilet instead they throw it on the floor or the damn garbage bin.

Instead of shaking hands, just snort like a pig.

I prefer the fist bump, personally. But I don't like to be touched by people I don't know.

So they play a whole soccer game, bumping into and touching each other and then they are afraid to shake hands after the game.

Seems to me that if they are that concerned, they shouldn't have played the damn game in the first place.

They're playing the Brazilian samba style?

Wow, I was in the middle of posting the same thing and accidently canceled the post. Good thing you have it covered.

Wow, that coach sounds like a real douchenozzle.

Good, it stops that kid who spits on his hand and sez "bad game" to everyone.

Somebody needs to post a link to that SNL routine "Fecal Matters."

Barack and Michelle Obama had the right idea, after all, with their "terrorist fist jab." Much less likely to transmit teh H1N1.
 
2009-05-02 12:25:18 PM
It would be extremely dangerous to touch the ball with your foot during the game, too. It could be contaminated with bacon lung.

Good thing there is no interpersonal contact in football, basketball, soccer, or baseball. Otherwise we'd have to ban those sports.

I'm a health inspector who also works part time a Wal-mart so my wife can stay home with our daughter. I see employees in all departments (including the ones who prepare food to eat and stock groceries and produce as well as management) leave the restroom without washing their hands. I've mentioned this to management and how much it concerns me, but no steps have been taken to rectify the situation.

People, handwashing isn't that difficult or time consuming and might save you or some stranger from getting sick. Yes, we have survived as a species for 5,000 years *snark* but maybe you've noticed how life expectancies have increased signifigantly along the way? Do you suppose some of that increase might be due to better hygiene?

oh man, I used to spit on my hand whenever the coaches forced us to shake hands with every member of the opposing team after the game in peewee baseball. I guess I can see where the paranoid people are coming from.

/still can't believe I was such a scumbag back then
//not a scumbag now. believe me!

What an asshole little punk you were.

You know..because when you play soccer, it's a non-contact sport.
Wait a second...couldn't you pass the flu playing soccer if...hmmm

"Oh for fark's sake, shaking hands won't kill you. Humanity has lasted this long hasn't it?"

Piss on them shiat on them sneeze in them when sick and walk around touching everyone is how we all got immune.

Else why would you put the pharmacy in the grocery store so everyones whos sick will mix with everyone whos not.

Because the grocery store can charge more for the same medicine (over the counter), as compared to a stand-alone pharmacy, as a convenience fee, which increases their overall profit margin while letting them cut their prices on their core products (milk, bread, eggs, etc) making them look more competitive?
Nah. Can't be it.
