Here Piggy Piggy Piggy
It is upon us. The wretched horror of a pandemic. I have heard it talked about since I was a youngster. They said one day it would come and it would cause the suffering of millions.It will be a living nightmare they said. It would spread across the country and indeed the world incredibly fast and no one would be safe. There would be no where to hide from its effects, you could try, but it would be to no avail. Yes it is here ladies and gentlemen it is......The media coverage of the swine flu.Christ are we all really so damn paranoid? At least this shows we are becoming a little numb to the drama that the media boils up because if everyone was to take the media coverage at face value then there would be looting in the streets and the national guard would be out enforcing curfew.Don't get me wrong it is a serious thing this swine flu or whatever they have chosen to call it now. But I think the serious part is that this is a shot across the bow. We better wake up and we better be careful cause all it takes is a mutation and a little cross breeding and we are in serious trouble....maybe. I have heard a couple of theories on how a pandemic that kills a significant portion of the human race would be a very unlikely occurrence.Those theories make sense but I wouldn't bet the numbers of lives that would be lost if incorrect on it. That being said could someone please tell the media to shut the hell up.I mean the news of the first American to die from it was on every network, it was like they all were shouting fire in a movie theater because someone turned on a flashlight. That fatality was a kid visiting from Mexico and he had other health problems. There was no one who was going to say that the kid had passed away from swine flu and be certain about it.And what is with the masks? WASH YOUR HANDS! and lay off picking your nose for a couple of weeks, and be polite by covering your face when you cough or sneeze. I think we should all go to the old full proof training method for those who don't cover their mouths when they should....a slap upside the head. So from this point on lets all resolve to do this...whenever you see someone picking their nose,coughing or sneezing without covering their mouths or wearing one of those masks(especially those idiots who leave their nose or mouths exposed while the other is covered) Give them a nice hard quick slap upside the head followed by "What the fuck is wrong with you?!Be considerate of others!" And if they mouth off pop em again and say "don't make me tell you again" this will result in those people having a flashback to childhood and cause them to reply with something like "yes ma'am" or "yes sir". Or it will result in your getting the hell beat out of you but at least you won't be beaten by hands someone has been sneezing all over.That should be of some relief to you, now go home and watch the news, we still have famine and locust to look forward to.
