    Red face Can you catch Swine Flu from a Geocache?

    Greeting
    As a newcomer, I thought I would dip my toe in the forum waters.
    So: Adding to the general overreaction.....
    Do you think it is possible to catch Swine Flu from a Geocache?

    There's a TB called Pigalicious, a name which sounds eminently kissable, and it's in a cache called Swine Flu for Me and You. hmy:

    I'm suprised it hasn't already been found by hundreds of people.

    A bit of cheek and jowel (hugs and kisses ) OK.

    You will only catch swine flu if you ACTUALLY touch the cache container without gloves on......then and only then will you come out in rashers!!!

    My pig's lost his voice; is this a symptom of swine flu, or is he just disgruntled?
    It only takes one drink to get me drunk, but I can never remember if it was the thirteenth or fourteenth.

    Getting back to the OP's question..."can you get swine flu from a geocache", well, I heard there was a cache in Mexico that a cacher was worried about, so he phoned the cache owner......and as he is a responsible cache owner, he had his 'phone number on the container, the worried cacher phoned him..........but all he could hear was crackling..........

    Since it looks like swine flu may not be such a killer after all, I'm more worried about bird flu. I've heard it's untweetable.

    Yeah - and pigs might fly!

    Is THAT why they call it swine flu?...

    The reporter who caused mass panic when he first broke this story has apparently been given the chop!
