Now Can We Use Its Real Name?

USDA CONFIRMS H1N1 IN MINNESOTA PIGS

Fox News is reporting that a pig at the Minnesota State Fair had the flu. NOW THAT A PIG HAD IT, CAN WE PLEASE RESUME CALLING THIS STRAIN OF FLU BY ITS NAME, “SWINE FLU?”

I've been calling it the Hiney (H1N1) Flu and will continue to.
Hooked on Phonics worked for me... ;o)

I'm sorry, Sir, but that would be incorrect, politically speaking of course.

Actually, it should be called teh Mexican flu, according to the gnomes who advice me of such things.
The name has been the origination point, as in the Spanish flu, Hong Kong flu, Barney Fwank flu, etc.
