Attention Hypochondriacs: Leprosy is Fun

So sayeth the Washington Post on May 27, 2008:
“it has been a really cool experience having a biblical disease.”
Which probably has a lot to do with the fact that in this modern age, when it comes to leprosy, “about 95 percent of people are thought to be naturally immune to it,” there’s a routine test to diagnose it and it is “effectively treatable.”
Please make a note of it.
update: more fun, thanks to lestro and Monty Python’s “The Life of Brian”:
