Sick bull, in his fuzzy blue pyjamas, sick bull, better bring him chicken noodle soup...

Hi hi hiCHOO! (sniff) It's me, folks, the under-the-weather Bully the High-Temperature Little Stuffed bull, apologizing to you goo healthy folks that I don't have a proper post tonight, I mean, what I'm feel as under the flu bug as Mister Peter Parker did...

What's more, when you have a cold, try not to hang around people who are showing off their giant snowball collection:

...especially when what the doctor (Strange, Richards, or Connors) receommends is heading straight home to bed and take some speed! Wait, no, I think I've misread that panel:

ASM #121

Because who knows: after you down your two or three bottles of Narcoleptussin-R, the sure cure for cough and colds, you may be called on to run some errands. Especially when you might be called upon to save Miss Gwen Stacy when she apparently has slipped on some slick ice while climbing around on the Brooklyn Bridge. That'll teach you to wear those big spiked Jimmy Choos, Gwendy!

Hopefully your mind will be clear and sharp enough to do this:

Here's a helpful hint: if you didn't hear a "snap," you're in like flynn.

What If? #24

Now, make sure she takes you home and tucks you into bed, and brings you some of Aunt Stacy's Chicken Noodle Soup. By which I mean, plenty of hugs and kisses. Because half the fun of having a cold is giving it to someone you love right? cough, cough
