Is it just me, or is the Ricola Mystery Cougher contest a gross idea? Who wants to walk up to a stranger who is coughing and hand him or her a cough drop? Especially at the start of flu season, and in the midst of bird flu hysteria, why would anyone want to touch a coughing stranger? The contest is giving away a million dollars to people not squeamish about talking to hacking weirdos. I’ll pass.
Ricola Mystery Cougher Contest — Yecch! Blecch!
