Sorry we had to quarantine you. Hope you enjoyed your stay in our beautiful country

After two days in quarantine, 42 female Japanese students are free to go. Evidently, the doctor who determined one of them might have measles missed the fact that it was just a common cold. Better safe than sorry, though.

Hope you get a chance to visit our city under better circumstances next time, ladies. Unfortunately, these types of incidents tend to get a bit overblown in the media. I suspect a lot of Japanese have been forewarned to steer clear of our lovely city for fear of deadly germs.

In the meantime, our readers can have a gander at the amusing little public service announcement above, about measles, courtesy of either a measles-obsessed twelve-year old or an adult with poor drawing skills but a lethal sense of comic timing.

    Fear not. The Asian tourists in Vancouver shall not be diminished by a mere quarantine. If it were so, I am sure many would have staged fake quarantines by now.

    What do you have against Asian tourists, exactly?
