Beware of Bird Droppings!

I laughed for a good 5 minutes after seeing Emad Hajjaj’s latest caricature on the bird flu. I can’t translate it because it wouldn’t make sense (or do it justice) and I suppose only Jordanians can really appreciate the humor. It made me nostalgic to say the least. This reminded me of many years back when the mad cow disease was still a ‘new thing’ and when someone bought a British chocolate bar (think milk) you’d get similar crazy reactions (mostly from hungry school kids).

So if you don’t want to have people running in all directions as you walk down the street these days…beware of bird droppings!


  • If you don’t kiss chickens, you’ll probably be okay.

    From BreitbartNews, a month or so ago: “…Sumeyya Mamuk considered the chickens in her backyard to be beloved pets. The 8-year-old girl fed them, petted them and took care of them. When they started to get sick and die, she hugged them and tenderly kissed them goodbye. The next morning, her face and eyes were swollen and she had a high fever. Her father took her to a hospital, and five days later she was confirmed to have the deadly H5N1 strain of bird flu…”

    The potential of pandemic is always there — but I don’t think it’s time to be concerned, yet. (Except, possibly, about the pandemic of idiocy in the press.)

  • Lool I just saw that on the website! I started reading the comments from right to left, and I didn’t get the point till I reached Abu-mahjoob’s comment 😀
