Stops WHAT in your Mouth?

On an entirely different note, are you aware of Imodium?

Well, until the other day, I wasn't. I was strolling down the aisle in a local supermarket, and I saw a load of packets of it hanging on a rack, each one bearing the legend 'Stops Diarrhoea Melts In Your Mouth'.

I don't mind telling you, I'm a bit concerned.

The product website is great, though. You can learn all the myths about diarrhoea -- probably stuff about Herakles and the Augean stables, and maybe about British soldiers with slashed shorts in Burma -- and there's a whole section to help you find toilets. I'm not sure if it links it with a gps-based iPhone application, but if not, Imodium are missing a trick.
