Arkansas will be short a few players today against Missouri due to the mumps...


Earlier this week, the University of Arkansas released a statement regarding a mumps outbreak on the school's campus...
quote:

"Consistent with a recommendation made by the Arkansas Department of Health for all University of Arkansas students and in conjunction with University efforts in response to diagnosed cases of mumps on campus, Razorback Athletics is providing its student-athletes, coaches and staff access to an additional dose of MMR vaccine. While student-athletes may or may not have been personally exposed to those individuals with confirmed cases, their daily interaction with others on campus, including other student-athletes, poses the possibility such exposure could adversely impact their health and well-being. Razorback Athletics remains committed to maintaining the health, safety and well-being of all of our student-athletes, coaches and staff members."

And who did the Tigers play last week in Baton Rouge? R-Kansas! What’s the incubation period for mumps? If any Aggies come down with the mumps, then the visitors locker room is infected and more hippies didn’t vaccinate their kids 15+ years ago.

Mayonnaise sandwich eating, boinking your sister hillbillies listen up. The MMR booster will not kill you & it's cheaper than a can of Grizzly snuff. Also beats the hell out of laying around in bed for two weeks looking like you're choking on Aggie wang.

But vaccines cause autism. Wrong. The anti vaccination crowd has caused this.

So...like half the reported US cases of mumps just occurred on Arky’s campus. How in the world did this program offend God so badly?

“Although contact with others seems to spread the disease, it is our estimation that a football game will not spread this to other areas of the southeastern US.”
