The Centers for Disease Control applauded the nation’s salad bars Wednesday for being long ahead of the game on coronavirus.

The CDC issued a statement saying everyone across the country should try to be more like salad bars, protecting themselves from sneezes while also being fortified with iron, vitamins and occasionally chocolate pudding. Salad bars, the CDC said, are the perfect example of protected on the outside and healthy on the inside. The metaphor continued for a bit before the Centers reminded everyone to just wash their hands and wear a mask.

The Hamster can confirm that it is bad to sneeze on people or salads.
