A local man has openly questioned the ability of his shower gel to harmonise, claiming it’s yet another example of unrealistic characteristics being attributed to inanimate objects. Cameron Young made the observation yesterday while washing himself in the shower, and then shared it over breakfast with the family.

Speaking later to The Watsonia Bugle, Young said, “Seriously, who is my shower gel harmonising with? The shampoo? Conditioner? Face wash? They’re kidding themselves. This wanky naming of things has gone too far.”

When questioned over whether this was the kind of issue to get so wound up about, Young said, “You let them get away with this kind of stuff and then progressively they try more and more things. Before you know it, they’re monitoring your whole life big brother style. I’m telling ya, that’s how it all starts!”
