Swine Flu Prevention Fail

What do you mean people are dying of the flu? What do you mean more people will die in car accidents?
How can I be protected from the evil swine flu?

Whatever you do, don’t wear gloves and don’t wash your hands with warm water and mild soap. Just wear this expensive hood and mask combo.

This photo came up on Yahoo earlier today and had me laughing.

The news tonight never mentioned washing hands with soap and water or covering your mouth when you cough.
Nothing about staying home when you’re sick, wiping your nose with a tissue and cleaning door knobs and other surfaces often.

Could they have mentioned washing your pillowcase often when sick? What about avoiding the ER when not sick?

No, let’s buy some cool stuff we can use to look really cool.

FAIL!
