Silicon Valley - Despite its well-known effectiveness against some viral diseases such as syphilis and bacterial infections caused by staphylococci and streptococci, Penicillin is completely ineffective against computer viral infections.
This fact was substantiated last week when a man suffering from raging syphilis found that his home desktop computer had contracted a virus. The man was receiving regular injections of penicillin from his medical physician to treat his syphilis, but he had chosen to personally augment that treatment with illegal prescription Penicillin that he purchased in Mexico.
To treat the computer virus, the man forced penicillin capsules into the DVD/CD slot on his computer.
The treatment was ineffective. In fact, not only did the treatment not cure the computer virus, the DVD/CD drive was rendered useless.
