Headline: The WHO raises pandemic alert.
Article: The WHO's measure still falls short of declaring a pandemic
 
2009-04-27 06:14:07 PM  
Headliners: "David Caruso + President Madagascar"
Tagline: "When memes collide."

Level 4 - which means they're acknowledging sustained person-to-person transmission. We are now at this level.

Level 5 - widespread person-to-person transmissions, in two or more countries in one region.

Level 6 - we're farked. Full blown Pandemic.

/expect level 5 before the end of the day tomorrow
//level 6 by Sunday

"H -- Subby didn't make a deadpan pun in the headline."

"Most people can make the meme work....."

(Takes off sunglasses)

".... but in this case, the opportunity flu right by."

YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!

Uh oh Drew, might want to consider revising that earlier statement... who knows though, we just have to wait it out in our homes with duct tape surrounding the openings and surgical masks on.

This swine flu is going to South Carolina and Oklahoma and Arizona and North Dakota and New Mexico, and it's going to California and Texas and New York! And it's going to South Dakota and Oregon and Michigan. And then it's going to Washington D.C. to shut down the White House!

YEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAGHHHHH!!!!

I'm gonna go ahead and say this won't amount to no more than a thousand dead worldwide. If I'm right, I'll be a profit. If I'm wrong, we'll all be dead.

Have you read Dr. Brian Johnson's book "Rock & Roll Ain't Noise Pollution"? It's very interesting.

Life was such a wheel that no man could stand upon it for long. And it always, at the end, came round to the same place again.

Hmm. That assertion leaves me at a loss.

Wait a second. I thought all you guys believed in evolution? Have you never heard of "natural selection" and "survival of the fittest"? Do you realize that the Earth is becoming overpopulated and incapable of supporting the shear numbers of humans in food and water now and even getting worse in the future?

Think of how many cars would be taken off the roads in a good old pandemic. Think about Mother Earth finally being able to repair herself with less pollution and greenhouse gases being released into the atmosphere. Global warming would be a thing of the past! BE GREEN!! SUPPORT THE PIGS!!!

/The Earth use to be able to repair herself through various plagues and famines in the past...until we humans decided to play Gods...

Since we're already at 150 dead in Mexico. I'll take your bet in Post Apocaplypse Gold.

FTFA: The WHO raised its pandemic alert level to phase 4 over the deadly swine flu virus, indicating a significant increased risk of a pandemic, a global outbreak of a serious disease.

Big deal. All 'pandemic' means is how likely it is to spread. Not how serious the desease is if you catch it.

6/10. Your first paragraph was a 9/10, but you started to lose it there with the "support the pigs" and "play Gods"....
