Do you lick your envelope?

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. It was warm and moist...

This is a true story reported on CNN

Hey, I used to work in an envelope 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 NEVER to 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

talking about licking,...errm...ok i think its best i discontinue from having my thought known, at least for this entry....hehehehhehhe...

normally in this type of email, the original sender will always claim they got the news from reliable sources but if you're an avid mythbuster fan, you can use your discretion and judge whether its genuine or otherwise. and i'm quite a fan of the mythbuster show. just my 2 sen, cikgu.

This is interesting!
I have been licking on envelops and stamps all my life.
Reading this...makes me promise not to lick stamps and envelops anymore.
Who could have imagine a stamp with Samy Vellu face on it..is a nut....trying to make a joke....but what an idiotic joke.it is.
And that gatal man..who wants to be PM ...declaring Monday is always a holiday....if he becomes one...is another nut.
Why do you have so many nuts in your blog...kata tak nak?

This is a true story, one day a friend came to see me and while we were talking, i took an envelope and give it a good jilat. The friend told me, ha! frankie, you ni mesti dari sekolah kebangsaan! And I was thinking, wtf has it got to do to the fact I am indeed studied in sekolah kebangsaan.

Apparently those from SJK has long been taught never to lick the envelope, is it true? I don't know, hey, I studied in sekolah kebangsaan!

Dear all,
It seems that blogger cheng has done a search and it turns out to be false, its just an urban legend and I would like to agree coz I am guilty of the act. I don't like the idea of harbouring cockroaches in my anything.

haha...i knew it, i knew it! thanks, cheng.

Oi, frankie, that's another urban legend. Ppl from SJK do lick. They lick everything including envelopes and stamps. Once I was a stamp-licker too (back when there was no internet and sms), until this particular incident. I was at a counter of a bank when this old chap stepped up the next window with a stack of notes. A cashier was just returning to his counter to attend to this man. I was sure he was just back from the toilet. Anyway, he grabbed the stack of cash and started counting. You know some people have a habit of licking their index finger when counting money or flipping pages of a book. This cashier did just that, not once, but a few times. I noticed some residue of what I thought might be... faeces... on that particular finger. The thought of it sent myself storming to the door to throw up. I think toilet paper knows this story, because he was there too. I have not licked on anything non food since that incident, not even my fingers.
