Do not lick the envelope!

A woman was working in a post office in California.

One day she licked the envelopes and postage stamps instead of using a
sponge. That very day the lady cut her tongue on the envelope.

A week later, she noticed an abnormal swelling of her tongue. She went to
the doctor, and they found nothing wrong.

Her tongue was not sore or anything. A couple of days later, her tongue
started to swell more, and it began to get really sore, so sore, that
she could not eat. She went back to the hospital, and demanded something be done. The doctor
took an x-ray of her tongue and noticed a lump.

He prepared her for minor surgery. When the doctor cut her tongue open, a
live cockroach crawled out!!!!

There were roach eggs on the seal of the envelope. The egg was able to
hatch inside of her tongue, because of her saliva. It was warm and
moist...

This is a true story reported on CNN

Hey, I used to work in an envelope factory. You wouldn't believe
the....things that float around in those gum applicator trays. I haven't
licked an envelope for years!" I used to work for a print shop (32 years
ago) and we were told NEVER to lick the envelopes. I never understood why
until I had to go into storage and pull out 2500 envelopes that were
already printed for a customer who was doing a mailing and saw
several squads of roaches roaming around inside a couple of boxes with
eggs everywhere. They eat the glue on the envelopes.

PLEASE PASS THIS ON, TO YOUR FRIENDS. After reading this you will never
lick another envelope or stamp again.

Yeah, that one was going around on another board a while back, so I knew right away. :p It's to the point where I don't believe ANYTHING until I know it's been checked out and proven.
