When Pigs Fly

Send help! The swines have invaded my home!

The kitchen:

(Why, no, I don't believe in dusting!)

Even on top of the fridge!

They've even taken over my bedroom!

All the way down to my pillowcase!

I mean really people. If I hear "swine flu" one more effin' time I'm going to puke and create a biohazard panic of my own.

Y2K
SARS
Bird Flu
Mad Cow Disease
Michael Jackson
Killer Bees
Peanutbutter Salmonella

Have you ever met anyone who has experienced or died of any of these things?

When you start to panic about things like swine flu, ask yourself: "What would the starving kitties in Iraq report about?"

But then again maybe you should watch out for those shifty piggies.

It's making me laugh to see the panic. I remember the swine flu scare in the 80's. You have the right kind of swine there!

I saw an interview with some woman who had a family member ill withswine flu. they asked her to describe the symptoms. "Really bad headache, fever, body aches...." I had to laugh. The symptoms for swine flu are flu-like? who'd a thunk.

I'll just keep washing my hands, thanks.

I won't lie that I'm a smidge worried. My neighbothood is 3/4 Mexican, so the chances that someone has recently visited is pretty high.

I'm not about to wear a mask or run for the hills though. I'm just washing my hands more often and not getting close to anyone who is sniffling. Just like in the normal flu season.

My motto is, if its my time, then its my time no matter what's going on.

P.S. - the bees are back, but I can tolerate them much better knowing that they're temporary. :)

I'm with you, girlfriend. Swine flu, schmine flu.

Meh.

And be careful. Moochie could suffocate...

My word verification is "bulonu". Definition: a virulent strain of plague that came out of West Africa in the 2010's and killed half a million German tourists.

Great post. The scaremongering in the UK is in full flow. Every year the tabloids find some kind of killer bug to obsess over - pig colds are this years.

Loving the piggies.

I love the "Infants Can Suffocate" sign! That one piggie looks a bit precarious on your fridge!

I have the dragon version of that humidifier. They are terribly cute - I do like the pig version (I didn't have that option).

I experienced Michael Jackson in 1988, but it was only a concert, so I was at a safe distance. Phew.

Poor piggies getting a bad rap. Yours are very cute. They don't look very shifty but you never know....

Good handwashing all around. We hear it all the time @ the hospital.

Let's panic the masses just in time for vacation season.

Love, Aunt Susan

Wash hands and turn off the news... That's my advice for today.

don't forget Necrotizing fasciitis. that was a good one.

my coworker went home sick yesterday (personally i think she was faking it) and everyone immediately jumped to, "oh gosh, i hope she doesn't have swine flu." internally i laughed and laughed and made a mental note to think about coming down with swine flu myself.

OH! So the pigs have invaded! You know that is only part of your pigs. My crawlspace is full of the rest of them.

And what are those mask going to do for you if you rub your eyes with the "swine flu viurs" on them? Wash hands, wash hands, don't touch eyes nose etc!

Oh! What is happening to that little baby boy I saw down there? He is getting Soooooooo Big!

Love, Mom

Looks like it's too late, there's a serious outbreak of cute piggies. I particularly like the quilted one triumphant over a field of cows.

Cute post, and LOL about Michael Jackson! I liked Stickyfingers comment about warning labels. I bought a can of evaporated milk from Walmart once, and the label said "Allergy warning: contains milk". Ha, ha!

The only thing that worries me about that swine flu is that I don't have any medical insurance. If I have to go to the doctor, I'm screwed!
