The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) plays many roles in the nation's health. One of those roles, as outlined by the CDC itself, is "promoting healthy and safe behaviors, communities, and environment." On Friday, the CDC definitely communicated with the populace, and people were justifiably grossed out.
The Center posted a poppy seed muffin with five ticks hidden in it. Hopefully, it's just Photoshopped because this tick-strewn poppyseed muffin is a terrifying thing to behold. It's hard to know why you'd have to tell the difference between a poppy seed and a tick. Presumably, you wouldn't want either just hanging out on your body uninvited. Yet, there it is.
