Does licking the comic seductively reduce its grading?

I would think it would ruin the CGC rating because of cooties.

I mean, normally yeah. But in those ridiculous plastic casings, it's would be a question of the value of an added smear of dna (although those are bad photoshop jobs, right?).

The whole thing reminds me now of a sort of prank I pulled with a copy of Fifty Shades of Grey on one of the regulars in the shop who tries to never lose his cool a couple weeks ago. It had a sort of suspect smear of something on the front cover and I convincingly pretended to wipe the tip of my index finger through it and then taste it on my tongue. "Oh yeah, that's lube all right!"

He screamed like a little girl and just about jumped out of his skin. :lol:
