Juan Miguel Porky; Mexican Minister for Tourism announced on Mexican TV today that there has been a 2000% increase in holiday bookings for 2009.
"Our hotels are fully booked" he said, "it seems this pig flu has really put us on the map". Supporting his claim was Jose 'Pepe' Porky; a junior member of the World Health Organisation and Juan Miguels brother. "it's true" said Pepe Porky, "some of our rural areas, especially those close to pig farms cannot cope with demand".
We spoke to several holiday companys and indeed discovered that thousands of British adventure sports tourists are flocking to Mexico in huge numbers, we interviewed one eager customer seen leaving a travel agency this morning and asked what was happening, "well, we normally go bungee jumping in New Zealand, snow-boarding down Everest or white water rafting in Canada, but, to be honest, those things seem a bit tame if you ask me, no risk anymore, we can't get an adrenalin rush wearing safety gear like silly helmets and high-vis life jackets. Mexican pigs are really dangerous, especially if they have a runny nose and a bit of a sniffle, all my mates are heading off there to have a photo taken next to an Acapulco porker".
Facebook has crashed 3 times this week through excessive uploads of adventure seeking young Brits posting images of themselves wrestling naked with Mexican pigs.
The UK department of Health have issued a warning regarding such risky activities, one spokesperson said, "this kind of dangerous behaviour is ridiculous, believe me, it shouldn't be allowed, I have wrestled pigs naked before when I was on holiday with Jacqui Smiths husband, there is nothing to be gained apart from a decent porn video"!
British Holiday Camps have been impressed by the popularity of naked pig wrestling and plan to offer it at several of it's own resorts on Friday nights between bingo and Abba tribute bands.
Saga Holidays have announced some experiments have been successful with pork scratchings but failed to explain what they had done with them!
