How does swine flu spread?

Influenza viruses can be directly transmitted from pigs to people and from people to pigs. Human infection with swine flu viruses are most likely to occur when people are in close proximity to infected pigs, such as in pig barns and livestock exhibits at fairs.

Swine flu: FAQ

Transmission
Sometimes, humans and animals can pass strains of flu back and forth to one another through direct close contact.

You two obviously saw the edited version of the movie.
For propriety's sake, it's best to let this one drop.

In a local newspaper this morning there was an article about people that did not feel well staying away from the swine at the state fair.

For all the nervous talk about people contracting swine flu from eating pork, the real-world risk is from people passing the virus to young pigs.

Got fitted for my N95 mask today. Looks like these and is mighty uncomfortable. Fitting procedure is quite technical and involves computer calculation of leaks doing different activities.

Pretty sophisticated! It looks as uncomfortable as you said it is. At least you have it if/when you need it.
