Pretty in Pink

Heavens to Murgatroyd, a town in Ohio (friggin home of Bearman) has pink water coming out of the faucets. Apparently, the bright colour is due to a malfunction at the water treatment plant. Whoopsie, too much sodium permanganate. My bad?

Despite the scary colour, authorities have announced, “the chemical is not dangerous if ingested, but it could dye clothes washed in affected water.” You know what, I would be stepping away from the taps, shower, dishwasher and washing machine and taking a nice vacation or alternatively give Erin Brockovich a buzz.

PSST If you really want to worry just Google “Is sodium permanganate dangerous?”
