Something in the Water

I've got a question for you all... is there a reason, other than misinformedness, I mean... Is there a reason I keep hearing the bird flu written as Evian Flu? As in not Avian.

I did a search for Evian Flu, and it asked me (ever so kindly, I love Google, they're very kind with their corrections and never make me feel like a dumbass) "Did you mean Avian Flu?", which I take to mean that Evian Flu isn't the correct.. um.. name. And yet, when I looked beyond the polite inquery, I saw that I wasn't making it up, apparently everyone seems to be very afraid of the flu contained in Evian.

Like I said, I don't want to appear to be an ass, and I certainly don't want people to be embarassed if they happen to have misheard themselves.. but What The Fuck?

You must not have heard the same hour-long discussion about vaccinating the chickens in Viet Nam that I did. And that's all I gotta say about that.

I have not heard anything about "Evian Flu" but I have heard of Avian Flu. Avian is some form of bird I think. Aviation is airplanes so I guess Avian is birds or flight or something.

But who am I to know?
