Deadly bird flu spreads to Germany, Austria, Iran

Time to take Polly out back and put one in his head.

Three more countries said on Tuesday they had detected cases of deadly bird flu in wild swans, with Germany, Iran and Austria the latest to find the virus that has killed 91 people worldwide.

Stay away from those wild swans, you don't know where they been. So as the bird flu runs rampant across the globe I'm left to wonder if I have enough Dayquil. 91 people worldwide huh? Scary stuff. Don't more people die everyday from marshmellow-related injuries?

Experts had said it was only a matter of time before the H5N1 strain dangerous to humans broke out in Iran, a wintering place for wildfowl that may be carriers. Neighboring Iraq, Azerbaijan and Turkey had already reported outbreaks.

Think they blame Allah being unhappy about all the cartoon protests or something? Probably not. I have a feeling this is all Israel's fault, and the US of course because we build birds or something.
