an illness from Mexico that seems to be indistinguishable from the normal flu, and is more of a bunch of hypochondriacs parading around announcing how many symptoms they have up to date.
as much as everyone hates hearing these updates, secretly they're all is hoping someone DOES have it, so that school will get shut down and the make up days will be waved (preferably, for high schoolers, after prom and before graduation).
Evan: I have five symptoms of Swine flu!
Ashley: Oh my God! Not Swine! Eww don't cough on me!
Tom: Nobody has it, okay? (thinks to himself: but someone oughtta get it, wouldn't it be nice to have a free vacation....)
