image for US reports swine flu death; kills Porky Pig by mistake

Secret agents from the National Health Organization were reported to have shot and killed Porky Pig by mistake. The government denied the rumours that they killed the wrong swine to eradicate the flu circulating around Mexico.

"We take special precautions to ensure the public's safety and do not randomly kill celebrities on purpose. Although there are a few we wouldn't mind shooting just for fun." said a spokesman for the NHO.s

Several members of the cast "Porky in Paradise" were witness to the shooting. "They came down ropes from a helicopter and just started blasting away." a terrified woman said.

News of the shooting prompted the studio to call for an inquiry and BBQ sauce. The studio canteen was brought to the scene within minutes had set up a makeshift BBQ stand.

"America has lost a national treasure, but we will not go hungry until justice is served. Or after lunch, whatever comes first."

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