Darwin Rolls Over In Grave As Canada Issues Warning Not To Eat Laundry Pods

Health Canada’s warning to not eat the laundry pods (designed to be thrown in a washing machine and wash clothes) surely has Charles Darwin spinning in his grave. It probably has others determined to take the warnings off of everything too, and let evolution handle things.

Let’s face it. If you have to be told NOT to eat soap, you’re probably already on a lower evolutionary rung than a fish. But that’s exactly what Health Canada thought their people needed. If we were Canadian, we wouldn’t know if we should be offended that the government thinks we are complete doofuses, or happy that those who may eat laundry pods can actually read enough and comprehend and heed a warning.

According to The Hive, the reminder comes after an ongoing Internet joke about “Tide Pods” and how they look like a delicious snack. We’re not even sure where this idea came from, but social media has been going wild with “Tide Pod” memes recently.

Seriously. You don’t even have to document the quickly deteriorating IQ numbers.  Just spend a few minutes on social media.

But the joke caught the attention of the Canadian government, who obviously thinks their citizenry is so ill-informed that they need a reminder and a warning not to eat dissolvable laundry pods.

This lovely little tweet basically makes Canadians look too stupid to function. “Sometimes it’s not that easy to tell the difference,” the warning reads. Really? Seriously? But again, this is a government agency, inept on every level and attempting to cater to the lowest common denominator. They probably can’t tell the difference, so they assume others can’t either. It’s cool though. Let’s put the government in charge of healthcare! Because, you know, they have been on the ball with warnings not to eat laundry soap!

“Because laundry detergent packets are small and often brightly colored, children can mistake them for food or toys,” said Health Canada in a statement. It’s a good thing they clarified “children” could mistake these things for food.

But on another note, do parents need to be told to not let their kids play with laundry detergent? Apparently. And all of a sudden, all of the UN’s population control schemes seem to make sense.
