Gonorrhea and Chlamydia, the great comedy team from the 60’s is back and better than ever. Hilarity ensues. And rashes. And pain too. Lots and lots of pain.

CBS reports:

Sacramento County’s health department will begin distributing a take-home STD test for women that won’t cost users a penny.

The city has one of the highest rates of STDs in the state, and it keeps going up every year. Now a new online program will hopefully get more people to get tested.

“We definitely need all the help we can get,” said Sacramento County Public Health Officer Dr. Olivia Kasirye.

The division of public health says STDs are spreading like wildfire in Sacramento, with chlamydia and gonorrhea considered an epidemic.

The interesting thing here is that while the Health Department is saying these terrible diseases are spreading like wildfire, they’re not even suggesting that maybe you shouldn’t jump into the sack with anyone and everyone. They just are setting up free tests.

Wouldn’t you think if there’s an “epidemic” which is “spreading like wildfire” the Health department would tell people to stop doing the things that causes it?

When people smoke cigarettes, did the government simply set up CT scans for people or did they inform them of the dangers of smoking? I seem to remember the government being pretty strenuous in telling people not to smoke.
