10/4/09 - Swine Flu Can Be Fun!


Is it me or is everyone freaking out about swine flu just a little too much? Don't more kids die from peanut allergies? And speaking of peanut allergies, when did the peanut become so deadly? I don't remember peanut allergies when I was a kid. We even did school projects with peanut butter. I think there's something weird going on either with the processing of peanuts or with our vaccinations. I think the peanut people are getting together with the gluten and lactose intolerance people and planning to take over the world from inside our bodies. I bet the real cure for swine flu is a nice thick peanut butter sandwich on gluten enriched white bread with a tall glass of milk.

  1. Do you realize this has a different punchline than the one on your website?

  2. Regarding you peanut allergy question, I remember reading a couple of years ago about a theory to that. The theory was that Soy formula was to blame, but not by ingestion. The theory was that if soy formula was spilled on an infant that had an open wound (scratch or whatever)the soy formula would enter the system and trigger an immune response. Apparently soy and peanuts have similar proteins.

    Don't remember the source and don't know if it is true. Interesting nevertheless.

  3. I heard a theory that peanut allergies weren't identified as much before and that children died of them before it could be.

  4. Don't quite understand the fumigated reference as that would do nothing to prevent the spread of any virus.

  6. Wow! That's a crazy theory! Spilled soy formula on a baby triggering peanut allergies? That's like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles getting dosed with the radioactive goo that gave Daredevil his super powers. I think they're related.
