Herman Melville & the Allegheny County Health Department - Wash your hands / Call me Ishmael

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.

I like this a lot.

Me too. It's cute.

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.

Nice long copy. Don't see that much these days.

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

It is better to fail in originality than to succeed in imitation.

wait, wrong quote for this context... I mean the reverse. No. Wait. Oh neeeeveermiind. ;)
