Results from WashPost Swine Flu Naming Contest!

June 20, 2009  ·  Michael Fumento  ·  Weblog

The Washington Post has named winners in its swine flu naming contest that seem to suggest a certain skepticism about the WHO labeling it a pandemic - a well-founded skepticism, as I've written. Among the winners:

  • "CNN Flu"
  • "Fox News Flu"
  • "NewFlu" because it will "disappear as quickly as New Coke," and can be "recycled as needed."
  • "Ponzi Flu," because it "starts with just a few, increases until widespread," and then everyone realizes "nothing is there."
  • "Y2K Flu," because "It's the same hype and senseless waste of money. Twice."

My, my! Whom can not trust the WHO?
