REBRANDED IN ISRAEL: Swine Flu to be Called “Mexican Flu”

475_pig_090424

Israel is on high alert as the first suspected cases of Swine Flu begin to appear in the Jewish nation. But ever mindful of religious law, Deputy Health Minister Yakov Litzman has asked that Israelis call the affliction “Mexican Flu” rather than “Swine Flu”.

How Kosher!

Minister Litzman — an ultra-Orthodox Jew — said Israel is prepared to battle the virus if it strikes the nation to its core.

No word on whether potential “Shellfish flu” outbreaks are also under threat of renaming.

  2. I may never eat pork again after reading the Rolling Stone article. I guess some humans (and their companies) will never rise above common decency. These pig factories have been polluting for years but as long as they line the politicians pockets they can do as they please. Now we have exported their stupidity.
