Cure For Diabetes Found!
At a press conference earlier today, the Diabetes Online Community (DOC) announced that a cure was found for diabetes.
"This is very exciting news," a spokesperson said, "as the cure is not just for one particular type of diabetes." The researchers report that a cure was found for all types: Type 1, Type 2, Gestational, illness/medication related, etc.
When asked for details about the cure, researchers stated that they happened upon it by accident.
"Previously we thought the cure might be found in the saliva of reptiles. It turns out we were very close. The cure is actually derived from the saliva of amphibians."
Lucky for our friend the frog, the animals must be alive, healthy, and happy for their saliva to provide the components for the miracle diabetes cure. Only one ounce of the serum (a combination of amphibian saliva, tree moss, and Diet Coke) is needed to cure any type of diabetes.
Patients who desire this cure need only contact the DOC. Each dose of cure will cost one dozen cupcakes, sprinkles optional.
