2007 - Chinese year of the Chicken - Bird Flu Pandemic
2008 - Chinese year of the Horse - Equine Influenza
2009 - Chinese year of the Pig - Swine Flu Pandemic
Has any one else noticed this???
And it gets worse because next year......
2010 - Chinese year of the C o c k - what could possibly go wrong?
It's all fun and games until someone gets hurt - then it's bloody hilarious!
