When Laundry Procreates: A Horror Story

I accidentally left some fertile dirty clothing languish in the hamper.

Now I've got an overflowing, overwhelming mountain in the corner of the bedroom.

It's just so hard to tell the males from the females.

That happens to me as well! I left a few articles of clothing on a chair, a couple on the sofa, and suddenly they're huge piles, and i have no idea how the hamper got this full either...I haven't even finished putting the clean clothes i washed last time back in the closets!

I can sooo relate to this, have just been "cutting" a few stragglers upstairs and managed to round them up and pen them in the washing machine.

I'm pretty sure the laundry only reproduces when we're not looking.

ha ha!! Yes, I thought before I left home I'd cleaned, folded, and separated all those frisky clothes, but judging by the ginormous piles when i got home, i missed a few.

It is obviously useless to prevent clothes from procreating, however it must be possible to use DNA protocols to control their self-propagation. Jean-splicing comes to mind, as it should to yours.

Having studied the problem extensively, it occurs to me that the problem is the unregulated permissiveness with which we treat our clothes. Imagine the orgiastic free-for-all we allow when we tumble-dry clothes in the drier on hot setting. How do you expect your favourite things to maintain abstinence in such close proximity? Could you control your urges in similar circumstances, your delicates up against the rough-and-readies? I don't think so. No wonder we have to clean the lint trap so often.

He delicates.
