Move over covid. Ok, who was eating the chipmunks and had gotten sick? Well, that just takes the cake. Chipmunks, the cutest of all the woodland creatures, are plague carriers. Pretty sure nobody had that on their Bingo Card. This is the best story NBC News can post - over and over? Pathetic. to make enemies surrender, Mongol soldiers used to throw caracasses of dead animals infected with plague, inside city walls! Mongols got plague from India and took it to Europe. It spread and killed 25% of Europe’s population!
Whats a chipmunk? 😱😱😱😱😱😱 You may now check “rodents with plague” off your 2121 Bingo card. Will it ever end
Column: The Olympics shouldn't test for cannabis — much less ban athletes who test positiveIf Sha'Carri Richardson had gotten drunk instead of ingesting weed, she’d probably have competed in the women’s 100-meter final. opinion this is terrible news opinion I mean, if she can smoke pot and still win a medal she should like, win another medal for that opinion Driving while intoxicated gets one the same charges as driving while stoned. Should running be different? It is still PI. And psychomimetic. It produces symptoms of schizophrenia asociality alogia, delusions and hallucinations. Like, wow man, look....a leaf..... far out.

Black plague!!!!!! BINGO! Finally filled my card!! Too sad 😞 Fuck Is that the new variant? So sad, wish the Forests were better cared for. To the East, congestion is also happening. Basically, the chipmunks are suffering environmental stress. It WILL take All USA CITIZENS to heal Mother Nature. NOT THE CHIPPYS

It happens every year somewhere in the US. A child died in Colorado from it a few days ago. Gross! Alvin and Theodore got the plague. Camus wrote about stuff like this. Rodents getting sick in Oran was the first sign. Nasty business. Time to swill corn liquor. 🙈 Oh good lord, 2021 is really giving 2020 a run for its money.
Don't worry your lovely government will try to cover this up some how too. Cause you know they all about that. It's NBC News if someone didn't say this happens all the time there. I would call this Mis-information! Cause Government told us so today! Sad to hear tho, this story!

JESUS CHRIST! Positive for the plague?! Trying to find a punk band here... the Tahoe Plaguemonks? Did they ever think about testing the rats that were roaming the streets freely in San Francisco due to the homeless problem and human feces on the streets? Is this like the current plague we're still in, the black plague, or a completely different one?
This happens every year. Bubonic plague is easily treated if caught quickly. 🤷♀️ Thank goodness for penicillin. MlarSergio 🤯 But we can't close the border due to Covid? AAAALLVIIINN!!! How long will it be before the “but muh rights” crowd is racing to Lake Tahoe bc they will not be denied bc of a hoax?
No way no Wtf Well ain’t that a kick in the head, chipmunks and the plague. When does the chipmunk plague denying start? You can’t stop me from camping with plagued chipmunks! If the chipmunks won’t wear a mask, neither will I! Thanks Biden! I’m not doing a bingo card this year. spillover I don't think people understand that rodents and fleas were one of the major causes of the bubonic plague. Although antibiotics can cure plague, your prognosis or outlook will not be the same before you endured plague.
Plague? Like plague, plague? As jonstewart likes to say 'The boobanz'
