Aaagh! Aaagh! Plague!

A girl in Eastern Oregon has been diagnosed with Bubonic Plague (known historically as "The Black Death").

If you need me, I'll be hiding under my bed.

UPDATE: There isn't really any cause for concern. She got bit by a wild flea while hunting, and she's in Intensive Care undergoing treatment with antibiotics. They caught it in time and she'll probably be fine. Plague is a dreadful disease and she isn't going to have a fun time, but it isn't directly communicable.

But seeing this news report reminded me of the first FiresignTheater album.

"You've got... the Plague!"

There are advantages to not leaving your apartment...
