From what I understand, in general, there are 3 kinds of scum and they are all icky.
- Soap Scum. Mommy doesn’t like soap scum so she gets a grapefruit from the tree in the backyard and scrubs the big sink with it before I get a bath. Mommy complains about the grapefruit, soap, scum and sink for 20 minutes and my bath only takes 2 minutes. The rest of my bath time is spent drinking my bath water, soaking, swimming and relaxing. In my opinion if Mommy doesn’t like the soap scum she should quit using soap.
- Pond Scum. Not sure what the big deal is with pond scum, we don’t even have a pond, but apparently ‘Pond Scum’ is a verb used to describe anyone who has ever dated Aunt Fancy.
- Scum-of-the-Earth. This is complicated. ‘Scum-of-the-Earth’ is a term used to describe people who make promises and then they don’t follow up on those. Mostly politicians. (I am going to run for Congress someday and I won’t make any promises so that I don’t worry about keeping them)
