Monday gaaaaaaaaah!reetings from dank, Happy Larryville, GN!

In addition to Ebola and Enterovirus D-68, Bakersfield, CA has an outbreak of menacing clowns!!1!

“A clown is funny in the circus ring. But what would be the normal reaction to opening a door at midnight, and finding the same clown standing there in the moonlight?” -- Lon Chaney, Sr.

And most terrifying of all, Ebola is threatening much of the world’s chocolate supply.

I’m going back to bed.

Good morning, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning Fatwa!

If I had any Photochops, I’d make an image of a Hershey bar with Ebola, but since I don’t, I won’t.

From Jammie Wearing Fools

The First Duffer reached a milestone Sunday, playing his 200th round of golf since taking office, according to CBS News White House correspondent Mark Knoller.

President Barack Obama teed it up at Fort Belvoir Golf Club, but no details were provided on who rounded out the president’s group.

Hey, it’s not like there’s anything else going on in the world, and if there is, he can always read about it in the paper.

Hai, Paddy!

…I’d make an image of a Hershey bar with Ebola…

Personally, I prefer crisped rice.

Gummint hard at work keeping us safe -- Agencies at odds over Ebola-waste disposal:

Due to specific Ebola-related regulations issued by the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), which governs what medical waste companies can and cannot transport, the usual waste haulers or medical waste disposal companies are prohibited from accepting Ebola-contaminated waste until it has been sterilized. For most health care facilities in the U.S., that’s not possible, Duchin said.
--
Few U.S. hospitals are equipped with incinerators or large sterilizers called autoclaves needed to safely handle soiled linens, contaminated syringes and virus-spattered protective gear generated from the care of an Ebola patient. The waste needs to be treated before it can travel over public roads.
--
“The medical waste companies are refusing to come and pick up the waste because of the DOT regulations, which the CDC does not agree with,” Duchin said. The CDC considers Ebola waste to be appropriate for handling by the medical waste companies, Duchin said.

It’s like a well-oiled Rube Goldberg machine.

It’s like a well-oiled lubed Rube Goldberg machine.

FIFY

Don’t forget that oil lube is for the machine’s protection, not yours, peasant. (Which is why they don’t put it on the pointy bits.)

“Ow…quit it!”

Poor kitty.

Can you catch Ebola on the golf course?

I finally found something worthwhile on Netflix. It’s a BBC show called Copper, set in New York in 1864. Although they only ran two seasons, quite enjoyable.
