So. There I was eating my delicious subway sandwich filled with Turkey, Ham and my usual choice of condiment, mayonnaise. Scrolling through the Neowinian forms having a jolly good time a speckle of mayonnaise, unknowingly to me, decided to find a snuggled up place upon my index finger of which to settle in. Little did I know that morsel of delectable mayo' was headed right for the crevices of my website navigation tool! Before I knew it I had, what was once a delicious condiment, sprawled out within the cracks and creeks of my Mouse. "Oh no!", I proclaimed.

 

After a few minutes of searching my desk for a utility of both thinness and strength I stumbled upon an old cable tie. "Perfect!". I placed the cable tie into the crease of my Mouse and flicked out the mayonnaise AND what appears to be a timely mass of, what I'll refer to as, 'stuff'. Needless to say this ruined me finishing my sandwich. Which was already on the way out as I had just finished reading a post about the detailed reasoning behind why a member of Neowin wears underwear to protect 'sharts' from escaping. So having said all this, and you sticking by to the end, I'll be giving away a free copy of Scrolls by Mojang to a random person that posts in this thread. Only if they use the word "Meow" in their post and not directly explain, at all, the reason behind using the word. The result will be tomorrow at around this time to the winner. I'm going to have to throw out this sandwich.

 

What an adventure in mayonnaise cleaning that will go on only in my memories. Let this be a lesson. If you don't clean your mouse, don't do it while you're eating a delicious Turkey and Ham sandwich. Not only will it be disgusting, but you ruin the sandwich.

 

That is all.

Mice aren't that difficult to take apart and clean.  I've been using the same one for the last 8+ years (guesstimate).

 

If it's worth your time doing.  Mice are pretty cheap, but you do get what you pay for.

One of the best posts I've seen on neowin. Btw I hope this gets you to clean your mouse more lol. Canned air and a thin pry tool work. Depends on the mouse too.

Oh and go listen to ratchet(meow version).

Hello,

Question: What type of sandwich are we talking about exactly from Subway that spits now mayonnaise onto a poor innocent mouse that was simply trying to view what you were looking at on your PC?

Id file a lawsuit....animal cruelty.

Oh wait.....never meowmind
