If these kids would just keep their hands off each other, Georgetown might be saved.

Georgetown University is awash in swine flu symptoms, with 250 possible cases reported since the beginning of the school year as of Monday, according to an e-mail Dr. James Welsh, the assistant vice president for student health, sent to Vox Populi.

That's up from an estimate of 150 possible cases from the week before. So either Welsh had low-balled the figure then or the virus is spreading quickly through the campus.

And the 250 figure only takes in account students who have called the H1N1 hotline or gone to the Student Health Center to receive treatment, so the actual number could be higher.

Naturally, it's only a matter of time before we're forced to quarantine all of Georgetown and George Washington universities to contain the pandemic that will surely destroy us all.

Have you seen these kids? Never cleaning themselves at all. Don't swim in disease with them!
