Don't ask, don't tell

The American Medical Association stunned the nation today with the release of a report deriding doctors for purposely misdiagnosing anal herpes as hemorrhoids. The report estimates that nearly two-thirds of the painful rectal sores are in fact due to sexual activity the patients are reluctant to admit.

Flagrantly homosexual men are usually told the truth about their disease states the report, but others claiming to be straight are more often than not lied to about the sensitive condition.

"It's just better for their morale," said a family doctor who wished to remain anonymous. "People are already so uncomfortable with anything wrong below the belt."
