I didn’t even have the strength to laugh this morning when I found out that a town about 6 miles away from here has now gone public with a bird flu epidemic.

It is ringed with warning signs.

My mind just conjured up a picture of all the birds queuing before each of the signs – 2 metres apart – asking one another if it’s safe to fly over the place.

Two more days until Christmas – my bet is on Mad Cow Disease first and then Swine Flu on Xmas Eve. That’ll have covered most of the population, wild and domesticated.

Daft as…!
