Long, long ago, late night talk show host Dick Cavett hosted a documentary for PBS on the history of venereal disease. I remember him starting out by saying that there was a long history of diseases being named after a country's enemies. "The British call VD 'The French Disease'. The French call it 'The German Disease'. I call it 'Johnny Carson's Disease'."
