Bird Droppings

Bird droppings don't just mess up your car, they can also give you a superbug (which is why you should avoid driving behind trucks carrying chickens).

If birds could talk, they'd tell you to beware of seagulls as well: Migratory seagulls carry antibiotic-resistant strains of bacteria to Portuguese islands which are a protected wildlife habitat.

In humans, superbugs are caused by overexposure to antibiotics, but this isn't how seagulls are getting them. Instead, they are eating human garbage and catching them from people (for a change).

In this recession (NOTE: Subscribers can still listen to this show), we're wondering if some sort of superbug hasn't attacked all the readers and listeners who claim to love this website so much. Despite having no advertising on other media, we have 60% more readers and listeners than we did a year ago, through word-of-mouth alone. Now if only more of you would support us, there's a chance we might still be here tomorrow!
