Swine Time

I'm afraid we've all come down with the Swine Flu! (insert gasp here)

I was the first one to get it. Without regard to anyone but myself, I neglected to wash my hands and then subsequently gave Anthony a hug. Obviously the virus transferred to him. Being the irresponsible twits that we are, we let him go to school anyway. He goes to the same grade school as his younger brother Matthew and even though they are in completely different classrooms, they use the same cafeteria at different times during the day. Matthew must have contracted the virus there. While having lunch, Matthew sneezed and forgot to cover his mouth. When Lisa picked him up a few hours later he high fived her and thereby transferred the virus yet again.

The CDC, WHO and a host of other acronym based agencies should be at our door any minute.

I took a picture of us so you can see what we look like now the we are all infected.

Should you notice any swelling of your snout, please seek medical attention immediately!!!

LOL...Oink! Damn..now I have it too.

gabrielle said...

You didn't wash your hands. Oink!

Please. Don’t call it swine flu. With all due respect, it has a scientific moniker, H1N1 Which is so much more reassuring, don’t you think?

Nessa said...

I thought you got swine flu from eating pork ribs.

Great joke. Love the picture.

BJ Roan said...

You are truly ba-a-ck! ;) I heard the swine flu, no, excuse me, H1N1, started because some little girl kissed a pig. I think our government should ban all pig kissing.

Dana said...

I've been snoinking all week! Do you think this can be transmitted cyberly?

Sandee said...

You crack me up Jeff. Bwahahahahaha.

Have a terrific weekend. :)

Jeff B said...

Hammer- I should have put a warning on to stay at least five feet away from the screen at all times.

Gabrielle- Sorry to have softened it so. You are right, H1N1 does have a much more ominous tone about it.

Nessa- Shssssshhh, don't say that out loud or they'll start pulling ribs off the store shelves.

BJ- Anytime you use the words government and pigs in the same sentence, you leave so many opportunities for humor.

Dana- As I mentioned to Hammer, stay at least five feet away from the screen at all times and you should be fine.

Sandee- I just gotta be me.

Thom said...

OMG...before I got to that picture I was so worried for you and your family and then...I fell off my chair in laughter...Too funny and well done :)

buffalodick said...

If you could patent a surgical mask that looked like that, you wouldn't know where to hide all the money!

Sandi McBride said...

Snort snort...yep, definitely the Swine Flu...lol...wow, needed a good laugh...glad you aren't REALLY sick!
Sandi

Akelamalu said...

Bond said...

bwahahahahahahahaha

Ron said...

bwhahahahahahahahahaha!

YOU KILL ME MAN!!!!

This was a RIOT!!!

Ok...did you make those from an egg carton? I need to try that at work tomorrow! I'm sure it'll bring me lots of PIG sales!

hahahahahahahaha!

Jeff B said...

Thom- All's well here. The only thing we're suffering from is excessive laughter.

Buffalo- I think you may be on to something with that idea.

Sandi- Glad to bring a smile to your face.

Akelamalu- Are you sure that wasn't squealing?

Bond- We will. Going to cook some pork chops on the smoker tonight. You might say we're going to pig out!

Ron- Yep, those are egg carton creations. Cheap and easy to make. You can put a hole on either side of them and use string tied around your head if you want them to stay on for any length of time.

Cath said...

I was so worried for you all.

I rang the swine flu hotline...

...but all I got was crackling.

(Sorry)
Please come on over so you'll know me next time I visit.

Gene Bach said...

Just in case, dontchaknow....

Jeff B said...

Cath- Nice one. Thanks for the heads up about your new place.

Gene- IT'S EVERYWHERE. . .RUN. . .RUN FOR THE HILLS!!!

Travis- It's a good look for us, yes?

Lu- Good to see you again.

Mel- No worries, all safe and sound here.

Hey, since you don't do the pork thing, does that mean you are immune to this virus?

Bwahahahaha

bettygram said...

That picture was well worth the time you had to take to make the snouts.

jennifer said...

Even with snouts, you have a beautiful family!

Have an oinking good weekend.

katherine. said...

The Teamster said...

in some countries, the pig is considered sacred...i don't know or care which ones...just thought i'd throw that in...watch out for pig worshiping terrorists...

Matt-Man said...

Ha...Very Good Jeff. Cheers !!

Jeff B said...

Bettygram- I was laughing the whole time I was making them, so it was a win-win I guess.

Jennifer- I'm kind of partial to them too. Thanks

Katherine- Readily available at any grocery store.

Teamster- Thank you for the Cliff Clavin moment.

Matt- Thought you might enjoy that one. Thanks

Dr.John said...

I think you all got it from the internet. You need new virus software

nitebyrd said...

I hope by this time, you all are feeling much better and have lost the horrible "swine flu probiscus!"

Raven said...

This is a lesson to others, I guess... A sad story indeed and it made me laugh out loud. I love the photo. Thanks for the giggle.

Desert Songbird said...

The snout fits you perfectly, Jeff. So becoming on you.

*grin*

Jeff B said...

Dr John- Ha, good one!

Nitebyrd- Yep, we're all doing just fine and not just swine.

Raven- Always glad to provide a needed giggle.

Songbird- Why thanks. . . I think
