Partying At The Playboy Mansion May Give You A Disease

Looks like hanging out at Hugh Hefner’s house has some consequences.

As of today, 170 people have been stricken with legionellosis (a less-serious form of Legionnaires’ disease) after attending a fundraiser at the Playboy Mansion on Feb. 3.

Apparently, legionellosis thrives and spreads in environments of warm water — which means that the mansion’s famous grotto is the perfect breeding ground for the germ (and we can only imagine what else).

So, guys — if you were splashing around with Bunnies at this party, better come clean to your wives now. They’ll know exactly what’s up when the fever and chills set in.
