That has to be the most money anyone has ever been paid for getting the herps. Hell, I'd take a case for a million bucks. It's not like they caught hiv. It ain't a terminal illness. It's just annoying and embarrassing and gross.Read More

The entrepreneurial bug is alive and well and I have been bit! I've always had an entrepreneurial spirit. I was the kid who sold candy in middle school. I briefly had my own clothing line in high school. Well, actually I was just ironing designs onto t-shirts from my printer but in my head I was Sean John.
