Just a note: Swine flu? c'mon!

Got to love the current illnesses name if you raise pigs.

Apparently there is just a never ending list of animals we can get sick from. I think Swine Flu has been around for awhile though, just got a bunch of news coverage right now because it killed a lot of people, 100 I think. The word 'swine' always makes me think of bacon flavored wine.

My understanding is that 1) swine don't get this flu and 2) they don't spread it to humans. It's called "swine flu" because apparently when it started it contained some swine DNA. Unfortunate name, for the swine farmers.
