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.

To the best of my knowledge,the idea behind the contest is where the mystery “RICOLA” representative is to come up to a random person while the REPRESENTATIVE is “fake” coughing and ask the person he came up TO…if THEY would have a “Ricola” cough drop.
Hey, how about having someone FAKE spitting in a public place and a REPRESENTATIVE from KLEENEX comes up and aks THEM if THEY have a tissue.
do you know where to enter the contest? thanks for the ricolla
