BBC- A man in the UK has caught the world’s “worst-ever” case of super-gonorrhoea. He had a regular partner in the UK, but picked up the superbug after a sexual encounter with a woman in south-east Asia. Public Health England says it is the first time the infection cannot be cured with first choice antibiotics. Health officials are now tracing any other sexual partners of the man, who has not been identified, in an attempt to contain the infection’s spread. He picked up the infection earlier in the year. The main antibiotic treatment – a combination of azithromycin and ceftriaxone – has failed to treat the disease. Dr Gwenda Hughes, from Public Health England, said: “This is the first time a case has displayed such high-level resistance to both of these drugs and to most other commonly used antibiotics.”

So that sucksssssssssss for that guy. Really sucks. Its never good any time the words “world’s worst” and “super” and “gonorrhoea” are all next to each.  It does give everyone else some perspective though. Yeah life is hard and things aren’t the best all the time and we’re all broke but hey, do you have the world’s worst case of super gonorrhoea? If your answer is no then your life is at least better than one person (unless the guy who has the world’s worst case of super gonorrhoea is a Stoolie and he’s reading this right now in which case, sorry pal). It’s good to zoom out from time to time and realize your life could be a whole hell of a lot worse.

On the other hand, if you’re gonna do something, be the best (or in this case, worst) at it. Tons of people get gonorrhoea. It’s a pretty common thing. The other people who get it just get a lame normal version. Not this guy. He has WORLD’S WORST CASE OF SUPER GONORRHOEA. All caps. It might not sound great but it is noteworthy. I don’t write blogs about normal cases of gonorrhoea but I do write blogs about really really really bad cases of gonorrhoea. So that’s something this guy can hang his hat on. Getting gonorrhoea is like being a professional sports franchise. You either wanna be one of the best teams in the league or one of the worst. There’s no trophy or draft pick for having a middling case of gonorrhoea.
