I prefer to call it the Mexican flu. We have had pandemics called the Asian flu, and the Hong Kong flu because they originated in those places. So let's call it the Mexican flu.
I am surprised that Obambi hasn't blamed Bush for this disease. But wait, if it gets worse, he will!
Hospital to the World Welcomes Illegal Aliens and Contagious Diseaseshttp://www.newswithviews.com/Cosman/made...
by Late Dr. Madeleine Cosman
Illegal aliens cross America’s borders medically unexamined. We shrug. We do not know what Illegal Aliens carry in their backpacks. We do not know what they carry in their bodies. Long ago we knew what legal immigrants brought with them. When my grandpa came to America, he kissed the ground of New York’s Ellis Island, then he stripped naked and coughed hard. Every legal immigrant before 1924 was examined for infectious diseases upon arrival and tested for tuberculosis. Anyone infected was shipped back to the old country. That was powerful incentive for each newcomer to make heroic efforts to appear healthy.

Why can't viruses have cool names, like the "Chimera" virus or "the Chinese Synthetic" like you see in the movies?
Or maybe just call it the Muslim virus? They could be honored and offended at the same time...jk.

Sounds good to me.
And then we won't offend illegal aliens, excuse me, undocumented aliens from Mexico by calling it the Mexican Flu like the Israelis want to.

More like "Hype Flu," I'm sorry but this crap is overrated.
The Regular Flu spreads quicker and kills more.
80/303,000,000 Who cares?

Its not about Muslims...its about accuracy AND dispelling the incorrect notion that it is related to pork.

Hater Police said...

The "Obama Flu" sounds very approriate. Or perhaps the porkulus flu

Buck Ofama said...

Is there anything else we can do to not offend the precious Muslims. Should we off Porky Pig.

Oh Noooooooo! said...

No we shouldn't. We should call it what it is and grow up.

Mogu Pillows said...

Yes! It is overly hyped up by the media as well. Just like Obama!

racingdi said...

It's not meant to not offend Muslims (by the way, Jews are insulted by it too), it's meant to not damage the pork industry. If you call it "swine flu", people will think you get it by eating pork, so people would buy less pork, so butchers would get into trouble and the pork industry would need a bailout.
Similarly, if you call it "Obama flu", people will think it's Obama's fault, which would also be unfair. H1N1 is a nice and boring name, which makes people care less for it (because you republican heartlands don't care much for science), so the hype around it goes down, which is good.
