Flu Design Graphics Are Fabulous
The flu itself, however -- not so much.
I've written about him here before, but never really went into much detail about Nathan Scott Phillips, my kitten. He's actually more cat than kitten now, thankfully, but still manages to get into trouble on a regular basis. In his little cat calendar, he writes in "cause chaos" in pen, and sets at least an hour a day aside just for that purpose. This allotted time has been cut down from eight straight hours of havoc, so he's definitely maturing.
When I spotted our icky-yet-kinda-cute flu design graphics offered at ADVANCE Custom Promotions, the one pictured in this post sorta reminded me of the little white monster that I cohabitate with. I love lists, have a limited knowledge of the flu virus and therefore put together a list of the ways that my cat is like our cartoon flu in the flu flighter design.
- Kind of cute but dangerous. If our flu design graphics are an accurate depiction of what the flu virus looks like, you have to give the virus cuteness points. Similarly, Nathan Scott Phillips often appears to be pretty darn cute. Just don't turn your back, or he'll be slowly dismantling the couch from the inside out. Curtains and drapes everywhere quake in fear when he approaches.
- Comes around when you least expect it. Walking through the living room, a little white paw will strike out from under the sofa, followed by a hopping cat body. It scares the heck out of me. As a bonus, sometimes I'll be carrying something that I instantly drop. Likewise, the flu often appears when you least expect it or at the most inconvenient time.
- Makes me sneeze. I'm slightly allergic to cats. I have two, so obviously this is a minor inconvenience. The flu also makes me sneeze. The flu design graphics do not.
- Dislikes shots. I haven't asked the cartoon flu virus in our flu fighter design about this, but I'm guessing he's not too keen on vaccines. Nate also dislikes shots and firmly believes that they will eradicate him.
- Highly contagious. When I first brought the kitten home, he hid under the bookcase and then the couch for three days. I had to gingerly push bowls of canned food and a little dish of water under whatever apparatus to get him to eat. I was certain he would be a hiding cat, but things changed pretty quickly. Now, visitors are instantly approached by Nate, and he doesn't leave them alone, making him ...
- Tough to get rid of. Like the flu, once Nate's in bothering mode, he doesn't give up easily. My oldest cat knows this well, and my cries of "LEAVE SALLY ALONE" are met with blank stares. Products adorned with our flu design graphics will be something your potential clients will find hard to get rid of, as well.
- Wiggly. I'm not sure if the flu virus really wiggles when under the microscope, but I've always imagined it does. The cartoon flu in our flu fighter design certainly looks like a wiggler. Nate also wiggles, often.
- Long names/many names. Swine flu, novel H1N1, Novel 2009 H1N1 Influenza Virus, H1N1 and the multi-tasking "H1N1 Also Known as Swine Flu" used in newscasts. Nate, Nathan Scott Phillips, Weenie (because he looks like a hot dog), Bad Kitty, Hey-You-Stop-Swimming-in-Your-Water-Dish, LEAVE SALLY ALONE.
As you can see, the similarities are staggering. Nate, in his next life, will be a cartoon flu germ or a microscopic virus. Pick out your favorite from our flu and germ designs and slap those designs on hand sanitizers, T-shirts or whatever you please. At least cartoon flu designs can't yank down curtains, so spread our flu design graphics (and not the flu itself) around.
