Washington, DC – World leaders met at the White House today to address the critical issue of our time.
“The time for debate is over,” warned President Obama. “An appropriate name for the current pandemic virus must be found.”
The World Health Organization has thus far been unable to find a politically correct name for this dangerous strain of influenza. The original designation, Swine Flu, was deemed offensive to the Jewish community, and the second attempt, Mexican Flu, immediately angered the Mexican “Government”. The third and little known suggestion, Mexico Shitty, never made it through the testing process. Even the seemingly generic title H1N1 is now apparently straining human/cyborg relations. The ACME line of H1N1 house droids, a distant cousin of the R2 unit, are outraged that their name is being used in such a fashion.
One H1N1 unit had this to say, “001011001101010, bitches!”
In an effort to smooth over this increasingly tense situation, the World Health Organization is suggesting that H1N1 be renamed one last time.
“After much debate,” said Obama. “I am happy to announce that the flu will from hence forth be known as Piggy Pox.”
In a preemptive move, Obama also suggested that Miss. Piggy, “Zip it.”
