We do to things ...

A few days ago I expressed frustration with my floss dispenser, since bits of floss get stuck in its floss-cutter, necessitating that the floss-cutter be flossed. After rummaging about in my memory for a few days I thought of an excellent remedy for this problem, from a fake advertisement that ran in Columbia College's humor magazine, Jester, in the 1950's. The ad, in small type, proudly proclaimed “We do to things what they do to other things! We'll dry your dryer, iron your iron, wash your washing machine, etc.”
It's a pity it wasn't a real company. I'm sure they'd have been happy to floss my flosser.
