What to make of this swine flu panic? Our Man's mother-in-law is ready to barricade the entrance hall and ban any pork byproducts from Our Man's fridge (JESUS CHRIST, NOT THE PORK SCRATCHINGS, WOMAN!) but then, she was also looking out the window for a glimpse of Kim Jong Il's big Ding Dong II rocket the other week. And it should also be noted, she was attacked by a stuffed polar bear in Our Man's garden the other day, but that's a story for another blog entirely.
Well, why not take a peek at the chalk board on the right for a completely unrepresentative round-up of the flu stories making the rounds? Should we panic? No, of course not. The government will protect us! Why, Mr Aso has asked a high ranking bureaucrat to draw up some policies forthwith to save us all. We're still waiting for his recommendations. (Our Man would have linked to the report which he read in the Japan Times the other day about this, but he is finding it hard to concen... oink, oink, oink, oink!!!!!!!!!
