    Garlic - the first or second line of defence?

    Ok - I am in flippant mood!

    So - we may well expect a confrontation to be close - ''bad breath distance'' - so I wonder can we use garlic and so breathe hard at our aggressor, to gain advantage!?

    If not garlic then - something chewable that still does not knock us out, but has ''halitosis knockdown potential'' LOL .

    I always heard Clarke Gable had awful halitosis - and he was never attacked AFAIK - see, maybe it works!

    BTW - I am not considering vampire encounters

    Wow I'm in a weird mood too.

    I'd say it would only work if the offending substance happened to be in your mouth at the time so you could actually spit it out at them.

    Hehehe - great pics QK. Even if I succeed in having you at a loss for words - at least I can be fairly sure you'll come up with some good relevent pics - and you did!!

    That Blazing Saddles one - had totally forgotten that scene LOL!

    OK - I'll try and find my ''sensible'' switch again

    You guys laugh at this subject but there is some truth in the having something in your mouth defence. As a tobacco chewer (bad habit I know) I have had the opportunity to get some juice in the eyes of a guy who was about to send me to my dentist. It was amazing how quickly his additude changed. So...funny topic but there is a valid point in there.

    I once had to work with an illustrator who must've had the world's worst breath. I rolled my office chair back and I was still trying not to gag.

    Mrshonts and I just took a CPR/basic first aid course this weekend. Those masks they have so you can perform CPR without putting your mouth on someone else's is a great idea for preventing who-knows-what transfering to you.

    I've always wondered if a "I've got (insert STD here) and I'm gonna spit on you and bite you if you try anything" defense would work.
