Bob's Burgers Gets It Wrong!

Bob's Burgers poison ivy scene

Those wacky folks who do the Fox cartoon series Bob's Burgers ran their cartoon kids through a field of poison ivy in a recent episode. 

BUT, what they showed is totally wrong: in the episode one kid carries the others through a field of poison ivy, and the rash shows up right away, on his bare legs. WRONG!

Poison ivy (and poison oak, and poison sumac) rashes never show up right away; almost always the NEXT DAY! 

The episode in question is called Stand By Gene, and you can watch it on the web, here. It's funny if you are... young. Enjoy it, but keep in mind that you can walk all day through the worst poison ivy and never know it until the next day, when your life will turn ugly.
