Influenza MF

I'm getting pretty tired of Swine Flu being treated as if it's AIDS. It's an interesting exercise in how germs spread, but that's all.

We've got Man Flu in our house at the moment, which is a much more serious affair, and I wish they could hurry up with a vaccine for that. Poor chookies, wearing their bums out for something that doesn't have a tenth of the domestic impact of Influenza MF...

Oh no, not man flu. You poor thing.

We've just had a case ourselves. It's clearly spreading fast across NSW. Where are the alerts? Where is the extra funding? Where is my mother-in-law when I need her?

HAAAAAHAHAHAHAhaha ha ha .. heh ...

Actually, not so much. It's a bit too true to be funny, innit.

See you next week then... lesbians are allergic to man flu which displays itself by pursed lips, folded arms and tourette's syndrome mutterings of "oh for fuck's sake, it's a cold."

Well, that defines my sexuality then, because that's all I do!

Actually, it's only a mild case at the moment, but liable to descend into the pit any day. I'm pumping him (and us) up with dishes full of garlic and lemon and it seems to be staving off any really big whinging.

Excellent documentary clip.

Interestingly mine doesn't get man-flu. He's the 'soldier on' type and doesn't complain much after the very beginning. In some ways it's worse 'cos he shares it around a lot before he collapses. He's got a cold now in fact, but he's in the US. I'll bet anything they think he's got swine flu and quarrantine him when he gets home. Which i can understand, but I don't want to be quarantined too!

Just wanted to say I'm enjoying working my way through the site. Randomly stumbled on it. Will be back soon :)
