    What, no Hudson River Virus from Jericho?

    On that page I discovered there exists an animated series of ‘Spaceballs’.

    Just added Entitilitus and Imminent Death Syndrome, two *major* omissions. Seriously though, I can’t imagine this list will ever be anywhere near comprehensive.

  4. Really? No Rabbit-titus? I’m so shocked I’m seeing spots before my eyes!

    Barclay’s Protomorphosis Syndrome. I’ll have to fill that one in later.

    I read the headline as “Frictional disease”, and shuddered with horror as I considered what that could be. I am slightly relieved now.

    My imaginary friend had some of those. I game him a placebo.

    They’re missing Space Herpes from The Ice Pirates… Though more a mini Alien than a disease, it’s still a great line.  :)
