Herpes is a volkswagon right? The love bug?

Overhead today in the Graduate Students Lounge:

Anon student 1: "And then I thought I had the CLAP!"

Anon student 2: "What? Did you say the Clap?"

Anon student 1: "Yeah, the CLAP."

Anon student 3: "What is that? Is that some disease?"

Anon student 2: "Is it like chlamydia or something?"

Anon student 1: "Yeah, I think it is like chlamydia...or something like that..."

I sipped my drink and rolled my eyes and thought it was a sad, sad day when graduate students didn't know what a good old fashioned STD was.

I waited then for the discussion on crabs - and how delicious they were with butter.

Hey, if you're going to use the term the clap, you might as well chuck that modern STD for the ever retro VD. ;-)

Really? People are still calling it The Clap?

When I was younger I used to think AC/DC's song "She's got the jack" was really "She's got the clap."

I still sing 'she's got the clap' when I hear it on the radio.

"or something like that..."...um, you might want to get that, like, offically diagnosed. Just one more reason why there should be condom vending machines in ALL schools.

Wouldn't you think in this day and age if you suspected you had contracted VD you would at least take the time to look it up on the internet?

Hahaha, that's correct, on these days nobody knows what is an STD actually, you gotta make the whole explanation to get the youngsters understand you, like: ''hey dude, what is that STD, a car model!!!???'' shame...
