I'm not sure it's ''trolling.'' But I did comment.

You wouldn't want me to blow cigar smoke in your child's face....and I don't want your MEASLEY child anywhere near mine. What's the difference, really?

Well, they don't seem to be following any of "The 15 Rules of Internet Disruption," which is the Bible for trolls. Actually, I think "being funny" breaks all fifteen at once.

It's pretty funny, but a serious topic.

Some doctors are not allowing childen with measles into their offices, and I don't blame them. If parents don't want to vaccinate their children, they have no right to infect others.

I think humor is the only antidote to these anti-vaxxers

I had a read of what the woman wrote - a preventable disease which measles was eliminated from the Western Hemisphere in 2002 and she thinks it is marvelous. It is a highly contagious virus, spread by contact with an infected person through coughing and sneezing. When one person has measles, 90 percent of the people they come into close contact with will become infected, if they are not already immune. I wonder if she would think the same about Ebola or Smallpox. But then I do wonder what the estate of Roald Dahl would think given one of his children died of measles - and it does look like she stole the title from George's wonderful medicine.

This article's comments were so hilariously funny, if this wasn't such a serious topic! Life threatening, to say the least!
One commenter said that vaccines were the reason the cancer rates in children and adults has spiked in the last I don't know how many years. Like getting vaccinated makes you more likely to get cancer!
I hate to tell her, but my Granma had breast cancer LONG before vaccinations were the norm. She was born in 1903 and had it before she was 30! So there goes that argument!
Association does not equal causation, as one commenter so succinctly put it!

Thanks, Freya, for sharing this. I had measles as a child, and it was not pretty, no vaccine then. We have entirely too much ignorance in this country today. I shared it on Facebook, too.
