Mickey Mouse and Ebola: From the Sublime to the Ridiculous

What an odd juxtaposition. Whenever I see the graphic illustration of the Ebola virus, the first thing that pops into my mind is … Mickey Mouse. Talk about going from the sublime to the ridiculous, or in this case the hideous.



I always have to double check sublime! How can something “sub” be fine and uplifting?

  3. I got this… things are sub-lime because other things may be amazing in and of themselves, but they are all ‘sub’ the lime… without which there would be no Margarita time! Yes, I am talking nonsense, and yes, Ebola looks like Mickey. I’m going back to my padded cell now, and yo have a good weekend 😉
