Ho ho ho job!

Get a gander at what I found on the street today en route to the bus stop after the gym:

Yes, I actually rewound the tape of my walk in order to retrieve this prize from where it lay on the periphery of a mess of sidewalk trash. And yes, in case you’re wondering (and I know you are), when you rewind a portion of your activity, it really does make a “blooopblooorpbleeerp” sound. (Try it.)
So, what I want to know from you is this: Am I the only one who finds this mildly disturbing? NOT my touching of the trash (c’mon, I licked my hands clean, so it’s not like I’m unhygienic or nothin’), but the actual item itself. Please vote in the poll waaaaay below. (Pssst! As of 2:38 p.m., it’s in its proper place!) (For some reason, Pollhost polls always like to distance themselves, physically, from my writing. [Emotionally, they’re right there with me, though.] I’m trying not to take it personally, but after a while it’s hard not to.)

Do you find
this at least mildly disturbing?
Yes yes
No no

P.S. If anyone can tell me how to get rid of the extree space between my text and the poll, I would be so appreciative I might even consider mailing you the Santag. (UPDATE, 2:38 p.m.:  Someone told me how to do it! I am forever grateful!)
