This week I've had to do a lot of coverage on the ubiquitous swine flu. I interviewed a doctor about trends and patterns in the spread of the virus.
This doctor is a chinese national and has a rather strong accent. I asked him why swine flu was such a concern. His response? "Well, the fru is the fru. All fru is bad."
Believe me, all my powers of self-control were in full use as I struggled not to laugh every time he called it the "fru."
