Swine Flu - the real symptoms


I don't know about any of you out there but I'm getting fed up with swine flu. If anyone as much as sneezes over some spilled pepper a know-all pops up and diagnoses swine flu. Mind you I did manage to get the shopping done in double quick time the other week. Colin sneezed so I shouted, 'He's been to Mexico,' and the aisle cleared quicker than if I'd have shouted 'Fire!' I was able to get to the Calippos, no problem. (I'm addicted)
So to help you all recognise the one foolproof symptom I've taken this photo. If you've really got swine flu then your trotters go green.

  1. Just read an interesting headline "Swine Flu Blamed For Blocked Sewers" I'd resolved not to read any more scare stories about swine flu but I couldn't resist!

    Apparently its because people are using hand wipes and baby wipes and flushing them down the loo because the NHS advises keeping hands clean . . . whatever happened to good ole fashioned soap and water!

    Are those little green trotters yours?

  4. What pretty feet - I wouldn't dare post a pic of mine as they're vile.

    This swine flu business is getting a bit much - I sometimes work in a local surgery and the place is plastered in signs advising everyone to go home and use the telephone if they suspect they may have the slightest hint of a symptom. And at the opticians today, they'd taken all the magazines away 'because of swine flue' and all the while, two of the opticians were sneezing with abandon all over the place.

  5. Thanks Suzanne but the picture is blurred, deliberately.
    Don't worry about swine flu. We should have all been dead of bird flu by now, and before that we were all going to die of Aids. There'll be something else in a few years' time. Just say 'Bless you' when someone sneezes near you adn you'll stay safe. Trust me. I'm a witch!

  6. I bet the LSO painted your toes didn't he?
    Have you noticed that when people sneeze it's just as easy to say 'Swine flu' as 'Bless you', this also stops the torrent of excuses; I've a summer cold, Hayfever is terrible for me this time of year and Oops too much pepper!

  7. Who are you Anonymous? How do you know my secrets? How do you know I can't reach my own toe-nails? I have no money if you are thinking of blackmail. I've spent all my winnings.

  9. Naughty Anonymous is my daughter. Just letting everyone know in case they all want the LSO to come around and paint toenails or whatever!

  10. Okay, so in here in the Welsh Borders, Swine Flu hasn't affected me until yesterday. I walked into Staples in Telford and there were alcohol rubs by the entrance! I had to wipe my green nail varish off!
