Nuke the Punchline - It's Not the Virus' Fault!

Harvey over at IMAO posts a new straight line five days a week. He's kinda awesome like that. I think he deserves something for his efforts, don't you? If you love his straight line as much as I do, let him know in the comments.

Cookies to Harvey!!
The CDC’s new slogan: “Think Ebola“. Blah. What’s a better catchphrase for the war on Ebola?

Let's ask the Bluth's, should we?
#5 walruskkkch:   …Just die.

#4 Dohtimes: ...Obama: From now on let’s all live fast, die young and leave a good looking corpsman.

#3 Les:. . . . Simply Intransmissible.

#2 Oppo: “EbYOLO!”

And my favorite straight line of the day was from 4of7: 

The CDC’s new slogan: “Think Ebola“. Blah. What’s a better catchphrase for the war on Ebola?

Ebola doesn't kill people.
People with Ebola kill people.

 Cookies to 4of7!

and I also loved Oppo's catchy tune:

♫“She walked up to me, pro-immigration, pro-choice;
I asked her her name and in a dark brown voice she said ‘Ebola’
E – B – O – L – A, Ebola
. . . . .

“Well I’m not dumb but I can’t understand
Why she walked like a woman but upchucked like a man . . “

Dark Brown Crooner Cookies to Oppo!
I've missed you guys!


  1. Way to go 4of7, and there were a lot of great ones that didn't get into the top five.

    1. I agree wholeheartedly. So hard to narrow it down!

  2. I am terribly disappointed in these results. I really feel that #46 won the contest hands down! The artful co-opting of FLOTUS's "let's Move" slogan is priceless.

    1. You're sweet :) Cookies to Burt for making me smile on this cloudy, wet, under-the-weather sort of day.

  3. Yay! I got cookies! There were a lot of good lines on this subject, as Dohtimes confirmed. It was the genius of the other punch lines that inspired me. Usually when I check those Straight Line posts, the only funny lines I can think of were already submitted before I got there, or are so much funnier than what I was thinking of that I don't even bother to submit a comment. But now we will all have to try harder because it's All About The Cookies! (Welcome back, Anonymiss!)
