With all the news lately about outbreaks of swine flu, I thought I'd pass along some links, advice and folk wisdom about how to avoid catching and spreading the virus:
First of all, "Ashway ouryay andshay!"
Second, here are some answers to frequently asked questions about swine flu from the Centers for Disease Control.
Third, it's still safe to eat bacon (at least over the short term; eating it three times a day for several decades is still lethal), according to this report from The Associated Press.
And, finally, folk wisdom in the form of some porcine song lyrics, as relayed by the Web site www.traditionalmusic.co.uk:
The Pig and the Inebriate
It was early last December, as near as I remember
I was walking down the street in tipsy pride
No one was I disturbing, as I lay down by the curbing
And a pig came up and lay down by my side.
As I lay there in the gutter, thinking thoughts I cannot utter
A lady passing by was heard to say
"You can tell a man who boozes by the company he chooses"
And the pig got up and slowly walked away.
(The moral of the story being, perhaps, that one is more susceptible to catching swine flu, among other communicable diseases, when one is under the influence.)
