"Fast Food Cook Says Food Prep Gloves Are Protecting Him From Germs"

Birmingham, Alabama - Cecile McDilbert, a 19 year old, part time cook at a local fast food restaurant, says he feels immune to food born pathogens while wearing cellophane food prepping gloves.

"I not only wear them while I'm touching all the food, but I also mop the floors, handle cash while pushing buttons on the register, and I even wipe down the restrooms."

McDilbert says he rarely gets sick and he attributes it to the gloves.

"It's like a germ barrier on my hands; allowing me to multi-task without the fear catching something."

At press time we learned that McDilbert's place of employment was under quarantine from what the local health inspector described as, "an aggressive outbreak of E. coli."

This is my first contribution to this forum. It is my latest Horatian Satire piece and I'm interested in hearing some feedback on all levels. I know these type articles are a dime a dozen on the internet, but I enjoy writing satire based on things I notice in society. I've seen this behavior occurring in commercial kitchens and sub shops all over place, but nobody seems to point it out. Thanks for reading!
