Swine Flu
http://xkcd.com/574/


Yes, yes, yes... we're overdue for a real pandemic. But seriously, the media drums this shit up for ratings. SARS was totally going to own us like Y2K. Then Bird Flu was SARS. And now? Now we have Swine Flu. Can Swine Flu go all the way? WILL SWINE FLU HIT THE BIG TIME? Stay tuned to find out....

Morning news interview with doc, "At this point our main problem is the 'worried well'".

Don't think the interviewer took the hint.

Great.

Now I want to get a t-shirt that says, "I Survived Swine Flu once, I can do it again."

Link to LA Times article for those young'uns who have no idea what I'm talking about.

Oddly enough, I wasn't vaccinated back then - I was out sick when they did it. Ahhhh, irony. :)

And of course, when these things actually do blow up as advertised, we all run around screaming, "Why didn't anyone warn us?"

Do you notice that most of the cases are in Texas. By Mexico. Where the Mexicans live. I have news of ya friends, it's not the pigs responsible for this one. And they're moving north like Africanized bees, I just saw a Civic packed like a clown car with a crate of oranges on top. EVERYBODY PANIC!

Curse my luck. I just started the hobby of licking pigs. I was really getting into it too. It was going to be the next big thing. At least that's what that pig farmer told me. Damn those pig farmers!
