It seems that now would be a good time to give every resident a bucket full of water and a sponge. The ammonia was delivered free of charge. All they need to do to have the cleanest towns in the world is to get on their hands and knees and scrub.

Thanks for the compliment. Isn't that a great idea? Take a catastrophe and turn it into "lemonade." Not really lemonade, because if you made lemonade using ammonia it'd probably kill ya, but lemonade in a metaphorical sense. I say, get down there and start a scrubbin.

Maybe people could have died, but they COULD have scrubbed too. Anything to get out of work. Some people. Go figure. Manna sent down directly from Mr. Clean himself and this is the appreciation he gets?
