The family panics and takes Archie to the doctor where he has to wait in the waiting room and then endures a painful shot. When he gets home, he gets the idea for a lawsuit only to have Edith break the news that he didn't eat Poconos but a brand with a similar label. Archie doesn't have boccelism, but does acquire Gloria's flu. Written by Jerry Roberts <>

Archie may have food poisoning
6 December 2017 | by Jimmy_the_Gent4See all my reviews

Archie eats some canned mushrooms which may have been recalled due to food poisoning.

A funny episode which begins with Gloria with the flu and Archie eats the mushrooms before hearing the report. Funny scenes when the whole family rushes around trying to find the empty cans of mushrooms,but the garbage-men have already picked up the trash.Edith yells out "Do you want an enema?" for the biggest laugh. Archie wants to sue but finds out he did not eat the poisoned mushrooms.
