Sainsbury's online now sell a potion named Manflu just for the suffering men that surround us.
I see no evidence of any pharmacologically active ingredient.
(No linky because I think these only work when logged in.)

That's because Manflu is beyond known science.

Manflu is certainly a strange and mysterious illness...  :P

Here are some of the symptoms, although not all are known!

Isn't it actually derived from Manchester?  My sister got bad bronchitis when we lived there in the late 1940s.  West Nile Virus, Guinea Worm, Manflu.

Manflu is partly a mental health disorder and needs to be treated with more respect.  Discuss  :facepalm:

Certainly it's all in the mind, but to treat it you'd have to medicate everyone but the poor guy who's got the flu.

Self medicating with booze wont help....Or will it?
