Swine Flu (H1N1)



Seems like everything you hear now is Swine Flu and then arguments on whether you should call it the Swine Flue or H1N1 virus, of course you hear about every combination and order of H1N1, N1H1, etc. There has been a lot of talk about calling it something else, and people have come up with everything from "The Mexican Flu", "North American Flu" to "The Other White Meat Flu". To help remember the order of the letters in the virus strain name and something that people could probably remember, maybe we'll just call it the "Hell No Flu". It helps you remember the order of the letters in H1N1, and I think people can relate, "Hell No", I don't want it.
