Old Flu - New Flu. Who Knew?

A tip o' the hat to Karen Jacobson for this sumptuous aperitif, after which, a tiny goblet of mine own:

Read carefully, this could be you......
The Next Pandemic

I went to a gathering last night, where I and other guests enjoyed copious amounts of alcohol.

I awoke this morning not feeling well, with what could be described as flu-like symptoms; headache, nausea, chills, sore eyes, etc.

From the results of some initial testing, I have unfortunately tested positive for what experts are now calling
Wine Flu.

This debilitating condition is very serious - and it appears this is not an isolated case.

Reports are flooding in from all around the country of others diagnosed with Wine Flu. To anyone that starts to exhibit the aforementioned tell-tale signs, experts are recommending a cup of tea and a bit of a lie down. One should not expose himself to fellow employees for at least 24-48 hours.

However, should your condition worsen, you should immediately hire a DVD and take some Tylenol. To ensure this Wine flu remains a minor case, refrain from consuming further amounts of alcohol and stick to Gatorade. Others are reporting a McDonald's Quarter Pounder can also help in some cases.

Wine Flu does not need to be life threatening and, if treated early, can be eradicated within a 24-48 hour period.

If you find you are complaining a lot, it may be that it has mutated into Whine Flu. This is particularly common in MEN and can quickly spread to their partners where the symptoms are detected as a serious case of eye-rolling.

Ahhhhhh.....It doth go down smoothly, nooo? And now, another. Ever so lightly, and yeah, delicate.

So what's a New Yorker's favorite wine?

"I wanna go ta Flawrida!"

ciao for now
