Who Needs Swine Flu?

OK, don’t anyone tell the World Health Organization for goodness sakes but an 8 year old boy from Albuquerque, New Mexico, has died from…wait for it…bubonic plague. Ewh, that’s right, them fleas have been biting again. The boy’s sister is also sick with the infectious disease. So if you get the chills, diarrhea, headaches and swollen lymph nodes chances are you either have the plague or Swine Flu.
