  1. I got my Government-approved Swine Flu leaflet in the post yesterday. It never mentioned that I could simply “block swine flu”.

    Well now you know (and knowing is half the battle…)

  3. Looks like somebody beat me to the ‘block swine flu’ joke :-(

  4. I think you’re making an unfounded assumption in that it requires sentience to use social networks. I’m sure we could find quite a bit of evidence to the contrary (Ashton Kutcher, for example).

  5. Thanks to you, I now need an absorbent squeegie for my keyboard.

  6. Oh noooooooes! we’re all gonna die!

  7. Thanks for the laugh!
