It is my understanding that this new flu is a hybrid of swine and avian strains.

Therefore, I postulate that pigs can fly.

(Had to get that riff in there before Jon Stewart beat me to it. Oh, and shhhh… nobody tell Carlos Mencia).

Sure you’re not referring to a fly in the oinkment?

(I’m flu-shy, don’t bother me.)

I was going to post a pic of the po-lice kissing a pig to represent the passing of the swine flu virus, but I couldn’t find one… and now, after hearing that the Egyptian government is going to needlessly kill thousands of pigs in their country, I can’t help but wonder how many other people are thinking what I’m thinking… and what I’m thinking can be summed up in the form a the tune from Pink Floyd’s The Wall and it goes:
“Hey! Fuckwits, leave those pigs alone!”

Hey, WWJD?
