Utter Splutter

The Final Nail In His Coughin'

A coughing Italian judge cleared a panicking courtroom when he told lawyers: "I've just got back from Mexico." More than 30 attorneys in Rome told Judge Giovanni Barese they were boycotting the court and adjourning their cases because of fear of swine flu. One lawyer said: "I've never seen so many lawyers agree on anything in court so quickly."

FOOTNOTE: Objection upheld.

This little piggy went to Rome
Then all the little piggies went crying NO SWINE FLU, flying all the way home

The hygienist at my dentist's office went on 7 day vacation a few weeks ago. She sent out a FB message: "MEXICO!"

My husband went to get his teeth cleaned last week and another hygienist was there in her place. They would not allow the traveller to work.

I think my husband was relieved. I know I was.

Well that's one way to clear the courtroom. Far more effective than a gavel ever could be!

My husband travels quite a bit. A co-worker was sent on a trip to Mexico, luckily hubby wasn't, and the co-worker caught the SWINE FLU! He told us, (over the phone), that he's never been that sick in his life. There was much pain involved, it seems. So, if you find yourself around somebody that has recently returned from Mexico, run like those lawyers did. RUN FORREST RUN!
