Title: " Four Pigs Of The Apocalypse " Swine Flu flew. Global Pandemic

Disclaimer: It is not my intention to make light of what may or may not be a very serious disease. My comentary is aimed at the sensationalized coverage by the TV. news media. For hundreds of years artists and writers have used their art to comment on current events. For example: the childrens nursery rhyme, "Ring Around The Rosy", was about people falling down dead from the black plague.

Comment:: For your consideration. A 2009 Swine Flu commemorative jug. The Four Pigs Of The Apocalypse are breaking out and going viral in all corners of the globe. The jug is emblazoned with the sensational headlines of the day as well as other flu related graffiti.
Pig discrimination has raised it's ugly head so they renamed Swine Flu to H1N1. The Tv. News has a new favorite word...PANDEMIC. We have learned that The W.H.O is not an old rock band but is The World Health Organization. News anchors seem almost gleeful while reporting the latest flu headlines.
"Global Pandemic." "Mexico Shuts Down." "Egypt To Slaughter All Swine."
"New Cases Everywhere." "W.H.O Declares An Epidemic." On and on it goes. If the flu is as bad as the news coverage
we are in trouble.
