Whiskey for my men!

Um, so I can't stop laughing about this one. According to YahooNews, Russian soccer fans have been told to drink whiskey on their trip to Wales for next month's World Cup qualifier to ward off the H1N1 swine flu virus. This is not a joke. Said VOB head Aleksandr Shprygin:

"We urge our fans to drink a lot of Welsh whiskey as a form of disinfection. That should cure all symptoms of the disease."

Russians are UNBELIEVABLY misinformed about EVERYTHING! Why would people in charge encourage their citizens to get hammered and risk swine flu infection?! Oh wait there's a crazy reason for that, too. Said spokesman:

"We don't want our team to be without any support for such an important match so we urge our fans to go to Wales despite the health warning."

Do soccer fans need encouragement to drink?
