Response from Dr. Frascino


First documented case? Nope! Sorry Charlie, you'll have to look elsewhere for your 15 minutes of fame. Unless your barber is Sweeney Todd, the Demon Barber of Fleet Street, you have absolutely nothing to worry about from an HIV perspective. OK? No further HIV testing is warranted. And hey, that new fauxhawk style is way kewl!

Thanks for your tax-deductible donation to the Robert James Frascino AIDS Foundation (

Be well.

Dr. Bob
