CBC.CA has outdone Fascinating Tales with Tuesday’s feature: Is swine flu’s name hogwash? I wish I had written this. If this article had appeared on Fascinating Tales, it would have been so obviously a fabrication. Truth, again, is stranger than fiction.
As is often the case, the reader comments are half the fun. Give the article a read. See the video. (I haven’t seen it yet.)
The name of the flu is a big deal to some people. This isn’t the only blog to have picked up on this. Born-again atheist, Brother Richard, has a much better cartoon on his blog.
If eating swine’s flesh is a bad thing (Is. 66:17), then why not a nasty name like “swine flu”? Although, personally, I would prefer “Porky Pig Pandemic.”
And don’t forget to provide your input in the column to the right.
