This helpful video gives you free advice on detecting symptoms of the “swine flu,” and gives you some survival tips for handling the pandemic. Naturally it’s one of my videos, and it’s meant as humor.

The swine flu, of course, isn’t funny. But the paranoia, hysteria and panick behavior is fair game.
In the next week, we’ll see non-stop media coverage of the pig virus, and every network will have cool graphics and visually-compelling stories. Then by Friday we’ll be sick of the news, and it will give way to humor (after all, “comedy is tragedy plus time”). I’m just getting a jump start, you see.
