FLU TIPS: don’t fall into Helena Christensen’s arms. Or ask Salman Rushdie to banter.

New York magazine has been asking celebrities how they are warding off swine flu. To select a couple of responses at random (or, more accurately, quote the only two interviewees I’ve heard of):

Helena Christensen

“I’ve been coughing in my arm, and washing my hands a lot. But I haven’t stopped kissing certain people. It’s worth it.”

Salman Rushdie

“As long as there’s no Mexicans here, I think we’re all right.”

Nice one, Salman. Really got the tone right there.
