I doubt they'd ever ban alcohol, since most of the locals drink the stuff too

Bloody ignorant UAE Government. Swine flu has nothing whatsoever to do with pork. Hopefully the medical world will change the name of the disease before it wipes out pig farmers. Israelis are already calling it Mexican Flu...similar to the old Hong Kong Flu presumably.

Yes indeed, in fact they are "New Mr Porky Prime Cut Pork Scratchings, Extra Big Pieces". I'm just trying them now to make sure they are ok. If they pass the "taste nice with a pint of lager" test then I'll go and clear the shelves.
