Sorry, but if anyone in the world knows best that pubic lice infestations are decreasing, it's the staff of the Sydney Sexual Health Clinic. Place used to be crawling with the little farkers.

Love the fact that 150+ people "like" the facebook pubic lice page.
 
2013-01-18 11:17:34 AM  
Crabs are an endangered species then? Someone alert PETA! They care about dying species whether they are cute, ugly, or parasitic, right?
 
2013-01-18 11:23:16 AM  
Human public lice are a distinct species from human head lice. Neither can live in the other's preferred
environment.

Human public lice are genetically descended from the lice that parasitize gorillas.

THAT is NASTY, baby.

I read the original article, I can't say I saw any "science" in it to begin with. I kinda thought people were making a funny.

Huh, I hadn't heard of this before.

Of course that is because I don't have farking PUBIC LICE!

Didn't believe it when I read it for the simple fact you know the homeless population is not going to the salon to get Brazilians. Idiot reporters.

That's why I usually recommend that people keep their public lice and privates lice separate.

"Panic feeds on fear"? Really? That's the best they could do?

"Mind killer" or "the Dark Side" too cliche, I guess.

Hey, well thanks for clearing that up! For a moment there I thought that maybe he caught them while online.

Which leads me to my next question: How exactly does one catch pubic lice while online?

Csb:
Had a buddy in the Marines catch crabs once. Convinced him the best way to get rid of them was to soak his balls in zippo lighter fluid then shave them. He couldn't walk right for a week!
