A philosopher who was surprised in the act was asked what he was doing. He replied quite coolly: ‘I am planting a man,’ not blushing at being discovered at that any more than if he had been discovered planting garlic.
~ Montaigne, Apology for Raymond Sebond
It’s curious (though irrelevant) to note that both planting a man and eating garlic are enough to temporarily ban a person from participation in the mysteries of several religions. An act or period of cleansing is required. More secular doctrine only recommends that tooth brushing precede the one while following the other.
