Brushing Teeth

And now, a musing. Why is it that toothbrush companies want to make their products XXXTreme? I mean, isn't it enough to say "This toothbrush keeps your teeth clean!"? Why do they have to go out and say stupid things like "New flexbristle technology with virus-killing DESTRUCTOIDS!"

Toothbrushes aren't XXXTreme. They're not even cool. They're...well, toothbrushes. They brush teeth, and they don't do much else. Sometimes they clean other things.

Toothbrush companies: No amount of rebranding is going to make your products any more cool and desirable. Just stop now while you can still save a little face.
