In discussing this post, the Jezebel staff discovers that we each have unique and occasionally disgusting philosophies about eating stuff that fell on the ground.
KATE: i have a friend who eats stuff off the street when sober
KATE: or like, has once
KATE: it was an ice cream bar
KATE: p. gross
JESSICA: once is all it takes to become that person
ISHA: I'm not going to judge. but NO.
ISHA: like...was it melted at all?
KATE: it had just hit the new york city street
ISHA: does the five second rule count for ice cream?
HILLARY: Naw fam, naw.
ERIN: everything in the world was dinosaur pee at one point
HILLARY: The ice cream sucks in all the street bits too? Ew.
ERIN: your eyeballs are made of dinosaur pee.
MADELEINE: was it their ice cream?
KATE: i think she actually said
KATE: "five second rule"
MADELEINE: or a strangers?
KATE: this was in high school
KATE: we were stronger then
KATE: or dumber
KATE: or both
ISHA: erin that's like the complete opposite of the NDT star stuff quote
ERIN: well the pee is more recent than the stars
ERIN: let's be real
MADELEINE: i'm not saying i would do that, but i'm also not saying i wouldn't do that
ERIN: we were more recently piss puddles than star explosions.
MADELEINE: here's protocol when you drop food on the ground: 1. pick it up 2. act like you're hanging onto it to throw it away 3. wait enough time that people stop thinking about the initial drop 4. subtly eat
