America fears Spanish flu

by Diogenes

The United States has been warned by a moody finch that it risks being infected by a dangerous Spanish flu, which increases the cost of borrowing in the market. Liberal America now fears the rising cost of basic foodstuffs, such as organic hummus and tapenade. President Obama has promised to do all he can to keep the dinner parties on New York’s Upper East Side fully operational. The Spanish flu has been growing in intensity for a few weeks already, but pathologists in Brussels believe the flu was transmitted from Italy, which caught it while holidaying on the Greek island of Santorini. It seems the flu thrives in warm climates that were once part of Ancient Rome.
