Annie Wagner wants to die of bird flu

Posted by on November 14 at 11:09 AM

Not that you care, but there are a lot of people in the city who, when Annie was writing her poison-penned theater reviews (she’s since moved on to steering the film section), wanted her to die. Well, she’s just announced that she wants to die of the bird flu.

Some background on Annie: She’s obsessed by dying in a way connected to historical events — death by earthquake, death by al Queda, death by bird flu. Her exact quote, uttered two minutes ago: “I want to die of the bird flu. But I want people to call it the avian flu.”

If you have avian flu, please give it to her.
