DO PEOPLE STILL WEAR FROCKS?
Like curry stains.
"A washing machine has been launched for the Indian market, with a special mode to tackle curry stains. Panasonic said the introduction of a 'curry' button followed complaints from customers struggling to fully get the food off their clothes.
... development took two years, testing combinations of water temperature and water flow. The machine has five other cycles aimed at the Indian consumer, including one to remove traces of hair oil."

Well golly. I too can see the usefulness of this.
Heretofore I ate my curries naked.
I dined alone.
"High tech is potent, precise, and in the end, unbeatable. The truth is, it reminds a lot of people of the way I pitch horseshoes. Would you believe some of the people? Would you believe our dog? Look, I want to give the high-five symbol to high tech."
-----George Bush, 1989
The gadget costs around $330.oo, which puts it well within reach of most San Francisco curry-eating households. Where previously we might disrobe before tackling that plate of roghan josh, naans, chaval ki pulao, sarson, and achaar, now we need not fear those intense reds and yellows.
Heck, don't even roll up your sleeves.
I am overjoyed.
And I realize that I need to find someone with whom to eat curry. Because there simply is more choice when two people dine together.
Mutual exploring, zestiness, and all that.
Don't worry about your pretty frock.
