Zac Fact #2 (Aww, isn’t that adorable?)

Syphilitic "snuffles" are nowhere near as cute as they may sound. Instead, the "snuffles" are a horrendously profuse, bloody nasal discharge.

  1. Ah…well done! I had just imagained that was a weird Professor-translation of “sniffles,” but hadn’t done the legwork to verify.

    Now I know why I got strange looks when I described the adorable runny nose of that crying, pig-tailed little girl as “snuffles.”
