'The Cold Crusading for Democracy; The Führer of the Streptococcracy. ' - This is a sort of fun, but dry, witty piece. I like the humour. The lines above had me. it's definitely a " unique" write, so I say 10. Xx NDS
interesting - My malady is a common cold.
And need he say more. Right to the point...
sounds like that was the cold to end all colds
Quite the most enjoyable contemplation of illness I have ended in for some time. Certainly uncommon! :)
Very funny piece on the common cold! !
humor while keeping pace and flow, amazing
Only a talent like Ogden Nash could make a cold funny. This guy is my all time favourite.
