What did Mama tell you about playing with dead things?

I recall a few years ago a news report that someone had gotten bubonic plague in the US southwest when they were playing catch with a dead prairie dog with their spouse. And I heard something in a radio news report (probably NPR) more recently that seemed to be saying that some kids got the avian flu playing with "a chicken head." ?!<br><br>It's a really strange world out there. Wash your hands when you come in the house, hear?<br><br> <p></p><i></i>
