I’m Karen, and I have an allergy to peanuts, tree nuts and soy. I thought we could have a little fun with Halloween, by showing that we can still have fun with our allergies with costumes of the some of the most common allergens in Canada. There are also a few allergy jokes in there that I hope you find a little humorous. Enjoy!
As part of the admission procedure in the hospital where I work, I ask the patients if they are allergic to anything. If they are, I print it on an allergy band placed on the patients’ wrists. Once when I asked an elderly woman if she had any allergies, she said she couldn’t eat bananas. Imagine my surprise when several hours later a very irate son came out to the nurses’ station demanding, “Who’s responsible for labelling my mother ‘bananas’?
HAZELNUT (TREE NUTS)
BEES (INSECT BITES)
Humans and bees have something in common – hives!
A picture of a cat wearing a dress was seen hanging in an allergy clinic with the following caption: We got rid of the kids, the cat was allergic.
