I used to wonder how there could be so many people who were so stupid they could screw up a simple matter like casting a ballot.

Now I know.

swine flu has absolutely NOTHING to do with pigs. In fact it's an inaccurate name for the virus.

I'm going to eat bacon, ham, and Spam as much as I ever did.

The only good thing to come out of some people's stupidity is that the price of pork may drop.

Good for me I mean, certainly not good for pork producers.
