猪八戒I was talking to my conversation partner the other day about swine flu [or is it the swine flu?], or more like she was telling me how apparently it’s getting more serious in Chicago as of late. I began thinking about how unappealing “swine flu” sounds — of course, being a potentially fatal disease, it’s not ever going to be appealing, although chlamydia cuts it pretty close. Swine flu sounds like something that would turn somebody into a bloated pig-like creature. If it was called “koala flu” or “white chocolate mousse disease,” the mental image wouldn’t be so bad. Or to help out the poor confused people, they could just rename it “wash-you-hands-and-you-won’t-get-it flu.”
