Tired of the usual "wash your hands" signs, Herman Melville & the Allegheny County Health Department made their a short story to rival Moby Dick, before you've finished reading it, you've soaped and lathered proper. Spotted in a loo in Pennsylvania by adgrunt Kidsleepy, thanks for sharing.

    They've been running it for years, now, too. If not 'running it,' at least posting it. They had a series of them from different novels, all posted in libraries. Smart work.

    It's easy to write long copy when Herman Melville wrote it for you. :)
