Neil Patrick Harris Made Out With 137 People And Never Got Sick

Neil_Patrick_Harris_hasty_puddingI ended up making out with 137 people. Which was not nearly as disturbing as the fact that I licked the stage, the floor of the stage, 137 times. That’s where most, if any, infection came from. I’ve never been on more handfuls of vitamins and trace minerals and pills. I think I did five rounds of antibiotics during the show? Just to make sure I was going to get through it. There were thousands of people who wanted to see the show, and I’m only there for a finite period of time, so I didn’t want to have to fall out, because that meant they would have to reschedule or not be able to see it, at least not with me.”
