Uh oh, I don't think the Elephants will mix well with the riots.

Unless there's some Indians, maybe they can ride them.

You can't call them West Nile Virus and St. Louis Encephalitis anymore because that's racist.  Naming diseases after the areas where there were first discovered is bad practice.
 
2020-06-02 2:57:29 PM  
At least they're not carrying Manhattan Meningitis or Cleveland Chlamydia!

\ Or Eugene Ebola!

I've heard that the British used to call syphilis the French Pox. The French, of course, called it the British Pox.

St. Louis Encephalitis? Is it grilled and tossed into a lot of sauce?

That was the schedule.  But that fat f*ck Barr keeps falling off the horse.  We're going to substitute an elephant for the horse.

As long as they don't have the Macon Gonorrhea, we'll be ok. I think.

We have West Nile here in Ontario but I've never heard of St. Louis Encephalitis.

We used to have a program where you could report a dead bird to some government office and they would autopsy it to track West Nile.

West Nile is not a big deal for most people. I used to work outdoors, so I can assume I've had it before, and didn't notice more than sniffles.

St. Louis encephalitis? How can you tell?

West Nile sucks.
While I didn't get formally tested, way back in The Summer Of The Dead Crows, I came down with a fever and headache.  Was a horrible few days, and I count myself lucky I didn't need to go to the hospital.  Damnedest thing, for years afterwards, some mosquito bites would puss out and could be popped like zits.

Sorry you got a bad case of the Mummy's Curse. Ewwww hahaha cool party trick though.

Calling it West Nile is racist.

West Nile Virus is a thing that 'invades' every summer.  Although very few people actually get it.  And only an incredibly tiny minority actually develop severe symptoms.

There's a reason it's called West Nile Virus.  It's endemic to that region of the world and doesn't really go elsewhere much.

soon assholes will be walking around with no shirts demanding their rights to not be restrained by a bug hoax.

"St Louis Encephalitis"? Heck, the city's still paying for the Dome they've gotta fill it somehow.

Calling a disease after the geographical place it was discovered isn't an ethnic joke.  Only a true dickhead would think it was.

I'm *SURE* you don't really believe what you're saying.

No, but you were here a few weeks ago whining about the Fark filters interfering with your jokes. And you still haven't gotten over it.

It's almost almost as though if Farkers can't crap their pants every freaking day, every freaking hour, they just can't exist.
