I like this one. The Colgate-Palmolive company has recalled all of their battery-operated toothbrushes. Why? Because it's been reported that they explode. Talk about an assassination attempt gone wrong. This is something straight out of a thriller novel that ranks high with the exploding cigar that the CIA once used in their attempt to bump off Fidel Castro It didn't work of course.
You might want to be careful what you end up purchasing at a blowout sale.
