Wel, that could be next.

Reason for concern about Avian flu was becasue it could mix in animals other than birds and transmit to humans. Specificly they were worried aobut pigs which can catch both Avian and Human strains and possibly act as a natural pot for the two to mix into something new. When Asia had that bad outbreak this was a real concern because many farmers in Asia apparently keep pigs and chickens together.

Pig flu is a bit worse since it already is transmitable to humans and it has proven to be transmitable between humans. In fact new studies show that the strain currently going around is a mild form of the old 1918 Spanish influenza. So far it's not bad. Mild flu symptoms not unlike what you see with any other flu. With summer approaching though it's probably going to die out on it's own they say.

Yeah but one day Nature will get so pissed off they'll summon giant walking weapons and then we're all ****ed unless a team of misfits with their talking dog and giant toy cat on an airship can save us from the effeminate mismatched single wing man and his lovecraftian extraterrestrial mother.
