punny names for the swine flu

The swine flu has been a hot topic in the news lately.  But the novelty of the term “swine flu” is wearing off.  And the scientific name, H1N1, doesn’t sound like much.  So some people are coming up with alternate names for it.  (I don’t know who these people are, because I received the list in a forward from Turtle Dundee, and he didn’t come up with them, either.)  Here’s some alternate names for it (beware of puns):

* Hamthrax
* Hogthrax
* Spamthrax
* Tuporkulosis
* Porklio
* Hogmumps
* The Other Yellow Fever
* Pigfluenza
* Mad Sow Disease
* Sowbola
* Sowmonella
* Spammonella
* Bacon Fever
* Whooping Oink
* Bacon Pox
* Swineal Meningitis
* Porkbelly Fever

There you go.  If you enjoy puns, this probably made your day.  If you don’t like puns, I’m kinda surprised you’re still reading.  🙂  Or maybe you already quit reading.  I did.
