Another public service announcement, this one from Dr. Doom† via his mother:
As long as swine flu is a concern,‡ we should wash our hands after petting a pig.§
†FOOTNOTE (crossed): Via his mother - at book club last night.
‡FOOTNOTE (double-crossed): We all agreed that *always* washing your hands after petting a pig, swine flu notwithstanding, might be a better credo.
§FOOTNOTE (swerved): He said nothing at all about licking a pig.
