Not one of your better attempts. Apart from anything else, a proper Pedants' Corner rant post would never read merely "tut".

6/10, Must Try Harder.

Err, it is supposed to be known as H1N1, no?

It has nothing to with 'swine' now. hmm

Now that is a properly pedantic post.

Although I think it's swine-origin influenza A(H1N1)...

Sweine (one of many spellings) I believe was the father of Knut (Canute), and the son of Harald Bluetooth inventor of silly little ear pieces to be worn in the car.
