Airborne Transmission

Mrs. Cynical was recently at a big-city, multi-day conference. These are folks you would probably assume are pretty smart, especially about science-related stuff.

When Mrs. Cynical and some others decided to sit outside during a break, another attendee warned them that the mosquitoes were pretty bad, saying, "Make sure you light the salmonella candle!"

Apparently, he never did figure out why the entire group was laughing at him
