This is a very serious tick scam warning...

I hate it when people give out bogus warnings, and I have even done it
myself a couple times unintentionally...but this one is real, and it's important. So please tell everyone you know.

If someone comes to your front door saying they are checking for ticks due to the warm weather and asks you to take your clothes off and dance around with your arms up, DO NOT DO IT!! THIS IS A SCAM!! They only want to see you naked.


I wish I'd gotten this yesterday. I feel so stupid.

And here I was hoping that there was a new run of The Tick cartoons coming out.

Well, damn.

That's how I always answer the door.

Thanks for the heads up. Shouldn't be a problem for me though, considering I am a nudist and everything. I sit now in my leather office chair, and how nice does it feel against my cool tushy.

You two sound like you have experience. I was just kidding, but if nudity is your thing, whatever floats your boat I guess.

The Nervous Tick

His eyes bulged, terrified, from the pressure I placed on his spine. He gulped, I know he did -- although I couldn't be sure -- and then took a deep breath as I squeezed tightly. A droplet of blood trickled from the corner of his mouth.

He twitched again. I felt him.

The pain was obvious, as it was with the swelling on my neck, but I paid no attention. Night after night I felt it leaving in vein and retreat to its hiding spot behind my neck where I was unable to reach. My tortured arm did not allow me to reach much further than my right cheek, so I was not aware of the small tear of flesh in my neck until one morning when I prepared to shave.

I noticed for the first time the pimple, so I had thought at the moment, on my neck. I became alarmed. What was the cause of this affliction? I had not eaten poorly or indulged in exotic foods or drink, so why had this small mound of flesh begun to protrude from my neck. I am sure it was my diet, yet I remained faithful to the fruit of drink and meats that I've become so fond of while on holiday at the institution.

The morning shadow crept upon my room again, as each day since my return from the hospital, but this day I discovered the faintest hint of another sharing my bed. I had not felt the suckling before or during my slumber. I had taken the drink, quite frequently, and so my sleep was not disturbed by the sounds of a house that had shared a hundred years of pestilence. I threw back the covers and jumped from my bed, startled -- I felt the nervous tick of despair creep into my spine -- and stood facing the blood stained pillow.
