Krusty: I don't want to hit a sore spot, but can we talk about herpes? Herpes herpes, bo-berpes, banana, fana fo-ferpes -- her-pes. Ow! Hey: that spot on Gorbachev's head -- herpes, trust me! Anybody here have herpes? Huh? Huh?You people are the worst audience I've ever seen.

Man: You're the worst comedian we've ever seen!

Krusty: Oh, great! Well, we'll just sit here silently for the next
ninety minutes.

Man: Fine with us.

Cold sores. They transmitted cold sores.

Probably should have stayed home sick, but it's not like they're kiddie diddlers.

Herpes Simplex is a virus that is carried by 80% of the human population. In infants and toddlers, one should make sure they don't go from their mouths to their eyes or genitals. Some acyclovir does wonders. Next topic please.

If I recall correctly, a majority of the world population has HSV-1, but many people are entirely unsymptomatic despite being infected.

It's extremely contagious and really not a big deal.

Cold sores aren't the same as sexually transmitted herpes.

It's fairly contagious (oral herpes) and can be transmitted by simply drinking after someone...or touching someone's drink then putting your hand in your mouth.  This kind of sounds like someone after money and it will probably fail.

Your kid can be in the most sanitary daycare and catch everything in the world.  Parents bring sick kids in all the time which just transmits it to the other babies and toddlers.  By the time your kid is two or three they should have an immune system from hell.

Baby Momma, did the Baby Daddy give the child the herpes?  Hope you didn't vaccinate yo' baby.

Smith says she took her daughter to the doctor immediately.
"They told me that she has herpes," she said.


There's the problem, really.  The doctor failed to account for the fact that Mom is an illiterate, uneducated farkwit, and used a clinical name that also a type of STD.

If he had called it a coldsore, we wouldn't be hearing about this.
 
2014-07-16 04:30:32 PM  
HSV-1 is about as common as HPV-1 and -2.

But if a kid gets a wart on their thumb, do we make misleading news articles about it?
 
2014-07-16 04:30:43 PM  
Probably caught it from a toilet seat.

UberDave: It's fairly contagious (oral herpes) and can be transmitted by simply drinking after someone


A buddy of mine in college got it after drinking out of someone else's bottle.  It's why I never, ever, EVER drink out of something someone else has.  Gives me the creeps.

Daycare workers are in close contact with the kids in their care for 8+ hours a day.

Toddlers love grabbing at people's faces - in particular at features (nose, mouth, ears) - and could easily contract the virus from doing that.

Or the carer may have touched near their mouth and then picked up something the kid played with soon after - toddlers also tend to put everything they pick up in their mouths.

Someone with the cold sore virus also does not even need to be showing or feeling symptoms to be contagious.

From the American Academy of Pediatrics:

Oral herpes is a common viral disease of childhood.

Now, sure, nobody wants their kid to get cold sores but this isn't the deal the Mom is making it out to be - they get a bout now that will be a bit rough and then all subsequent attacks in later years will be pretty mild and will probably get less and less severe as time goes by. Life goes on.

Haven't you heard? Pederasty and pedophilia are normal for males according to researchers in the UK.

See here:
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/comment/10948796/Paedophilia-is-natural-a nd -normal-for-males.html

The statement that paedophilia is "natural and normal" was made not three decades ago but last July. It was made not in private but as one of the central claims of an academic presentation delivered, at the invitation of the organisers, to many of the key experts in the field at a conference held by the University of Cambridge.

 Hate to break it to you, but with Tuberculosis coming over the open southern border and now the new normal is Twinks, NAMBLA (who now work at the department of Health and Human Services), pedophilia and pederasty - diseases like these are going to become widespread and abuse of children and sex trafficking is going to skyrocket, just like energy prices.

Also, in other news, Incest is now normal according to a judge in Australia:
http://rt.com/news/171868-australia-judge-incest-homosexuality/

An Australian judge has incurred the wrath of child protection and gay rights advocates after stating that incest and pedophilia may no longer be considered taboo - just as gay relationships are now more accepted than they were in the 1950s and 60s.

Liberalism is truly a severe mental disorder.

I personally while on any jury will never convict a parent who seeks revenge or lethal revenge against these Satanic disgusting predators.

Yeah, it's more of a probably/possibly type of situation. They can't even reliably test for it. There are probably lots of people out there who are carriers who never have a breakout and thus never know they have it, but can still give it to others.

obamadidcoke: Wow it's good to see that some people still display their racism so openly


I know. Being white and or Christian means constant insults and aggression by an evil government while we have to pay all of the taxes and do all of the work. I wish I could get thank you notes from all the families I raise with money taken from me for their EBT cards. AND to boot, despite the racism against me and giving half my paycheck for wealth "load-balancing" I'm the racist SOB.

Time to John Galt these rats.

Yeah, the American Academy of NAMBLA doctors. Remember the pervert  Joycelyn Elderswho wanted to teach kids how to masturbate ? I even think she meant actually showing them too (like not with diagrams).

Kids are just constantly oozing bodily fluids. A daycare or kindergarten is like dumping your kid in a bin of dirty needles. They're going to catch stuff. They're going to transmit stuff.

I'm of the impression that she potentially knew it was just a cold sore, and that it is a form of herpes, so by calling it herpes, she can extract a cash payment from the daycare. .
