Nothing, but if I get 'selective nuclear strike' or 'intelligent bear takeover' I win.

I take it that these deli meat providers were trying to pass it off as fresh due to recent under sales and the pandemic. That's unconscionable.

While I understand the concern, it's only a bug. No need to become listerical.

As usual I died of dysentery.

Deli meat was the likely the source of the outbreak, the agency said. Nine victims reported eating Italian-style meats, such as salami, though the CDC has yet to identify a common meat or supplier as the source.

Why are they so vague?  Well,

Symptoms of infection usually begin one to four weeks after eating contaminated food... Previous Listeria outbreaks have been linked to hard boiled eggs, mushrooms and soft cheeses.

I suspect they're not even certain it was "Italian-style meats."

Speaking of words that sound like lysteria, my neighbor had some wysteria growing over his fence. Very pretty when blossoming. Another neighbor, a dumbass knowitall, asked "What's the name of the flower again?" Wysteria. "That's right. Mysteria."

My other neighbor and I had a laugh about that for a long time.

Wysteria. Pretty, but invasive as heck. If you don't prune it and keep it in check, it will choke out any and every other plant in its path as it takes over your yard.
