Sorry, it's my condiShAWn

Breaking The Ice

  Tissues, labeled The Sickness, is a male contestant in Inanimate Insanity II. He is placed on Team Bright Lights. He is voiced by Taylor Grodin.


Tissues is a very debilitated and ill character. Since his debut on the show, he has become infected with a contagious disease known as the "condiShAWn".

Due to this condition, Tissues cannot control his sneezing, and will constantly sneeze at other characters, much to their disgust. Because of his uncontrollable sneezing, Tissues does not make friends easily with other characters and seems to only repel them instead. Additionally, Tissues' sneezes are powerful enough to launch him several feet into the air. Tissues may also occasionally enter a sneezing spasm, where he will sneeze endlessly multiple times in a matter of seconds.

Tissues' condiShAWn additionally causes him to be constantly tired, sluggish, underactive, and lethargic, as in "Breaking The Ice", he was too tired to partake in the dodgeball competition. The condishawn also causes Tissues to slur his words and adopt a lisp.

Despite sickness being his main attribute, Tissues appears to be considerate and kind, but especially timid, veracious, apprehensive, and slightly apathetic. Tissues also fails to understand jokes and slang, as he acknowledges how strange Trophy's middle name, "Horseplay", was despite it merely being an idiom.


Tissues is a rectangular turquoise box with a tuft of tissue paper, sprouting from a slit at the top. His face appears on one of the longer sides. Tissues' arms are on either of the short sides, and his legs appear at the bottom. Occasionally, Tissues may leak mucus from an invisible nose above his mouth.

Official Site Bio

Something is terribly wrong with Tissues. Right from the start, Tissues has been severely ill with his condiShAWn, causing him to rapidly sneeze uncontrollably. This has lead him to be sadly neglected from the rest of the cast

Ever had a sick day? Welcome to Tissues’ entire life! Despite that Tissues wants to participate in challenges, he is halted at every turn by his infamous and self-described “condiShAWn.” While it may only render him fatigued, don’t underestimate how dangerous and life-threatening his contagion can be! Even with his limitations, Tissues always makes an effort to be social and put himself out there. Unfortunately, no matter how apologetic he is about his unhealthy state, it’s best to approach him with great caution.​
