Uh Oh

Bad thing.

In the first known case of what may be transmission of the Ebola virus from a pig to a human, a pig handler in the Philippines has tested positive for a strain of the virus, world health officials and the Philippine government announced Friday.

But the strain — Ebola Reston — is not known to be dangerous to humans, and the worker, who was infected at least six months ago, is healthy, officials said.

Hide your pigs. No, wait. Hide your children. Unless you don't like them, then just run up into the hills. We'll tell you when it's safe to come out.

Dear Ebola, please don't become airborne.

Thank you, Stop All Monsters.
