I’m a complete fanatic about having fresh breath. I eat mints like they were my last meal, and I keep a toothbrush and toothpaste in my car. You can never be too sure, right? To me, there is almost nothing worse in a guy than disgusting breath (ok, I can think of one or two things worse, but bad breath is still up there towards the top).
In hopes of assisting those with “chronic gross breath,” back in the summer of 2009, I wrote this article about how to tell if you have bad breath. Today I just found out about this awesome Japanese invention that tells you exactly how bad your breath really is. Hmm… is it possible this could be more reliable than the “blow in hand and smell” method? I think so.
Guess what? It also tells you if you are too drunk to drive. It displays six different levels of “something crawled up in you and died” breath. And, yes, in case you are wondering, I’m laughing my ass over here. Why is it that the Japanese always come up with the coolest stuff? Dang. I have to give them a huge thumbs up on this one. It seems like a bargain for only $63 bucks. You can buy your own Topland Etiquette Checker at the Japan Trend Shop.
