As you near Superbowl Sunday, with the fun parties of guys and gals watching the game, take care – your friends may be double dippers.
Yes, double dippers, those insensitive folks who dip a chip into the salsa, guacamole, or any other dip you’ve served and go back to dip with the same chip. In the process, they may be harming you and your other guests.
It seems that double-dipping can put 10,000 bacteria from the double-dipper’s mouth back into your dip. Yuck! If the dog-gone-double-dipper has a cold, it’s being spread to everyone in the room, via the chili con queso or the clam dip. What a way to go?
Students at Clemson University, under the direction of Professor Paul L. Dawson tested the theory posed in an episode of Seinfeld, in which George Costanza was accused of ‘double-dipping’. Much to their surprise, they proved the theory was correct. Double-dipping is bad for your health.
So, this year, post a sign “Double Dipping is Down Right Dangerous”. Serve really small chips too, so the double-dippers in your crowd don’t stand a chance, but your health will.
In the meantime, have a great Superbowl Sunday. We hope your favorite team wins.
