In case you didn’t hear it from us the first time we mentioned it, petting armadillos could give you leprosy. Yes, seriously, you can get leprosy in the United States, and Florida health officials want to make sure you avoid it: experts in that state are warning residents to resist stroking the little armored creatures, due to a recent uptick in leprosy cases.
If you ever consider snuggling up with an armadillo or having one for lunch, consider whether or not your endeavor is worth the risk of contracting leprosy.
There’s a truly horrifying gaggle of monstrous corporate mascots and images over at Plan 59. 1950’s advertising was just plain creepy isn’t new to anyone, but this girl eagerly awaiting for a disembodied hand to finish spreading brains on a slice of cellophane bread, looks as if she can unhinge your jaw and swallow your soul. This proposed barbecue stand resembles an illustration from Ralph Steadman’s Animal Farm. This dish only looks edible if you are Andy Milonakis’ son… until you consider eating someone else’s barf instead. This kid is a leper while a young Michael Berryman eats a plate full of entrails.
