Old Curse

The Flea

 

Just recently, we heard that Ahmadinejad  has sent an old Iranian curse to the leaders of the United States.   The curse  is reserved for the worst of enemies.  

I wonder if he knows this one:   May the fleas of a thousand camels infest your armpits!  

A little history and science:   There are nearly 2,400 species and subspecies of fleas. The Oriental rat flea and the European rat flea can transmit diseases from infected rats to humans. These diseases include bubonic plague—the “Black Death” of the 14th century—and murine typhus, which was common in the southeastern United States during 1944-50.  

Should we say more, Mr. Ahmadinejad?      Ah, peace, peace and there is no peace.
