Wooden statue depicting a plague sufferer, Europe, 1601-1700
Depicted on the statue is an emaciated plague sufferer lying on the ground surrounded by a frog and a lizard. The wooden carving is thought to have been made during the 1600s when Europe suffered devastating outbreaks of bubonic plague. In 1665, over 100,000 may have died of the disease in London alone. The most common manifestation of the disease was bubonic plague. This was spread by fleas carried by rodents. It spread swiftly in densely populated towns. The fleas became infected after sucking on the rat’s blood and then they spread the disease to humans. Symptoms included nausea, pain, delirium, high fever and the painful swollen boils (buboes) which give the disease its name. Sporadic plague outbreaks still occur. If contracted, it is treatable with drugs. The disease is now prevented with vaccinations.

San Francisco, 1998: Performing on the very stage that Phyllis Diller and Tiny Tim made famous back in the 1960s, The Haters performed The Grinding Gig at the Purple Onion. Two performers each had an electric drill mounted with a grinding wheel. They both pushed the spinning grinders into a live microphone being held up by a third. The mic was slowly worn down to a stub. Applause followed from the cheering audience. This performance lasted 30 minutes.
