You can’t turn on the idjit box lately without hearing about the encroaching evil of the swine flu. Sorry, but I’m having a little difficultly throwing the freak-out switch over an illness that’s easily treated and more easily barbecued. Mmm, pulled virus on bun with fries.

Besides, this thing isn’t new. Take a look at these swine flu PSAs from 1976. If them bastage pigs couldn’t stop our bicentennial, I don’t think they’ll stop us now. Oh, wait.

Best line: “But Dotty had a heart condition and she died.” The voice over just cracks me up. Besides, we all know Dotty faked her death to avoid gambling debts.

Thanks to my fellow writer Daniel Beaudoing for the heads up.
