Purex laundry detergent has a commercial in which a businessman is actually a fish. He's wearing human clothes, but he has a great big fish head. Two co-workers, a man and a woman are talking in the cafeteria line, and the man says to the woman with a concerned look, "I think Bob is a fish." The woman leans over to Bob, smells his clothes, and replies with disdain, "If he were a fish, don't you think his clothes would smell like fish?" The commercial goes on to laud the value of the laundry detergent that completely removes the fish smell from Bob the fish's clothes. We laugh at the commercial, because we know that clean clothes cannot change the real person – or fish, in this case. When I read the Bible, I find that I am like Bob the fish.
