    A llama at the county fair spit on me last week and now I have a cold. Yes, the damn llama gave me a cold. Have you ever had an encounter with a wild animal? Did you sustain injuries worse than a cold? (It was great to see Tracy Morgan and Brian Fellow on SNL last night).

    A llama at a county fair is a "wild animal"?

    I've had close encounters with sea lions and dolphins here in California, a moose in Canada, grizzly bears in Alaska and an elephant in the Malaysian jungle. Thankfully no injuries, just a load of crap in my underwear.

    Since when are llamas "wild animals?"

    It's very unlikely that you caught a virus from a llama. Viruses are much more species-specific than that. More likely from one of the snot-nosed kids running around the fair. On the other hand, llamas are sort of camels, and MERS is thought to be a cross-over from camels. Do let us know if you die...

    BTW, when I eat lunch on the deck and the damned peacocks are fighting over handouts, they start spitting, just like the llamas do when there aren't enough snacks to go around. At least llamas don't peck your toes.

    Yes, it was disease carrying and spitting. That makes it a wild animal.

    You get MERS from camels? I thought you got MERS from humping.

    It was great seeing Tracy Morgan back at it again.



    Though you are likelier to have gotten a cold from another fair attendee than the llama at the fair. Wash your hands and stay hydrated.
