I’ve been attacked by a Poke-spore

I’m a nice peaceful person. Just let me be. I don’t relish being attacked by anything; but then again if it’s Pokémon, it’s okay. I’m a super fan as you might already know. In my book, Pokémon can do no wrong in any of its incarnations, and there are many. Rumor has it there are 17 different seasons of the beloved game. Who can remember all the plots and wily machinations. I can spend hours watching TV or playing the video games. I’ve got skills and moves.

When a new game bursts on the scene, I’m right there – first in line (or should I say online). I’m at it so much that I risk being attacked by a spore that could put me to sleep. You heard right. These spores are scattered from mushrooms, so beware of their inherent magical power. It does not bring good things. Pokémon beings wear goggles to fend them off. I might not be so lucky. Even if I do sport glasses for safety, I could get toenail fungus. Sleep would be an improvement over that. (Mushrooms, fungus, get it?) Wouldn’t that be a new twist on an old game move! There would be no immunity and players would have to get treatment to prevent a dangerous infestation or worse yet, an epidemic. In fact, we could title the game “Epidemic” to fit in with the other wacko titles in the Pokémon arsenal.

What the heck is toe fungus? Who has it? It is nasty dark yellow goop under the nail bed. It just appears out of nowhere when you least expect it – one day, you’ll have Nice Feet and Healthy Nails and then the next, you’ll have gross yellow toenails. It can be contagious, so maybe it does come from Poke-spores. It lives under the nail, hiding in perfect bliss and never wants to leave. It resists your every move. The characters of Pokémon will have met their match if they become afflicted. If people can’t get rid of it, how can anything in the world of anime? I can give them some hints. Go online and load up on potent potions to treat toenail fungus that guarantee banishment of the dreaded fungus in no time flat. They don’t work on people, but on you – why not! Buy nail lacquer or try laser sessions. And then there are pills. Guys, you have options. Do not despair. However, this is a serious ailment requiring a multi-pronged remedy and some outlay of bucks. Pokémon fans, take heed and take action.

If I get toe fungus I am going to blame those Poke-spores sent to get me by some evil doer. I don’t even care if they know I’m an avid admirer and want to share some funky fun. A prank can become a problem as in this case. I can think of better things I want from Japanese anime. It’s a wonderful world of adventure and excitement, and toe fungus is not on the top of my list of must haves. It is one thing I do want to avoid all my life, but not at the expense of Pokemon!
