This is a case where I thought it was much funnier to use “pig lung” in place of “swine flu.”Â However, how many people could I assume would be completely lost by this substitution?Â Pig lung is funnier, but it isn’t very funny if half the audience is completely lost.Â We do that enough already with other strips.

HOBO: Anyone? Hello? If you don't respond I might mistake you for dead!
HOBO: ...and how was I supposed to know Swine Flu was that serious on campus?
