> Vyrus
Pregnant women, the elderly, and children under 10 should avoid prolonged e

s contains a liquid core, which, if exposed due to rupture, should not be t
ouched, inhaled, or looked at.  Do not use Vyrus on concrete.  Discontinue 
use of Vyrus if any of the following occurs; itching, vertigo, dizziness, t
ingling in extremities, loss of balance or coordination, slurred speech, te
mporary blindness, profuse sweating, heart palpitations.  If Vyrus begins t
o smoke, get away immediately. Seek shelter and cover head.  Vyrus may stic
k to certain types of skin.  When not in use, Vyrus should be returned to i
ts special container and kept under refrigeration. Failure to do so relieve
s the makers of Vyrus, the Thotcon organization, and its parent company, DC
949, of any and all exotic liability.  Ingredients of Vyrus include an unkn
own glowing substance which fell to Earth, presumably from outer space.  Vy
rus has been shipped to our troops in Saudi Arabia and is also being droppe
d by our warplanes on Iraq.  Do not taunt Vyrus.  Vyrus comes with a lifeti
me guarantee.
