Have Cornelius And Zira Had Their Shots?
Let me understand this: monkeypox is spread by prairie dogs?? Then why isn't it called prairie pox? Hmm...wait a second...I think I know why.
Try saying "prairie pox". Ok?
Now say it five times fast. Go ahead, I'll wait.
See? You can't do it.
I hope this revelation contributes to the discovery of a cure.
Noted monkeypox observationist James Lileks offers these monkeypox observations:
Those of us in the news business enjoy a story like this, because we get to use phrases like "infected prairie dog," that rarely come up, unless that's your beat. And the things you learn: The verminous creatures were sold at Phil's Pocket Pets in Chicago. Got that? Pocket pets. Usually, if someone said "I have a prairie dog in my pocket" I would be inclined to say "I'm sure you do" and move a few feet away. Now I will run, lest a poxy dog burst from the guy's fanny pack like the alien in the sci-fi movie and fasten itself to my face.
