Envelopes and Stamps
A woman was working in a post Office in California .
One day she licked the envelopes and postage stamps instead of using a sponge.
That very day the lady found a cut on her tongue. A week later, she noticed an abnormal swelling of her tongue.
She went to the doctor, and they found nothing wrong..
Her tongue was not sore or anything... A couple
of days later, her tongue started to swell more, and it began
to get really sore, so sore, that she could not eat. She
went back to the hospital, and demanded something be done.
The doctor took an x-ray of her tongue and noticed a
lump... He prepared her for minor surgery. When
The doctor cut her tongue open, a live cockroach crawled out!!!!
There were cockroach eggs on the seal of the
Envelope. The egg was able to hatch inside of
her tongue, because of her saliva, which was warm and moist.....
This is a truestory reported on CNN!

factory. You wouldn't believe the....things that float around in
those gum applicator trays. I haven't licked
an envelope for years!'
I used to work for a print shop(32 years ago), and we
were told NEVERto lick the envelopes. I never understood
why until I had to go into storage and pull out 2500
envelopes that were already printed and saw several squads
of cockroaches roaming around inside a couple of
boxes with eggs everywhere. They eat the glue
on the envelopes..
PLEASE PASS THIS ON TO YOUR FRIENDS!
After reading this you will never lick
Another envelope or stamp again.
