In Memorium

It is with heavy heart and lighter wallet that I inform our legion of blogophiles the Hawley company has lost a dear friend today. At 1:47 PM, Melvin Baxter, break room dish sponge and devoted family man, was thrown away after being deemed "too freaking nasty" by the powers that be . After what seemed like decades of service in cleaning coffee mugs, lunch plates, and silverware, Melvin's bacterial spokespersons Clostridium Botulinum and Acinetobactor Baumannii said that it was "time for Melvin to explore other options" and "He had reached an impasse with the dishes and mugs. It occured to him he was actually spreading more bacteria and disease than cleaning up." In an interview with "Sponge and Ammo" last November, an exhausted Melvin questioned whether it was time to "hang it up" and let a younger, safer, less feculent cleaning device have a go at Dave Carson's never-ending mug of sludge. You will be missed, you nasty, nasty, nasty, nasty sponge...
