Sr. Teresa Forcades and the H1N1 flu vaccine: The Comic Version

TV3's "Polónia" comedy show has produced a very funny skit about the arguments between Sr. Teresa and the Minister of Health over the safety of the H1N1 flu vaccine. I almost didn't post this video out of respect, but then I decided that you haven't really arrived as a cultural icon until people start lampooning you. And the actress who plays Sr. Teresa Forcades has clearly been studying videos of her because she has her hand gestures down pat.

Here is the official description of the video: "The Minister for Health, Marina Geli, holds a debate with the doctor and Benedictine nun Teresa Forcades about the safety of the Influenza A vaccine. Josep Cuní must make peace between them both." Enjoy!

  1. Ha, ha! That's funny! Yes, she's become a popular person in our country now.
    The video says that the socialist minister is gealous of a nun who has proved to be more progressist than her! I totally agree with that: our socialist parties are still too... patriarchal?
    Mmm, who knows.
