We've learned from a recent survey that 76% of our readers get their news exclusively from Cake Wrecks and the Fun Facts on the underside of Snapple lids. So today, in Part 12 of our medical news series, "Congrats! You're Contagious!," we'll be teaching you how to recognize an onset of Rectal Arthritic Bubonic Inner Ear Scurvy (aka "R.A.B.I.E.S.") in your furry friend.
Stage 1: Upon initial infection, your dog may show unusual signs of perkiness and energy.
Sparky may even rummage through your holiday scrunchie drawer and attempt to accessorize.
Stage 2: Several minutes after becoming infected, your dog may appear nervous or scared.
Hiding behind word-shaped shrubbery is common.
Stage VII: R.A.B.I.E.S. will cause Munchkin's eyes to water and turn a slightly pinkish hue:
Also known as the "Tammy Faye Baker Phase."
Stage 6: Foaming at the mouth:
After eating poo.
Stage 6: Lashing out with erratic behavior.
Also known as the "Your Kid's Gonna Need Therapy" phase.
Stage F: Dry, patchy skin.
Accompanied by KISS makeup and a wang beard.
Stage 9: Inexplicable weight gain.
And loss of limbs and neck.
So be sure to keep an eye out for any signs that your little Gnarls Barkley may be infected. After all, you don't want to experience the final
phase of the R.A.B.I.E.S. virus:
Total protonic reversal.
Yeah. That's bad.
