Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Friday, May 01, 2021

Even before the porkish community prompted a renaming, the spread of the dreaded “swine flu” brought to my mind my old “Suicide Swine” post, with the accompanying pig self-slicing image.

Frankly, I think the CDC et al missed the boat. They could have repurposed this cheerfully vintage sausage ad placard into some sort of health-crisis warning. Just so long as they stayed away from the French-to-English ad copy translation.

Unfortunately, I don’t have any comparable H1N1 virus imagery to share. Probably wouldn’t be nearly as festive.
