Last Week's Answer: Electronic Meat Sniffer Congratulations to Sum Ergo Edo for the first correct guess! As a most-awesome and coveted prize, your name will be mentioned in the product description below.

For those of you who pride yourselves on incredibly clean hands, never touching the closet doorknobs and sporting an array of disinfectants Howard Hughes would be proud of, comes the Electronic Meat Sniffer. With the push of a button (feel free to sanitize beforehand) the freshness meter will let you know if meat and poultry is still edible by indicating one of three colors: Green = good; Yellow = use soon: And red = the-bacteria-colony-count-exceeds-10-million-colony-forming-units-per-gram-proceed-with-complete-mental-breakdown-in-five, four, three... Sure, you could spend nothing and use your nose instead; but isn't a maggot up your schnoz or leaving the security of your germ-free home to ask your germ-ridden neighbor, Sum Ergo Edo, to "smell your meat" as embarrassing as it is risky? We thought so.
