H1N1, you say? A ridiculous name:
What if this thing takes off and wipes out all of mankind? How embarrassing would that be when intergalactic lifeforms stumble on a pig-filled earth and read that it was a little ol’ H1N1 that kicked our humanoid butts? No, if there’s even the slightest chance of some virus killing us all, it should have a cool name that sends chills down your spine; like Black Death, Human Plague, or Obama’s Mama.
April being over and done with, I propose “Puerco de Mayo.” Let the intergalactic lifeforms figure it out for themselves, if they’re so damn smart.
