Nicknames for swine flu?

 I was just thinking about some of the different nicknames I've heard for swine flu lately.
In English, my favourites so far are "piggy sniffles" and "hamthrax".

In Norwegian I like the word "baconpest" (bacon plague) or "skinkesyke" (ham sickness, but more fun with alliteration :) ).

Does anyone have any other good suggestions? Entries from any language welcome :)
