But just think of all the new STD's the children could find out about.

Who really thought this idea would fly?? Even in '91 it was too PC for this to last long.

Some time from the late 1970's, I remember a sketch (Cheech & Chong? / Monty Python?) where the premise was a game show and the contestant had to name the disease they had been inoculated with within a short amount of time before being given the antidote.

KDP - Are you maybe thinking of "Beat The Reaper", by The Firesign Theatre? It's on side 2 of "Waiting for the Electrician or Someone Like Him".
