A question about tooth paste!!!???????

Just a question i come across the other day, and could not answer it.

How, does stripy toothpaste come out in order? why dosent it mix inside the tube? is it even mixed inside the tube? how on earth do they get it to come out with each different colour seperated and not mixed?

Anyone know?

Having never used the striped toothpaste (as I was brainwashed by Mrs Marsh as a child) I'm not completely sure but I would assume that they use thin plasic barriers between each colour that stopped before the nozzle so they compress together as you squeeze it out.

What the hell is this place coming to?????? he he

When I had this particular apprentice working for me a few years ago I had him believing McDonalds had specially bred pigs which is why their bacon rashers were round (bacon and Egg McMuffin). I wonder if he has worked it out yet..........

The next time i go to the supermarket, i'm going to buy a tube and find out.

I remember writing a letter to a cheese company to settle a debate over just how they shred the cheese...

Whats the bet Mr Sparkles never used "Stripped" Tooth paste. Something about the colours not co-ordinating.
