Swine Flu Sounds Better

From the 'Words Mean Things Dept.'

In the Oval Office last night as Health and Human Service Secretary Kathleen Sebelius was sworn in, President Obama said, "we wanted to swear her in right away because we've got a significant public health challenge that requires her immediate attention, and that is the H1N1 flu outbreak."


H1N1 sounds more like an obscure droid from the Star Wars movies.

Better names for the flu strain can be found at Protein Wisdom. Best name so far? ManBirdPig Flu.
