Pricked by a pin in a tux

Jun 10, 2004

When I was picking a rented tuxedo that had been altered, I accidentally pricked myself on a pin that was stuck through the collar. Of course immediately my mind starts thinking: what if someone who handled it right before me was HIV+ and also pricked themself on the pin? Do I have a legitimate concern or am I what-if-ing myself into a panic for no reason?

Sincerely: Pricked Democrat (as opposed to Republican Prick)

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello Pricked Democrat (as opposed to Republican Prick),

Yes, you are indeed what-if-ing yourself into a panic for no reason. The chances of you contracting HIV from that tuxedo prick (as opposed to an undressed Republican dick) are essentially nonexistent.

Stay well; stop worrying; stay safe; stay sane; stay Democrat.

Dr. Bob

Holy Shot!!
Thank you Dr. are a saint
