Horrible, a tick bite turns a meat-eater into a veggie: the Lone Star tick. But maybe Cow Poke has some tips to avoid such a fate.

Don't tell PETA or they might start infecting people on purpose.

There are ways to desensitize to some allergies. I would sure look for such if I were a victim of that horror.

It takes quite a few to make a meal, but stir frying is best. And they pair nicely with Tabasco.

What does not pair well with Tabasco? Not counting desserts.

Or.... think about how much surplus bacon and steak will become available to us after we infect the rest of the population! :idea:

Laws of supply and demand would cause piggeries and such to be abandoned as useless methinks.

Surplus? :no:

What he means is that there would be almost enough.

I meant surplus as in more for us, less for those tick-stricken. The output and consumption would remain at present levels of course, unless we can find a way to increase production.
