Was that another chicken joke?

...Because nothing says "we're all going to die in a flu pandemic!" like stupid puns:

The flap over bird flu shouldn't turn us into headless chickens

Playing Chicken With Bird Flu

Disease takes wing

On a wing and a prayer

A Bird in The Head

A Killer Takes Wing

Flying the Coop for New Vaccine Technology

Are you a sitting duck for bird flu?

But my favorite headline on the topic is this one:

Andy Williams May Set Trend Amid Bird Flu

There's no pun, and not because it says anything worthwhile about bird flu, but for one reason only: I'd have sworn Andy Williams was dead. (If my suspicions were correct and you actually were dead, Andy, I have two words for you: Welcome back!)

My challenge for all (three) of you: Come up with the best/worst bird flu pun headline you can think of. First prize: A travel-size package of Kleenex.

1. Birdbrain notions about Bird Flu Scares Millions
2. Avian Water? No thanks, Not that thirsty.
3. Thank God, it's not monkey pox!

In the summertime when all the trees and leaves are green
And the bird has flu, i'll be blue
'cause you don't want my love
