Supposedly syphilis crossed over to humans from sheep. So if it hadn't have been for some pervert sheperd way back when...

BTW, I've always wondered, is syphilis "the clap" or is that some other venereal disease?

"The Clap" is gonnorreah, not syphilis.

Well definitely from some of them. But there are plenty of respectable folk who have stds too. Just takes sleeping with one person who slept with someone who had it, and on and on.
