Not So Cute

R.I.P., sickly little buddy

"Have you gotten your vaccinations this year?" 

"Nah. I never get sick." 

"Well, you know, it's not really about YOU, it's about the pocket monsters you might infect." 

"What do you mean?" 

"What might seem like a common cold can be deadly to your pocket monster. Think of Ash's Pikachu." 

"What happened?" 

"He died." 


"Yeah, sinus infections are really problematic for Pikachu because of that tiny little nose." 

"Wait, is 'Pikachu' the plural of 'Pikachu'?" 

"Yes, it's like moose." 

"I thought there was only one Pikachu." 

"Oh no, it's a species." 

"Then why is it capitalized like a proper name?" 

"Listen, we've gone really far afield here. Point is: get vaccinated or your mythological Japanese monster pet might die." 

"Fine. But what about autism?" 

"What have I said about trolling the Shirt.Woot community?"
