Everything I Like Causes Cancer

Where we've been convinced to write a new post on Dec. 2. Stay tuned!

The very first time I saw the swine flu's official name in print my brain registered
it as "heiney" and it made me laugh really hard.

I've been calling it The Heiney Flu ever since.

I can't be the only person on Earth who read it this way
but with this very blog post I am kicking off the official movement to rename it.

Help me spread the word!

But wash your hands first.

I am going to ask everyone in a conference call tomorrow if they have had the heiney shot in their heiney yet!

The Heiney's really got people down lately. I hear it's a big one this time around.

From what I understand, people are face down in the Heiney before they ever realize what hit 'em.

The Heiney's big, but together, I think we can lick it.

Surge said...

I'll help lick it
lmfao.
Sass's comment owns.

Classic!!!

I too, have not been calling it "H-one-N-one".

I've got a thing for seeing words like that, which is why I'm trying to change the "NADMS" at work, because all's I see is "NADS" and I say, "GO NADS"!

I had simply assumed it was a heiney flu, that's why I wear a mask on my ass.

Great. Now I have to worry about catching more than just syphilis from the toilet seat?

erin said...

The first thing I think of when I see the word 'heine' is 'heineken' so from now on the swine flu will be known as the beer flu. That's not a stretch, is it?

Pig's Bum!!!

Hahhahahahahahhahaha

That strain of flu causes anal blindness.

You just can't see your ass going to work.

Good luck in your quest! Your idea sounds better than N1H1 virus.

Sandy said...

Heiney flu is what I read it as too. :)

Jay Ferris said...

I work in a hospital, and the risk management guys have been calling it that for weeks now. Sorry!

Nanodance said...

I'm going to spread the hell out of this. (The name, not the flu itself.) And, as far as I am concerned, you are the first to think of this. Don't pay any attention to those people who are trying to steal it from you.

I am so going to be laughing my ass off in my respiratory therapy class when H1N1 comes up from now on.

Son of a Thomas said...

A guy I know says he has the
H-0-M-0 virsus.

I think it has something to do with heiney.
