Why is This Kid Happy to Have Salmonella?


The headline reads “Peanut Recall: Many Thousands may be victims, doctors believe.” And here’s the picture. Um…that’s one happy salmonella victim isn’t it? I had to read the story to figure it out because on its face it looks like the kid is just super happy, but I guess you would be too if you spent a week in the hospital with a very serious case of salmonella poisoning...and lived. Oh, that's why he's happy.

I guess I just always think of the adult version where you just get awful stomach flu, not what it can do to young children. I think my fickle attitude is definitely starting to shed since K1 came along. Now, I think I’m even more pissed about the whole salmonella thing after reading this story.
