    Very funny!! Gosh I did not think of the swine flu connection. Hope no one is offended.

    I will post the answers today as this was kind of a tongue in cheek trivis quiz. I just could not stop myself from posting this as it was so funny and would fit in with the type of humour people seem to favor on this board.

    LOL!!
