Who has Genital Herpes?

wherp.jpg

According to a new study by the CDC, 1 in 6 Americans between the ages of 14 and 49 has genital herpes.

So, which one of us do you think is the most likely culprit?
I kid, of course.


(Note: Scaramouch is British so he's off the list - on a technicality)

Just herpes, or are we talking genital warts, cankers and various other lesions as well?

Uh...I mean, not me!

HA! I am not between the ages of 14 and 49!

Johnny for sure. Wasn't he out of the country a while back? Ain't know way that man is out/about and not doing things that would make a porn star blush.

Okay, Miss C is out of the running. That's leaves 5

Very sound reasoning Jeff.

It's definitely Echo and.....you're welcome.

Cleet - does your mom tell you everything?

This article states that 1 in 6 Americans is infected with Genital Herpes. That is roughly 17% of the population between the ages of 14 and 49. So, 83% of the remaining surveyed age group does not have Genital Herpes ... well not so fast. According to the article, 80% of those infected do not even know it. You have to then assume that those that knowingly have GH honestly stated the fact and are indeed part of the 17% in the survey. This means that 80% of the remaining 83% do not know they are infected with GH, or roughly 66.4% of the population aged between 14 & 49. So if you add those that DO KNOW and those that DON'T KNOW, you are talking of 83.4% of people in that age group has Genital Herpes. That is MORE THAN FOUR OUT OF FIVE people are infected with Genital Herpes. Now Miss C has already been excluded as she is not a member of the core group, therefore it is my conclusion, that Echowood, Johnny, Bigus, Jeem and Bman all have Genital Herpes, but only one of them is aware of this fact. QED.

Ben, it says 80% of those infected do not know, not 80% of those remaining do not know.

But ... while your interpretation of that premise may be incorrect, I think your final conclusion is sound. Herpes all around.

P.S. I happen to know for a fact that one of our beloved YBNBY contradictors is patient zero.

Undercover, of course.

said Tim on March 10, 2010 2:07 PM.

Thanks Tim, I've read that Orangutans are highly intelligent. So then, 80% of those that test positive (the 17%) aren't told that they have Herpes? Therefore they do not know. Please forgive me ... I went to public school.

said Ben Lurkin on March 10, 2010 2:31 PM.

I wouldn't know if myself if I didn't have the pamphlet.

I happen to know for a fact that I do not know if I have what I'm not sure I have.

That's a fact, Jack.

said Baierman on March 10, 2010 3:41 PM.

and knowing is half the battle.
