Peace in the Middle East

My parents live in Doha on the Persian Gulf. They were over for a visit a few weeks ago and mum left behind some toothpaste. It was colgate but all in arabic. I tried it this morning and there are enough chemicals in it to strip the enamel off your teeth.

Maybe if their toothpaste was as benign as ours then all the conflict and strife in this disturbed region could be brought to a welcome end.

  1. We recently tried a new brand of toothpaste. It was pretty hardcore - even claimed to clean your tongue...

    Sadly it had some other unwanted effects and my wife asked me to stop using it.

    In the spirit of the "two posts vanish" comment below I'll let you wonder!
