Taking the pulse

An advertisement of the Boston Public Health Commission, spotted on Huntington Avenue in Boston:

And for those of you without a pulse (and you know who you are), just don’t even bother getting a flu shot, okay?



  1. Well, yes, isn’t that the point? That everyone should get one? I don’t quite get your quibble. Are you seriously suggesting that the silly old Health Commission didn’t realize that flu shots are only applicable to those with pulses?

  2. @MelissaJane — There was no “quibble” in MRP’s post nor did she suggest that there was any problem with the sign, she was just snarking about it. She didn’t IN ANY WAY suggest that the Health Commission did anything WRONG.
