Starve a Cold, Beat a Fever

Post by Travelin Corpse Feet » Tue Apr 17, 2012 10:24 pm

“Well Ted, I’ve got some bad news.”

“Give it to me straight, doc,” I said.

“Your bleeding gums? Turns out it’s the silent killer… ninjavitis.

“Oh, hell! What can I do?”

“There’s one treatment, but it’s risky.”

“I’ll do anything doc.”

The doctor reached into a drawer, retrieved a syringe and stuck the needle into a jar on the counter, drawing up a white fluid. He held the full syringe up, and I heard a tiny war cry as something impacted the glass from inside, making the doctor’s hand shake.

“Ted, I’m going to inject you with… the kung flu.”

It's such a powerless feeling to have to stand by and watch that happen to someone you care about. You just wish we had some way to administer electroshock therapy...develop an app or something.

Until that happy day, we're just stuck with what we do have: some guy from Craigslist with a taser.
