It's cleaner for a dog, not for anyone else. Just like Komodo dragons.

Human bites are nasty too.

Anecdotal. Means nothing.

That's bites.

/and clean any cuts with iodine or something.

If you think that's bad, imagine what a human mouth is like.

She was bit by a dog. Her legs were amputated.

Two separate incidences ... correlation does not equal causation.

I thought it was a dog's ass that was so clean...

Not normally, no.

Except FTA that there is proven causation here, determined by the doctors. The bite caused sepsis, which moved into her legs and hand and caused irreversible necrosis via clotting.

Just proves that the whole 'cleaner' bit doesn't mean it's actually clean or antiseptic.

Not "clean", subby, "cleaner"; than yours.

'Both of her legs had turned black below the knees," her mother Carol Wilson told the broadcaster.

'Her body was literally dying, her extremities were dying, it's like a horror movie, I can't put it into words.'


But you just did.

Some people catch weird diseases. Cut yourself in sea water and the natural ocean bacteria can hardly tell the difference between their home and your bloodstream, can be bad news when you die from something that no one ever bothered to name.

I'm guessing you missed the part where the dog bite caused sepsis.

Open wound succumbs to infection, huge scientific breakthrough you got there.

Have a buddy who had his hand chewed up by a mugger a few years back.

The infection landed him in the hospital for an entire month and damn near killed him.

You can't buy iodine anymore cause of hydroiodioc acid being useful for reducing ephedrine

Again, two separate incidences: getting a dog bite and getting sepsis. Just because doctors think there MIGHT be a link doesn't mean one exists.

And if you are the type that believes in these magical, microscopic organisms called "bacteria" that cause illness, well then I have some midichlorians to sell you because, brother, you are so gullible that aww hell I can't do this I am a horrible troll i'm just kidding.

No kidding. They spend half the day eating their own poop and the other half licking their balls. And the third half with their nose in someone's crotch or butt.

You can't expect someone abusing the word "literally" to understand the noises coming out of their own mouth.

Given that dogs clean their asses with their tongues, this is not so unlikely.

Dogs have to use their mouths for hands. How clean would your hands be if you couldn't wash them?

My dog's hobby is eating anything and everything,the worst being when she ate from the litter box. Oh god she threw up cat shiat and a super thick looking brown mess that had to have been cat litter. Yesterday I caught her trying to eat a twist tie and I once caught her trying to eat a nail.
/Silly puppy,those aren't for eating.

i find all the ball licking comments perplexing. dogs dont wear underwear and pants so their balls dont get ripe. shouldnt they really be just as clean as their back or belly or tail?
 
2013-01-20 10:39:58 PM
It's not cheating because it's your dog

I've always thought they don't really taste any dirtier.

My stepdad thinks it's a good thing to have a dog lick an open wound, since their mouths are so clean or whatever. Dogs eat poop. I've always wanted to scream at him "That's disgusting! Would you spread shiat on your cuts?" I'm afraid of the answer though, so I don't.

I guess subby does. The rest of us know that dogs eat shiat.

And when my dog is not licking his taint he's sometimes licking my other dog's junk.

yes, but everyone knows peanut butter is a great antibiotic

Not clicking. The Daily Mail would warn that smiling can give you cancer. They only report things meant to scare old people.

Gyrfalcon: coco ebert: Who the f*ck thinks a dog's mouth is clean?

In the ancient time before the internets, this was a common piece of conventional wisdom. Dear Abby (the newspaper equivalent of a weblog) went around constantly telling people that dog mouths were cleaner then human mouths, and some people took this advice the wrong way. I remember at least one comic strip (The Phantom?) having a line about dogs' mouths being antiseptic, with a subplot about wolf saliva being needed to cure a rare jungle infection or something.

/which goes to show you how stupid people could be before the internet

My old cat bit my thumb one time. Within a few hours, my thumb was red and swollen with the bite oozing green. I'd even put hydrogen peroxide on it. Needless to say, I was at the doctor's office that afternoon and he handed me antibiotics specific for animal bites he kept on hand in the storeroom.

anecdote ahead. fair warning.

i have no idea how "clean" a dog's mouth is.

i let my dog lick my face. we play fetch with a red rubber ball covered in dog saliva.

and i am well aware that this dog licks things that may be gross. animals do things like this.

like a guy not washing his hands after touching his dick in front of a urinal. there was definitely some back-splash. you have shaken the hand of humanity. except that humanity knows better.
