Well if you want to get technical.Your paragraphs are incorrect. You could also use a D0UCHEBAG for cleaning your rims on your car if you really wanted too. But that still doesnt take away its original product intent, and patented features. So you've failed to correct anything in my previous post, other than the spelling of a short balding actor.
