"Don't touch me, I have swine flu"

It appears that the human race is completely threatened by the outbreak of a pig-based virus, which has killed 81 people in Mexico and may possibly spread to the rest of the world.

Journalists have not enjoyed such a media frenzy since the devastating outbreak of the SARS virus in 2003, which killed almost 800 people and may have wiped out mankind, if only the human race was more intimately involved with chickens.

SARS was a horrific disease, and made millions of television owners nervous as they watched the virus's progress on 24-hour news channels which refused to broadcast anything else. Today, it is expected that Mexican swine flu will affect even more, and may cause large numbers of those people to literally shit themselves, or at least avoid Mexico for a long time, due to the extreme levels of fear being propagated over the airwaves.

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