Figure from a possibly-innovative neti pot patent

This lovely drawing, below, is part of Syeda J.Z. Mansur‘s 2008 US patent application (#12/072,970) for a possibly-innovative  “Portable sinus and throat cleansing system and method“.

The inventor is pictured here, right.

BONUS: The water matters, especially in parts of Louisiana.

BONUS TO THE BONUS (unrelated, except that it related to Louisiana): Water and oil, mixed like a metaphor, then separated.
