    That's why I never read the Medical Supplements in the Newspapers.

    A full house was known as Syphilis, Boo Boo and the clap.

    Thankfully did not get any of those.

    Always thought it was Simplex named after the original bicycle gear and said to be transmitted through the saddle, Guns introduced by Samuel Colt and through certain models of his colt 45. and the ever present crayfish found mainly in southern waters. They are still arguing about the source of Aids. However one should be well protected today by wearing a face mask. The crays only get dangerous if caught clinging to your eyebrows, in an emergency pull the facemask over the eyes. If driving pull over to the side of the road first. Cheers JS
