Laugh or Cry: Male strippers quarantined for proximity to Ebola-stricken nurse

Performers were on flight from the Romanticon convention

Add another disease to the list of reasons why you don’t want to get too close to a stripper: Ebola.

Two male strippers who were sitting close to Ebola-stricken nurse Amber Vinson on her flight from Cleveland, Ohio to Dallas, Texas are now in quarantine.

The two men, Axl Goode and Taylor Cole, have placed themselves in voluntary quarantines on advice from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention after learning that they were sitting less than 3 feet away from the Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital Dallas nurse.

The two will have to remain in their homes for 21 days and stay at least 3 feet away from anyone who they live with.

Goode and Cole, both authors and models for erotic novel series, were in Ohio for the Romanticon convention.

Vinson is currently in stable condition at Emory Hospital in Atlanta, Georgia.
