Get it? Because he has tuberculosis! Ha! His story is sad though, and it makes us want to give him a big hug. But then we remember he's quarantined with tuberculosis and we would most likely die from that hug.

We got a sad e-mail from Christiaan Van Vuuren, who has been locked away in a single room to wait out his TB for over eight weeks, most likely from traveling in South America and South Africa. Damn. Stop hanging out with spider monkeys, Christiaan!

To stave off the crazies, he decided to make a (not bad!) rap video about his illness. It may start off a little slow, but towards the end it does pick up a bit. And the production value and editing are better than expected. It reminds me of that time I wrote a song about bronchitis when I had bronchitis. His is way better than that.

Christiaan is slated to be quarantined for another four weeks, so one man's consuming ennui may benefit us with a few more videos. Get better, Christiaan!
