You’re better off drinking the toilet water

This is rather disturbing, especially as I rarely order anything other than water when eating out. The title of the article is “Student finds toilet water cleaner than ice at fast food restaurants.”

Jasmine Roberts, 7th-grade student:
“My hypothesis was that the fast food restaurants’ ice would contain more bacteria that the fast food restaurants’ toilet water.”

I’ll jump to the punch line for you. Roberts was right. Ow.

EDIT: The Consumerist has a brief write-up showing what a moron I was for posting this story and commenting the way I did.  Humor included.
