Cruella DeVille is toast. I mean, one of the first to go. She can't climb trees with that coat and those fingernails. She's not going to have some hired assassins and she won't have her car. So she's out.
Is it too much to ask Jenny McCarthy to read a simple, well-researched article and properly educate herself about how no legitimate scientific studies have linked vaccines to autism?

First, I will go ahead and say it, so you don't have to: #firstworldproblems. Okay, now that that's out there, here is the tale of two back-to-back 4-year-old Frozen-themed birthday parties that I attended last month with my daughter... and what I learned.
