Contagion, and a sense of humor

KANDAHAR, Afghanistan — From the bathroom, the sound of retching.
From the hallway, the sound of laughter and men’s voices echoing.
“Hey Trantham, how you doin’ in there?”
“Yeah, man. What color is it?”
A virus is moving through the men of this unit, a Security Force Assistance Team assigned to mentor members of the Afghan National Civil Order Police. The blitz bug puts them down for a day or two. It is short, violent, and — to the still-healthy — pretty funny.http://www.stripes.com/news/contagion-and-a-sense-of-humor-1.156269
