The Daily Ping

The original Ping was painfully written in Perl.

Rulebreaker

So, like, “they” say, “Don’t put anything in the clothes dryer that’s ever had oil on it, even cooking oil. OR ELSE YOU WILL DIE IN A FIERY EXPLOSION.”

But… really? So, if I’ve splatted a touch of canola oil on my shirt while cooking… no more dryer? If I use cloth napkins to wipe my mouth after diving face first into a bowl of popcorn drizzled with olive oil, no more dryer? I can understand something like, oh, I don’t know, deep-frying a pair of dungarees, but does anyone really think, “Ya know, I think I might have had greasy hands when I touched this shirt six years ago. Better line dry it.”?!

So far my house hasn’t exploded.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
