Sounds like nothing but a good time to me.

If drinking bleach is wrong I don't want to be right. No wait, I mean alive.

Can they correlate any spikes with advice from Dr. "what do you have to lose" Trump?

Mostly, no. This is basically about a rise in contacts to poison control from the start of the pandemic in Washington state, not a rise in actual poisonings nationally since April, which is what the idiot in the Oval Office would be responsible for.

It's actually a very boring and pointless article, even if you live in the one state where it's sort of relevant.

Well, chloroform isn't really a disinfectant. But, does this rag smell bad?

The specifics are a bit dated, but still appropriate.

I thought you were supposed to inject it.

You know what? I prefer this. Results in actual death, rather than clogging up hospital space and endangering health workers when they catch COVID trying to get a goddam haircut for freedumb.

That looks like weird seasonal GT's kombucha I drank not long ago.

Well, just like all pools need a dose of shock and chlorination to stay clean, our gene pool needs a good dose of chlorine.  Drink up trumpanzees, your savior has commanded it.

Now, if they just make it a thing at that rally in OK.

I always found it kind of adorable how right wing drones were so smug during the Tide Pods stupidity because they'd been instructed to believe that said stupidity was somehow unique to left-leaning Millennials ™.

I knew it was just a matter of time before they actually started drinking bleach because Lord Dampnut told them to, I just didn't know exactly how long it would take.

It was a known unknown.

Dude.

No one has been found to have drank bleach because of Trump's remarks.

Well, you can't really ask them why after they're dead, can you?

And "have drank", really?  C'mon, up your game a little.

I don't care for ammonia, but I do like my chlorine to be mixed with sodium. I usually have some every day with dinner.

Na, there's a slight but important difference between chlorine and chloride.

Sadly the Alcohol Tobacco Firearms agency isn't the best store in the world, as I found out one day.

Given the demand on cleaning products being desired - this looks pretty impressive to me. Would have expected a higher spike in misuse but it overlays 2019 pretty well on exposure calls. Might as well just right click on the graphic -> view image and read the graph as as a large image, It's easier to just read the damn graph rather seeing an article dotted with some percentages and no number value. The only interesting spike I see is the information request section for Covid-19 info - which is understandable given all the conflicting info flying around at that point.
