I hate it when people forward bogus warnings, but this one is real and it's important. So please send this warning to everyone on your e-mail list: If somebody comes to your front door saying they are conducting a survey on deer ticks and asks you to take your clothes off and dance around with your arms up, DO NOT DO IT! IT IS A SCAM! They only want to see you naked.

I wish I'd gotten this yesterday. I feel so stupid now.

Are you SURE it was a scam?????

I mean.....seriously, look in the mirror......would someone really want to see that naked?

Not a scam. There's been a rash of deer ticks infected with horrible diseases imported from China.

They're hitching rides in shipments of defective ammo.

The dancing part is to see if you're suffering neurological damage from tick infestation. Quickest way to check, really.

I figured it might be a hoax.....too dang cold up here for ticks. Can't trust anyone, some little girls in uniforms came by the other day trying to sell me thin mints and cookies...I saw right thru their sneaky scam.

So how many boxes of their tick repellant did you buy?

Ok, The image of Art dancing naked will require some serious eye bleach. Rye here I come.

The mentally conjured vision of that dance made me choke on my last sip of Old Pallbearer.

Thanks for the heads-up Art...

...but, hey, if that 'someone' at the door looks like Jennifer Lopez...I'm droppin my linen and I'll be :D.

dangit ART, that guy was so friendly too.

Art, I guess your local representative is only providing partial service. The Austin American-Statesman just reported the "Deer Tick guys" are offering Hernia checks and Prostate Exams as part of their full service to ensure tick larva were not hiding in 'strategic places'.

dangit ART, that guy was so friendly too.

You had a GUY come to your door? :D

well yeah, I asked if they had any women that could administer the test but something about privacy and sexual harrassment suits so men had to test men and women had to test women...
