Now that the World Health Organization has declared the swine flu outbreak “a pandemic,” I’m going to predict that PETA’s “flu prevention” mask will sneak past blinged-out cell phones as the must-have accessory this summer. I have a feeling that fashionistas and health officials all over the world will soon agree with me.
Despite denials issued by big pig farms and the change in the name of the illness, funnyman Jim Carrey hit the nail right on the head when he said, “There wouldn’t be a swine flu if we treated the pigs better!”
PETA’s swine flu mask will serve as a reminder of that.
