Swine flu, how to spread it effectively....

So, who can tell me the difference between a swine flu party and an ordinary day at work or school when someone is known to have gone down with it.

Surely deliberately carrying as normal, albeit with rather more handwashing, is a guarantee that it will spread through the population.

So shall we rename party conferences swine flu party conferences?? It is well known that the conference cold is passed most effectively round the country by the MPs and others meeting together then going back to their constituencies.

Surely a party indicates light snacks, as suggested in this thread. The rest is just going about your daily business

A swine flu party would be a bunch of parents taking their children to another child's house in the full knowledge that child was sick and encouraging their kids to touch the child.

Unless MPs intend to attend part conferences after being diagnosed with swine flu, and then the other MPs intend to knowingly embrace them, I do not see the parallel. Beleive me most MPs would take any excuse to avoid their party conference - swine flu would be the perfect opt out.

I mean it the other way, going around as usual means running the risk of catching it.

So someone saying that a flu party is a bad idea is missing the point that keeping schools and offices open as usual, even when someone has it, is a way of achieving a similar result.

I have imported some Mexican pigs (with sombreros) and am procreating with them as I type. I heard this is the most effective way to spread the disease.

(PS. Will do interviews for copy-hungry DM journalists.)
