Swine Flu, The CDC, and Housekeeping Hints

So, the CDC has a list of hints on dealing with swine flu. Mostly, they were run-of-the-mill flu instructions, but one of them rocked my world:

Eating utensils should be washed either in a dishwasher or by hand with
water and soap.


Woah. I mean Woah. Now I KNOW this is a serious illness, because they're telling us to WASH OUR DISHES. And here I thought you could just lick them clean and use them again.

Hmmm.... Maybe I'll try that one tonight after dinner. "Sorry, honey. I'm going to bail on the dishes tonight. After all, the CDC says we don't have to wash them unless we have the swine flu."

Sometimes I wonder if government bureaucrats even live on the same planet as the rest of us.....
