The Ferrari virus

Someone suggested the Ferrari fever was more serious than your average cold but rather a virus for which there is no known antidote. They were right, there is no antidote but there is a treatment regimen.

Rx = Take one Ferrari with 8 gallons of Gasoline, Drive it in the morning, repeat as necessary throughout the day until symptoms subside. Rapid and opposing lateral G force may improve medications response. Acute cases may require more than one Ferrari.

Warnings - Do not take with Alcohol, Driving heavy machinery after use can cause relapses. May cause difficulty in sleeping.

I developed early signs of the virus circa 1975/76 at about the age of 8 when I was introduced to the 308GTS and 512BB. Although, infected I never developed the full blown virus until I received an injection of cash in 2006 and came down with the 328 strain of said virus. I dare say further injections of cash will be required on a regular basis to keep the virus

Luckily, the medication is a naturally occuring substance found in the Human body, Adrenaline. Overdosing will only cause difficulty in sleeping and an uncontrollable urge to speak in exaggerated and high pitched tones similar to those found near a lottery claim center. While the southern man has developed a standardized refrain (YeeHaa) the more northern male can only mumble incoherantly in a failing attempt to maintain composure. Please don't piss yourself in my car.

I myself have contracted the 348 Strain. While I haven't pissed myself yet, I've been real close. I still have trouble with the vocalizations experienced when applying the Rx. I imagine it is similar to tourettes syndrome.

Well I had the fever and realized at bit too late that I actually contracted a virus! I have hot flashes and light-headedness and see visions of 328s and 550 Maranellos. i often have panic attacks whereby i feel as if i'm flying in a jet but hear the sound of an F1 car ringing in my ears.

I don't know what to do....
