Miranda,

They actually called it the japanese flu in that episode, and while looking for a cure, someone accidentally opened a truck filled with killer bees. But interestingly, Springfield did go into lockdown until a vaccine was found.

Miranda are you aware of the unspeakable crimes and human experimentation the nazis commited during WW2? Did you think it stopped? Who funded them to begin with? Many were brought to America and were giving limitless black budget funding to continue their horrific experiments. If youre not awake yet.... dash
