Paranoid? Then iron your mail if you're that scared of getting Anthrax.

Sigh. The end of the age of ironing was prematurely proclaimed, it appears.

Or microwave the little bastards, I suppose. Make sure there's no staples in there. Of course lingering anthrax in your food might not be so fun. Lingering anthrax on the collar's not a nice picture, either.

The real question is: Should we bring our Anthrax to the dry cleaners?

Good stuff, snotty. :)

Oh, too bad. I was hoping the unreasoning panic over anthrax might force the mass-mailers out of business. Now they'll just hire somebody to iron stuff.

I was under the perception that antrhax spores were EXTREMELY hard to kill. In fact, the spores had to be heated to extreme temperatures... me thinks this is akin to hiding under a desk during a nuclear strike.
