Do you like the taste of antifreeze?

This just posted on our company Intranet:

Jeffrey Bye, vice president of Honeywell Consumer Products Group’s Prestone® brand, testified Tuesday in front of a U.S. Senate subcommittee in support of legislation mandating a bitter-tasting chemical to be added to all antifreeze products to prevent children and pets from accidentally ingesting it. According to the Doris Day Animal League, a Washington advocacy group, approximately 1,400 children and 10,000 household pets ingest antifreeze each year. With state laws regarding the bittering agent already passed in California, New Mexico and Oregon, and eight other states considering similar bills, Bye testified that Honeywell’s Prestone® business would support legislation that would set a uniform standard and simplify the production and distribution process. According to Bye, the proposed legislation would “provide fair responsibility for the antifreeze … products by assigning liability between the respective manufacturers.” Honeywell is the largest manufacturer and supplier of antifreeze in North America.

It's delicious, but it gives me gas something fierce.

I do all my own stunts.

I had a good taste of it when I pulled the rad on my 1000. I pulled and pulled at the hose until it popped off and showered me with delicious green goodness.

I wish I had it on video, that had to look hilarious.

And then there's this asshole...

The Austrailian wine market is behind this! Its an effort to thwart the practices of those frenchies doping up thier wine with anti freeze for export.

Can't fool me I saw the Simpsons exchange student episode!

well maybe if they didn't make it look like ecto-cooler (anyone remember that stuff?) we wouldn't drink it.

if you can't convince them, confuse them.
