Well, my southern relatives always say, "Sugar Diabetes" and "Yellow Jaundice". I always want to ask if there is a Salt High Blood Pressure and what happens if you get Purple Jaundice.

LV, your post reminded me of the little old man who, when I asked if he was a diabetic, turned large eyes upon me and with wide-eyed and earnest solemnity, answered, "No ma'am, I'm a Christian." THEN I asked, "Do you have sugar di-betes?" To which he promptly replied in the negative!!! Gotta love 'em!!

Oh, man, Don! Where were they putting all of the foetuses?

I was told by a woman that she had "flea bites," aka phlebitis.:rolleyes:
