In the past 15 years there have been 2 cases of bubonic plague in the US, so the chances of the plague uprising again are somewhere between nill and nada. Therefore, herpes still sucks. Would you really trust STD information from a doctor named Virgin???

Don`t forget sties. Not sure on the spelling there. Those are those annoying white spots that show up on your eye lids, next to the lashes, after your boyfriend jizzed on your face. Those are also Symplex 1 herpes. WHAT FUN!

Fun fact about Herpes:

Type one (cold sore) and type two (genital warts) are not Mutually Exclusive. Meaning, you can get type one in your mouth and on your genitals, as well as get type two on your genitals, as well as in your mouth.

Fun fact!

Hmm, my mom and I were just talking about this yesterday (weird, I know). But she told me that coldsores are herpes, which I hadn`t known before. I did always kind of wonder why I never got them and some of my friends did. But it`s odd because my mom claims to have had a coldsore once, when she was in her 20`s, and then -never- again. Is that even possible?

I was going to make a bad sexual joke about giving her herpes, then I noticed she was underage.

And now I gotta take a shower.
