Pick your brackets and put down your money!We now have brewing an epic battle that will determine the relative importance of three different groups: Jews, Muslims and Mexicans.You see, in the Hierarchy of Multiculturalism, when the interests of different identity groups conflict, the arbiters of political correctness must decide which group has the most victim cred. Thatâ€™s how such disputes are settled: to the victim go the spoils.Todayâ€™s battle involves the name of the influenza virus thatâ€™s currently causing worldwide panic. â€?Swine flu.â€?

How insensitive of you!The term â€?swine fluâ€? is apparently offensive to both Muslims and Jews, a pretty impressive bank-shot of an insult if you ask me.So to alleviate this grave injustice of nomenclature, an Israeli health official proposes renaming the virus â€?Mexican flu.â€?[Naming the Swine Flu: a Battle of P.C.
