So there is a small epidemic of swine flu growing into a huge problem. Typically things like this are a passing trend. Swine is the new SARS.
Everyone in Mexico is sporting face masks and are going full force on hand washing. Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt are south of the boarder and I am pretty sure Spencer is the cause of the outbreak. After getting married again they most annoying beings on earth headed down to Cabo for a pre-honeymoon excursion. Don’t get too excited…they are taking precautions and wearing masks like everyone else. Heidi is working on a new video which will be an epic failure, but something to laugh at in the near future.
Speaking of morons who should be forced to wear helmets….Paris Hilton feels she is safe from the swine flu because she doesn’t eat pork. A TMZ photog caught up with Hilton and asked her if she was worried about it. She replied with:
“I don’t eat that.”
Oh come on P. You aren’t fooling anyone denying your penchant for pork. By the way, swine flu is passed from human to human and pigs don’t have to be involved. Kinda like chicken pox aren’t contracted from poultry.
Sadly Hugh Jackman won’t betting his Wolverine pimping done in Mexico. The star of the X-Men spin-off is postponing his trip thanks to the epidemic. This stand up fella recently bought coffee and breakfast pastries for 800 people who waited over night for the Arizona opening of the film. Mexico will have to wait for their surprise donuts because Jackman is concerned for everyone’s health.
“I’m a movie fan, I love movies, but they’re just movies at the end of the day — and there are other things that are way more important, such as people’s safety. It’s very tragic what’s going on down there…I’m worried for them.”
Aww…now that is some celebrity good-doing I can get behind. Well, you know me. Anything involving delicious pastries is my bag.
However, the swine flu isn’t just Mexico’s problem. The virus is starting to spread to the U.S. According to the latest reports, two men in California have died from the outbreak. At this moment a total 69 cases of swine flu have been confirmed in the states. The death toll in Mexico has climbed to over 150. Arnold Schwarzenegger has officially declared a state of emergency. New York has even reported 28 cases. A case of swine flu has also possibly come from Orlando’s Disney World. It takes 24-48 hours to confirm a case so it is unclear if it has spread to the Magical Kingdom.
There is a dose of “real” news for you. Now that you’re all scared of pigs and hungry for pastries who’s up for some donuts?
