Umm... hell no. I might consider for $1000... would almost certainly do it for $50,000... but $50? I don't think so.

Teekay I approve of this poll. <3

Also, no I don't think so. Unless I was hungry and starving and needed the $50 to pay off the mob so that I wouldn't get attacked on the way to the grocery store to buy a box of cherry pies to eat on the way to the open road, which I would then PUNISH HORRIBLY with a huge motorcycle doing a wheelie

I mean, seriously? The last poll was fine. And if you think you can do better, then PM tk102 with it.
Either way, stop complaining.

Anyway, as for the poll: no. I have much more dignity than that.

I think it depends on the lick required, if its just one quick lick then I might consider it.

You know I probably would if it had never been used in a toilet before, but you never specified that.

I voted "no" just in case. Very useful question there tk.

Hmmm, maybe if I was a heroin junkie and it was either that or blowing some guy. I think $200 is the lowest I would go, and I'd want access to mouthwash immediately afterwards.

Hey no worries guys. We had a Pepsi v. Coke poll last year -- now that's scraping the bottom of the barrel.

To the people that said no: are you afraid of germs or the social stigma of being a plunger-licker or you couldn't live with yourself or what? Explain why you don't want the easy cash-money.

Couldn't be much worse than some dog owners 'kissing' their pet (ick). And they do that for free. ewww, eww and double-ewww

I mean, if we're talking a swish in the average home throne.. then maybe. I'd have to be bare-arse broke and quite drunk.

If it was used to "clear some pipes" from a NY subway restroom.. err, no thanks.

Having gone through some medical procedures this year including an over $2000.00 two block ambulance ride, I’m holding out for more money. The risk is significantly greater than the award with the price set at $50.00.

It really depends on if the toilet the plunger was used on was used. I don't see anything wrong with licking a piece of rubber that was submerged in potable water.

Well, I guess a gerbil wasn't big enough.

$50 is wayyyy to little for something so potentially unsanitary. Now....if the toilet brush were brand new (unused) and used to mix spiked punch (or any good tasting booze/mix), I'd probably go for the $50.

I've taken microbiology. I've cultured some of the germs that could live on plungers. It's not pretty. The 5-second rule does not apply to anything that goes in toilets.
