Stupid People

Incurable Disease Is The New Pandemic

picture of ugly peopleRecently, I’ve had quite a few conversations regarding medical issues.  First, a discussion with my sister-in-law about whether or not to vacinate our children against H1N1.  We are both educated, intelligent women who do not want to fall victim to wide-spread panic, but we are also loving mothers who will do everything we can for our kids.  The conversation was lengthy, and as yet, unresolved.

Yesterday, fellow-blogger Mike showed me a fascinating and inspirational article in the Globe and Mail about Dr. Paolo Zamboni and his possible cure for multiple sclerosis.

I also just found out that STDs are no longer STDs.  They are now STIs.  It would seem that sexually transmitted diseases are really infections.  Huh.  Millions of dollars and years of research later, they discovered the cure for the misleading name.  What a relief that must be for AIDS patients everywhere.

Today, I spent the morning at a children’s hospital with my 2-year old, who has had the stomach flu for the past 2 weeks.  In the end, nothing major to report in terms of his health, but the visit did confirm something I had, until now, merely suspected.

WWFC was founded to be the creative outlet for 2 people constantly amazed at the  incredible stupidity running rampant in our world.  Well, I have a news flash for all – there is a reason there are so many stupid people in the world.  A medical reason.  I have discovered and named it.  It is called Ugly Dumb F**K Disease.  UDFD is sexually transmitted.  It is hereditary.  It is not specific to any particular geographic location.  It affects men and women, of any ethnicity.  Generally, but not always, both parents are carriers.  Rarely, it can skip a generation, especially in cases where one parent is considered to have a mild case of UDFD.  Plastic surgery may alleviate some of the minor symptoms.  The major symptoms have no cure.  There does exist a mutated strain, which I call Attractive Dumb F**K Disease,  or ADFD.  This one often goes undiagnosed.

The one apparent upside in both strains, at least for the patients, is that one can, and often does, live an annoyingly long life with either of these diseases.

  • I think the vaccine is a scam and am not biting into it. My son had the flu recently *was horrible* and just like people have for decades he got over it.

  • Thanks for weighing in on this! I had the same initial feeling, my kids are all generally healthy, low-risk kids so I figured it would be ok to let it go. The problem is that, besides the fear mongers, there are some very articulate, reasonable medical professionals pushing for it – which makes me think twice. Sigh. I’ll probably just yoyo back and forth until they find a cure!

    Uh, I realize I’m combing future posts with past posts here in a weird sort of time-travel thing, but why are your kids getting sick and going to the hospital all the time, Mrs. Munchhausen?

    None of my kids, nor any of my sister-in-law’s kids, have been vaccinated for anything. And none of them are autistic, either. But it is a very confusing issue, one that’s consumed a lot of the time we had available to watch “House.”
