Whine about the Swine

I’ve always wanted to attend a pig catching competition. It’d be fun to watch idiots chase oily, muddy piglets around a pen for money. After watching a few YouTube clips, I’ve learned that catching swine is nearly impossible. But with that being said, why the hell is it so easy to catch Swine Flu?

The H1N1 virus is spreading fear throughout the United States. According to CNN, my college has the worst outbreak in the Midwest.

Sigh. Why couldn’t we be on the news for something cool like the discovery of Bigfoot‘s Facebook account or something?

With over 110 identified cases, you’d think our University would be closed or something. But nope. I must still go to class. The school officials have merely quarantined the sick students and distributed hand-sanitizer.

In fear that I might get it, I have some questions…

Will Swine Flu give me the sudden urge to eat bacon and pork chops?

Should I cover myself in oinkment?

Is this snoutbreak a serious hamdemic?

Will this cause the end of the world; Aporkalypse, Hamageddon, Pink Plague, etc…?

Will I sneeze by saying achoink?

Will there be a movie about the tragedies; “Swinedler’s List,” “Pig Trouble In Little Mexico,” “Babe: Death In The City,” etc…?

Once infected, can I use this pickup line: “Girl, you need to be quarantined, because you have a case of the Fine Flu.”

There’s so many swine flu jokes going around, it’s like an epidemic or something.

What the hell is Swine Flu anyway? I bet it came from a couple of jealous pigs. I mean, turkeys have Bird Flu, cows have Mad Cow Disease, and crabs have… uhh… yeah. I bet pigs wanted to cash in on the trend and bring home some extra bacon.

Damn those attention-boars.

Those pigs really piss me off. I used to trust them. I even had a piggy bank. First they took my money, and now they’re trying to kill me! Remember when PETA protested that meat is murder? They were warning us!

Help! I’m living in fear. I don’t think I’ll survive the Swine Flu! Well, maybe when pigs fly.

    Yeah but good thing the whole H1N1 is calmer now. There hasn't been any reported cases in our country for awhile so hopefully it has stopped. The flu jokes are hilarious though! The Achoink and Oinkment joke made me laugh πŸ˜›

    Yay Justin you blogged about swine flu! Everyone is so obsessed with it atm. I had my introduction to University Cosmology on Thursday and the guy actually said he expects half of us to be off with it and all this! Nice cheery introduction to the study of the planets there.

    Haha I've heard of that! I'm sick of it spreading so quickly. Everywhere I look there's some poster about it and everytime I turn on the TV it's either on the news or there's an advert about it. Eeeep that's a lot of cases! I'm not sure if my University has had any, it only just started back though. They should just close it! Arghh people think that hand sanitizer solves everything.

    Haha I like your questions, they are very good! Yes I agree the bigs weren't getting enough attention! It's really our fault I mean we shouldn't have made such a big fuss of the cows … we can only blame ourselves! The poor jealous pigs. I still have piggy banks! I'm going to go and smash them up in protest now :).

    Yeah, so many people are afraid of Swine Flu. My high school has been freaking out about it. There's been the regular cold/flu going around so everyone's like "DO YOU HAVE SWINE FLU?" I was sick two weeks ago, I'm glad it wasn't serious though. This second wave of H1N1 is supposed to cause more damage than the first xP

    BAHAHAHA. I just read that chat up line and started laughing out loud. πŸ™ And the movies :L

    Gah, swine flu is so overrated. It's just like normal flu, lie down and drink water and you'll be fine. Right? πŸ™

    This was great to read! I honestly think as long as you take care of yourself and wash your hands, and the like people will be fine. I'm looking at it as the regular flu, just a different strain. Am I scared of getting sick? Of course! I have tons of things I need to do, haha! But, it's kind of scary to see how fast people are spreading it.

    Aporkalypse….made my day!

    LOL, so many pig jokes so little space. I liked the the pink plague. I thought it was pig plague.

    I still call it swine flu. It is what it is. H1N1 is just like calling Gold by it's element name. :/ Nu. (i think)

    I think they should keep uni open though a quarantine the people. I would be annoyed paying for something to have it close because of the epidemic.

    I'll be back again! Thank you for being you! πŸ™‚
