The swine flu is the latest pandemic threat facing the human race. What makes it bad is it can be transferred from human to human rather than getting it from some animal. The human to human spread is the killer.
In order to protect myself, I’ve devised an early warning indicator. Catholics.
Catholics have some very bad habits. They are completely hands on. If you go to church and sit through a Catholic mass, one of the first things you have to do is shake everyone’s hand. This is called the sign of peace, and you share it with all your neighbors. Then if you live through that, when communion time comes, a Priest lays a wafer in your mouth, (with his bare hands) and offers you a drink of wine from the communal cup. (Which everyone drinks out of)
Yes, when all the Catholics start dropping dead, I’ll be heading for the mountains. Preferably mountains that don’t have any Catholic Churches in them.
