Mine began in the middle of last week with a sore throat. It has since snaked through my nose, ears and eyeballs until it finally coiled fatly in my skull, making it feel as if it’s about to explode.

Thus I have a sick day off to lie in bed and drink things like NyQuil and echinacea tea, hoping to return to work on Tuesday.

Enjoy the top 10 list in the interim.

    I’ve polled as never getting sick.  It’s another advantage of communism; colds and viruses are sent to the gulags.
