"EEEWW! Mucous - the scourge of mankind. Empires have fallen at the foot of this pox!" -the Tick
Yes, I'm sick today. Probably dying. Has anyone in history ever suffered as much as I now suffer?! And no, I'm not being overly dramatic. Really. Okay, maybe a bit, but I really don't feel good! It's a bad day when you've filled every waste basket in the house with used tissues. Ick. And there's nothing like a bright, red nose to make sure that everyone around you knows that you're sick. And disgusting.
Oh, where does all this evil mucous come from?
