image for President Wants New Name For Swine Flu

United States President Barack Obama in an emergency session with his cabinet again today over the Swine Flu, has requested that from now on to begin calling it, "Miss Piggy Flu".

We're hurting here", stated Obama. "We depend on tourism and ...TOURISM is dropping like Miss Piggy Flu victims. This...thing could last...awhile. I..suggest that we get permission from the ....Muppet People to..use that pig's name."

The news went online immediately on Drudge and Rush Limbaugh called it a crock, two minutes later.

Meanwhile, several public announcements are being prepared featuring Kermit the Frog, Oscar, Gonzo and a whole host of other Muppets as cute as can be.

On radio, "The Miss Piggy Flu Connection" song is being played at most stations.

While President Obama has assured Americans there is "no cause....for alarm" by reading it off his prompter, aides say he has ordered Homeland Security to begin referring to the illness as "Miss Piggy Flu" in hopes of avoiding widespread panic.

Meanwhile in Iran, President Ahmadinejad announced that Iran had zero number of Swine Flu victims and will never have any. "Our women were already prepared with their faces covered." Then, just to spite Obama, Ahmadinejad repeated the term, "Swine Flu In America" 25 times and ordered it to be broadcast as such, 24 hour a day.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
