Swine flu: the pin up disease of the 21st Century.(And I promise this is the last one about the sniffly pig).

So the World Health Organisation has come out saying that we must all pull together re: (formally known as) swine flu as all of humanity is effected.

So far, 149 people have died from swine flu.

Yet, this year alone, starvation has killed around about 15 million.

Shouldn't we be feeling just a little bit sheepish?

Should just send all of our pork over to the starving people? We're not eating it!
I'm sure they don't give a fuck about swine flu, they've got Malaria to worry about!

Given a choice of swine flu or malaria, I know which one I'd be choosing.

Malaria?

None of us in the developed world can actually catch starvation.

If we could, there might be more of a fuss made about it.

Exactly Tinman, if it can be cured by a drug we care about it. (Well, a drug company does).

Oh and Gav, while I would rather get swine flu over malaria, I'd rather take Tamiflu over malaria pills. Those dreams are just too freaky.

Whoopsadaisy, of course I don't! (My father sent it to me!)
