Best thing about man flu: it now gives us a new one to chuck at the missus. She: I just feel terrible. He: You do look really dreadful; I reckon it’s gotta be man flu.
Worst thing: In my humble anecdotal experience, as a reaction to the “man flu” jibe, blokes are starting to underplay their colds and flus. Why is that a problem? Men, the half of the species that pretends they’re not sick even when they are, to the point where they drop dead of something eminently curable because they refused to go to the doctor and hoped it would go away, now have another reason to “downplay” their illnesses. Good one, girls.
