Ticks rank right up with snakes and mice on my fear factor scale. I wouldn't kiss one either.

Met my ex? Dead ringer.

"Not in the face! Not in the face!"

2 do 2 day
1. walk dog
2. pick off damn ticks
3. cure cancer.
Glad they're useful for something.

Oh Dave? If you ever get cancer, and tick spit will fix it, trust me, you'll french kiss every arachnid in Florida.

If I had cancer, I guarantee I would gargle live slime molds to get rid of it. Probably taste better than chemotherapy anyway.

Immobile Bloated Ticks WB...

In her modest lab in the institute, housed in a rundown building, a line of immobile bloated ticks could be seen lined up with straws under their heads.

and I thought I had had some crap jobs - how'd you like to be her research assistant?

The thing with cancer is the cure almost always seems worse than the disease. Blood sucking parasite spit is right up there with chemo.

My sister is going through that now and I'm sure if ticks worked, she'd used them.

repulsive little blood-sucking parasites

There you go about Congress again.
