Cross-contamination

Recommended Posts

My husband thought of this as an alternative to the phrase cross contamination.

Second-hand gluten.

I like it. Because of how much people know about second-hand smoke, the seriousness about cross contamination is still intact. But then it also helps because it doesn't sound quite so off the wall when you're explaining it to someone for the first time.

What do you guys think?

Nancy

I like it.

It brings it into a whole new light. Cross contamination kind of sounds like we are paranoid. Second-hand does sound serious. Look how people get hyper over the smoking thing. I really like it!!!!

What a great phrase. Peoples eyes would be less likely to glaze over that one.

A brilliant idea, I love it!

But for those of us that are keyboard challenged, CC is so much easier to type than second hand gluten B)

j,

Good point. But that's easy enough to fix, for the administrator. I've often wondered why CC isn't flagged the same as g f.

Ok then it's settled...

We'll go with SHG instead of CC, as long as we don't confuse SHG with MSG which everyone knows was created by the CIA and FBI to give us all IBS and thus take over the USA after they discarded the KGB, who shot JFK B)

LOL

...And I like the new phrase too. It does sound more like something those "gluten-mongers" can grasp.

As he should be. Tell him we'll make him an honorary Celiac, but we'll look the other way if he wants to cheat on the diet B)

I like it. It makes it sound more like the person preparing the food wasn't clean enough and left all that nasty old pre-used, second hand gluten all over the food. It's no longer me being paranoid, it's them being unsanitary.

Now all we have to do is get restaurants to have Glutening and Non-Glutening sections. If we do this right, eventually people will have to go outside to eat gluten. :D

Or am I getting carried away? :P

Carried away not at all. Not many would sit in a restaurant with someone spraying insecticide in the next booth, not much difference in my opinion.
