In that bastion of capitalism & good taste (the USA, where else) an enterprising company has just sold-out its entire “Ebola stock”, including the “Small Ebola Doll”( $9.95), the very large “Gigantic Ebola Doll” ($29.95) & the back-to-school “Ebola Petri Dish” ($14.95) according to the company’s website.
“Since its discovery in 1976, Ebola has become the T. Rex of microbes,” says the Stamford, Connecticut-based maker of the “uniquely contagious toys” on its website, which promotes them as gifts that also have an “educational value”.
During the latest Ebola outbreak, which has already killed more than 4,500 people, discerning customers, looking for that special something for the gifting season, have snapped up the toys, which look like an untied pretzel (except for the “Ebola Petri Dish”, which looks like an untied pretzel on a petri dish).
“You do not want to get Ebola,” suggests the website, offering a clear glimpse into the level of healthcare advice under the iniquitous Obamacare dictatorship. “A short incubation period of 2 to 21 days presages symptoms which include fever, aches, sore throat, & weakness, followed by diarrhea, stomach pain, vomiting, & both internal & external bleeding…. & then, for between 50-90% of victims, death.”
Sadly beyond suggesting that you don’t want to catch the disease the advice doesn’t go on to suggest how you might avoid Ebola, but at least if it does arrive you’ll know what it looks like.
