This is a serious and amusing post; here let me steal the very nicely tasty jelly filling:
That’s why I’m proposing that this very serious disease be renamed ‘Spring Breaker flu,’ after the lazy, amoral, disease-ridden rich white kids who have breached our borders time and again, destroying our economy with their unsustainable leech-like lifestyles, and now, robbing us of our health. The spread of swine flu – sorry, Spring Breaker flu – can be indisputably linked to Americans returning from vacations in Mexico (1, 2, 3). And it is Americans who can afford to take vacations who deserve the blame.

“I’ve blogged for years about the spread of contagious diseases from around the world into the US as a result of uncontrolled
immigrationtrust-fund vacationers.” – Michelle Malkin
“What happens if there’s a rash of deaths in Mexico and if you’re a family in Mexico and people are dying and Americans are not, why wouldn’t you
flood this borderblame the USA’s unjust trade and economic policies that have crippled Mexico’s ability to respond to a health crisis?” – Glenn Beck
“What better way to sneak a virus into this country than to give it to
Mexicansrich white kids then spread a rumor there there are construction jobsT-Pain concerts here, and there they come.” – Neal Boortz, on the very real possibility that swine flu is a manmade virus planted by Al QaedaDane Cook

I like to say there is always one group your allowed to make fun of, teenagers. I might be mistaken, it could be we are now allowed to make fun of the rich again. Which would mean that rich teenagers is a two for one deal.
A note: Spring Breaker flu is not the same as being rich and white; the difference is that rich-white-ness doesn’t spread. Prolonged exposure to rich-white-ness leaves communities proportionally less rich, and their citizens considered further from white. Being rich and white is believed to be hereditary.
