Coinciding with Nashville-born pop star Miley Cyrus’ 21st birthday, it was announced at a press conference yesterday afternoon by the Tennessee Poison Center that Cyrus had teamed up with the organization to make a new warning sticker design.
The stickers are intended to be placed on containers which hold poisonous household materials, to warn children to not ingest them.
“The old Mr. Yuk design was just getting outdated,” said Tennessee Poison Center director Pat Baldacci. “Now kids these days, they pay attention to Miley. And, she’ll get her face plastered on thousands of containers all across the state, so it’s a win-win situation.”
Mr. Yuk did not respond to the Chattanooga Bystander‘s request for comments.
