Something blown far out of proportion by the media and the World Health Organization. It's just like the "normal" flu, excluding the fact that this swine flu does not currently have a vaccination.

The media fails to tell you that the only people who have died of this so-called "deadly" virus are:

1) Mexicans with terrible health care and terrible health in general who are living in close quarters.

2) Babies and old people

Note that anyone who has any remote knowledge on disease knows that these types of people die from the "normal" flu, and that the swine flu isn't some kind of deadly disease because it hasn't killed anyone that a normal sickness wouldn't have.

Also take note of the fact that hundreds of people have gotten sick in the United States alone, and yet all of these cases were called "mild". Know that all of these "mild" cases have occurred in adults and/or teenagers, who would not die from the "normal" flu.

What also is failed to be mentioned is the fact that a "Pandemic" is any disease that is spread worldwide. Thus, just because the swine flu is a pandemic doesn't mean we'll all die. The common cold is a pandemic, and no one goes around freaking out about that.

This is another phase in the "we're-all-gonna-die" angst in 50% of the human population. It'll pass by 2010.
It was once said that pigs will fly when we have a black President. Now we have the swine flu.

90 people die from Swine Flu and everyone wants to wear a mask. Millions of people die from AIDS and nobody wants to wear a condom.
Swine flu is just like any other fucking flu. Get over yourselves.

A type of flu, that despite being around for decades and having periodic flare ups that kill relatively few people, is somehow the new supervirus that is going to destroy humanity.

The media's ability to blow this out of proportion rates somewhere between Y2K and WMD in Iraq.
The media has talked nonstop about swine flu for months despite it being less severe and less deadly than the seasonal flu.

Recommended treatment for swine flu: Sprite, chicken soup, and low dose Tylenol.

Jerry caught swine flu! He might not be back to work until Thursday!

You have a greater chance of dying in a car accident on your way to get your swine flu shot than of dying from swine flu.

Businessman: ZOMG, it's Autumn when everybody gets sick; let's give the flu a name like "Swine Flu" to boost our vaccine sales!
