We really love to grasp at straws lately, don’t we? Here’s the latest straw. “We’ll get a black president when pigs fly” has become “when we get a black president, we’ll get the swine flu.” Can we get any more ridiculous? Oh no, I shouldn’t ask the question.
Oh, and here’s a funny aside for you that my dad told me about. You know how news folk are being discouraged from calling the H1N1 virus “Swine Flu?” Well, apparently on Canada A.m. while they talk about how it’s not swine flu, it’s H1N1, they flash pictures of pigs on the screen. Nice job, guys.
