Inadvertently funny

I was listening to the news on the radio in Seattle, and the commentator reported that two people in Israel have been hospitalized with swine flu, "or as the Israeli government has renamed it, the Mexican flu, as they're calling it there to avoid offending Muslims and Jews who avoid pork."

Added the commentator, in a rather clipped voice, a postscript that I suspect was not scripted, "There is no record of how the Mexicans feel about this."
