Amusing Monday: Dirty water contains a message

Human waste along the Skokomish River recently triggered the closure of shellfish beds downstream in Hood Canal. While there is nothing amusing about that, a lot of us learned how worried health officials can become about the transmission of human pathogens.

The health concerns are very real. Some groups have tried to convey the concerns with entertaining videos about water quality, particularly in countries where sanitary facilities are lacking.

I’d like to share some take-offs of old movies and a TV commercial put together by the online magazine “Good.” The occasion was World Water Day in March, created by the United Nations to call attention to the importance of clean water.

The altered movies are “Cool Hand Luke” and “Psycho.” Click here to see the commercial for “Crocodile Mile.”

For good measure, I’ve thrown in something called “Good Water.”
