One Flu Over The Cuckoo's Nest

Fourteen more people in Turkey have tested positive for bird flu. So far all the cases appear to have been contracted directly from poultry rather than from another human, which is good news. Even so, the fact that the disease has now been confirmed in Europe is an ominous sign, and migratory birds are suspected to be the culprit.

Damn!! If only those birds hadn't been intelligently designed to migrate, none of this would be happening!

Panic also appears to be spreading among the populace. Turks throughout the country have been flocking (flocking, get it? HA HA!) to hospitals concerned that they may be sick with the deadly disease.
