This post (and the picture) is based on an old urban legend that there IS such a dye. MiddleFingerMom Jul 2012 #7

You shouldn't have eaten it.

And did you read the label? "Don't swallow, may cause unexpected explosive diarrhea."

Might be a brilliant idea to sell soda at the pool snackshack that contains this dye...

The rumor/legend was that the pool was "treated" in such a way (an invisible way) that would interact with
any pee and turn bright blue -- pointing a humiliating finger at the transpissor.
Like the legend website says, that idea would probably motivate kids to check it out -- even make some sort
of game/competition out of it. I was once a junior counselor on a bus full of kids when virtually all the kids
vomited at LEAST once during the 8-hour trip home. They didn't feel bad (turned out at the ER later that it
was mass hysterical vomiting rather than the food poisoning we feared) and, after the first 5 or 6 threw up...
they turned it into a game -- scoring points if you could splatter the vehicle in the next lane (a motorcycle
would be an immediate WIN!!!) It was disgusting and it was a BLAST!!!
That was NOT a fun ride back, though... all-in-HURRRPPFFF-all!!!
When we got home and I climbed off and looked back at the bus, the sides look like some lunar landscape.
