Perineal Silicosis aka Sand in your Crotch
Perineal Silicosis is characterized by silicon dioxide deposition in the perineal region. However, PS has a characteristic neurological component that is the basis of clinical diagnosis. Patients with PS are irritable, adversarial, sarcastic and annoying during social situations. Behavior can best be described as "bitchy," complaining endlessly over trivial matters that no one else cares about. PS patients are prone to overreactions and endless whining. The rants generated by a patient with PS are frequently vitriolic, overly emotional, and most unfortunately, completely devoid of humor.
Etiology and Epidemiology:
The cause of perineal silicosis is currently unknown but recent studies suggest a heavy genetic influence, with certain populations more prone to infection than others. Rates of occurrence tend to increase during times of stress, perhaps hinting at a hormonal component. Though this is an acquired affliction, the source is undetermined and it is not believed to be communicable with human to human contact. It is believed to strike men and women at equal rates but more accurately diagnosed, and treated, among men.
There is no established treatment protocol for PS but common practices usually include social isolation and/or mockery of the patient. With extreme cases, blunt force trauma across the patient's face using either the metacarpal or dorsum of one's hand may be necessary. Treatments should be applied PRN by classmates, co-workers, friends or any other volunteer nearby.
