Mildew alert.

How the hell do you wring out the sponge?

I'm a Puget Sound native and I have heard of these "um-ba-rell-a" devices, yet I don't know anyone who uses them.

That wet sponge is going to be a mildew farm.

Obama will be coming by to tax your profits on the mildew.

Smell that mildew? If you've got it, you didn't get there on your own. Some sporulating mold did it, most likely Stachybotrys chartarum. There was a colony of that great American slime mold somewhere in your house. Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American ecosystem that we have that allowed your sponge to becoming a thriving, pungent wad of suppurating microfungus. Government spending on cellulosic sponge producton was there. If you’ve got a moldy UnmbrellaSponge -- you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen. Sponge-based accessory storage technology didn’t get invented on its own. Government research created the Internet so that companies that build umbrella stands with sponges capable of hosting mold colonies could make money off the Internet.

Mildew-shmildew. If you used disposable umbrellas like a lot of us do down here in NM you would not have a mildew problem, nor difficulties with the Federales.

Some of us are so advanced, we don't need no steenkin' umbrellas. Our skin is waterproof. So there.

and how to speed improving the lungs system to back to normal.
