Every rose has its thorn, right? I couldn't give a shit frankly, this thread is about actual poisons, toxins etc not bands with members who've filmed themselves fucking Pamela Anderson.
Anyone mentioning Brett Michaels or anyone else who was in that lamentable hair metal band will simply look foolish. A bit like Balonz with a bob.
Here's a fact for you...
Although lead has not been used for writing since antiquity, lead poisoning from pencils was not uncommon. Until the middle of the 20th century the paint used for the outer coating could contain high concentrations of lead, and this could be ingested when the pencil was sucked or chewed.
Oh the irony etc.
