  • Sadly the video has been removed


  • My hubby is a big sook when sick, it’s like yes the only person to ever be sick. He doesn’t move much when he’s sick


  • Lol, men are such big babies when they are sick.


  • hahahahhaa my husband tried to tell me he doesn’t get manflu…mmmhmmm


  • Hahahahahahaha, this is absolutely hilarious. My hubby heard the video and came in to watch it! Luckily, he never suffers from man flu. He gets a cold and deals with it quietly. In fact, he recovers so quickly, it drives me nuts. However, my 15 year old son gets man flu. Terrible man/boy flu. I must show him this.


  • Hehehe, that’s hilarious indeed !


  • Hilarious – this is just so RIGHT – they do get better as they get older.


  • Hilariously well done.


  • LOL. Can’t generalise too much, my dad and hubby aren’t like that (although my brother – biggest man flu baby ever!!)


  • Ha! Ha! Some men are really like that. And quite hypochondriac too!! :-)


  • Hehehe, so true. I often ask my husband if I have to bring him to the hospital when he has a flue or cold ;)


  • Yep they are just big babies man up a little.. When i had a operation a year ago and was meant to be off my feet for a week.. He took the time off but did nothing at all. I still had to take care of the kids and cook tea etc… Next time dont take time off work… I will have one less person to look after..


  • So true, I know exactly how she feels!
