Couch is making you sick

You heard it here first...

Quote:
CLEVELAND -- Some northeast Ohio homes may have a new leather couch that is making people sick.

Consumer Reports magazine is reporting about a skin rash in Great Britain inked to leather couches from China.

Investigators think a dye or preservative in the leather is causing a reaction.
No official complaints yet in the U.S., but Consumer Reports said many leather couches now come from China.

How do you ink a skin rash to leather?

You shouldn't have left the copyright clause on that, Hill. Just saying.

And where does one return Couch for a refund since jumping on or over him is now out? And God only knows what kind of environmental damage burning him may cause.

We're going to have to end up paying for a Superfund Couch cleanup aren't we? With the moon suits, and the respirators, and the black helicopters, and then there's the memory wipes....

They can return all unwanted couches to me. I've perfected taking care of unwanted couches. It involves a 5th of Vodka (I call it Go Juice), a couple drums of gasoline and one matchbook.
