Swine Flu in Whoppers?

I just got some ice cream (X-Cream-Sundae 🙂 ) for my wife and me at Burger King and a guy who bought a few burgers in front of me returned to the desk to ask if there is pork in the burgers. Nice 😉 ! OK, you can never know but Whoppers are known to have 100% beef. Swine-Flu-Angst?

Today we went also on a nice long walk with our baby. When three Spanish speaking women passed our stroller my wife started wondering if they had been from Mexico. Then we started wondering how close you need to get to someone to get infected with Swine Flu.

I think the swine flu is not funny at all but sometimes simple facts get lost in media – Egypt began a controversial slaughter of the nation’s 250 000 pigs in earnest on Saturday, despite the WHO saying there was no evidence the animals were transmitting swine flu to humans (source:http://www.iol.co.za/index.php?from=rss_Africa&set_id=1&click_id=68&art_id=nw20090502151554634C858680) – and just like the guy at Burger King my mother in law called one day after the news of the outbreak and said we shouldn’t eat pork anymore. Nice! What media can do… puhh

Here are some real facts about H1N1: http://www.cdc.gov/h1n1flu/

Really interesting is that the global financial crysis looks like a joke compared to this epidemic. Perfect material for nice conspirancy theories!
