Animal cookie-itus the silent killer
Swine flu has been in the news recently along with bird flu, mad cow, and crazy chicken. I may have just made up that last one but who would know? It got me wondering what animal illness they will come up with next to shock us into hating pets. It always seems to be news when some animal illness kills someone but the regular people flu has an estimated 63,730 annual deaths attributed to influenza and pneumonia. Was it a slow news day? Why do these stories always seem to make the front page. In other words you are more likely to be hit by a bus on your way to work than to get swine flu and die. They should do a shocking story on the upswing of people that choked to death on animal cookies and call it animal cookie-itus what the cookie company is not telling you, story at 10. I guess they are tired of talking about the recession so they decided to scare all these out of work people to death by telling them that there is a rampant case of some unknown virus sweeping the nation, and oh by the way we are rubbing it in that you don't have health insurance anymore. Ya, that should cheer people up. Perhaps next time they can show the dangers of owning puppies and how leprechauns are the reason that your bank failed. Thanks credible news sources and until next time this is Syden Insomniac good night, and good luck.
