I Was Doing It Right All Along

When I was a kid, I used to sneeze and use my shirtsleeve to wipe it off. My teachers and classmates were usually horrified by this practice, but now I learn, to my surprise, that I was right all along. Well, sort of.

My pharmacy was displaying this extremely weird large poster, which is available from www.coughsafe.com:

At the same website, you can even watch a movie that teaches you how to cough and sneeze properly. Four stars!

That is some poster. Yes, I agree. Extremely weird! A corresponding movie? Well. Hmmm. I don't know what to say, except... thanks for giving me my laugh for the day! :)

At my place of work, they were giving out flu shots last fall, and they showed that video to amuse us while we waited the obligatory 15 minutes post-injection. (They also gave us a little bottle of hand-sanitizer as a delightful parting gift.)

I hope the ORL's idea of over the top silliness increases the memorability of the concept. Next: how to encourage people to wash their hands after using the toilet...
