Sniglet Of The DayGleemule (glee’ mule) – n. (a unit of measure) One unit of toothpaste, measured from bristle to bristle. (Not to be confused with GLEEMITES, which are petrified deposits of toothpaste found in sinks.)

I’m not sure how many people actually use a gleemule as a unit of measure. It seems like one of those obscure measurements that is not all that accurate, like a cubit. Just like the cubit, the measure of a man’s arm from his elbow to the tip of his middle finger, the gleemule depends on the size of the head of one’s toothbrush. So not only would none of them be exactly the same, there might be more variations than we realise, due to the odd shapes that new toothbrush heads come in, like cubes or diamonds. Some of the rotating heads are even round for polishing. Does a gleemule equal the one standard inch of an old-fashioned 70s-80s brush,or is it the pea-sized amount recommended by most dentists? What of the sniglet’s origin? Gleem toothpaste is still out there, but it does not get the advertising it once did. I suppose it still does the trick when keeping teeth white and one’s breath fresh for hours, but as a unit of measure, you’d best just stick to inches or centimeters.

Sniglet Of The DayGleemites – n. Petrified deposits of toothpaste found in sinks.

If you have gleemites in your basin, it is most likely time to take some comet to the porcelain fixture. If on has kids in the house, gleemites are somewhat difficult to avoid, but somehow, with a little daily cleaning, they won’t stay there for long. We know that kids can be somewhat uncoordinated, and might squeeze the tube a little too hard, and what was once gleemites might look more like the stalagmites in Carlsbad Caverns. A little help in showing them how to use only a pea-sized dot of toothpaste will prevent this, put it won’t prevent the drunken adult trying to cover up his beer-breath from making gleemites either. When it comes to stopping these guys from making gleemites, a little coaching won’t stop them. You can only hope to catch them before the damage has been done. If you can’t, then make them clean the bathroom as a punishment for their foolishness.
