creeping crud
 n.— «The creeping crud was going around, so some players were sick with flu-like symptoms. Then we lost two non-starters with mono. And we were afraid it was going to spread to the whole team.» —“Two area volleyball teams have sights on 5A title/Clear Lake trying to overcome injuries” by Neal Farmer Houston Chronicle (Texas) Nov. 17, 1988.
