NewsTalk 100 Reports That Halls Has It

This morning NewsTalk 100 reported that there is an outbreak of Shigellosis. They reported that three schools have had outbreaks. Adrian Burnett, Inskip and Powell. Adrian Burnett is in Halls.

So when someone from Halls says "Halls Has It" tell them to keep it. Because the symptoms of Shigellosis is:

Diarrhea (two or more loose or watery stools per day – outside of usual bowel pattern); may have blood or mucous in stool.

Abdominal cramping

Vomiting

Fever

Hump over at Humphamers in Powell started this response several years ago "Halls Has It but Penicillin will cure it." Evidently, penicillin may not treat Shigellosis. Only hand washing will prevent the spread.

how are sick kids funny?

Obviously only a tabloid employee would "spin" to ask this question.

The funny comes from a stupid slogan, that can be incorporated into even the most unfortunate of incidents.

Knox Countians didn't select the stupid slogan.

nausea, diarrhea, vomiting...Those are the same symptoms I get when reading your blog.

Hey iggy, The good news for you is that you don't have to begin hand washing. You can simply not log on.

Carry on with your unhealthy ways.
