H5N1-3116

Worker #3116: But isn't the bird flu just a really bad case of the flu?
Herb #3116: Basically. It's a strain of influenza.
Worker #3116: So, then, won't it just kill old people and babies?
Herb #3116: Well, that's the strange thing. Historically, pandemic flus kill primarily healthy young people who are in their 20s and 30s.
Worker #3116: So what you're telling me is that I'm going to die.
Herb #3116: Yes.
Worker #3116: Oh well. Ha ha.
Herb #3116: Ha ha.
Mom #3116: That's not funny.
Worker #3116: Yes it is.
Mom #3116: ...
Worker #3116: For now.
Mom #3116: ...
Worker #3116: It won't be come springtime.
Mom #3116: ...
Worker #3116: When I have passed on.
