At no point did anyone take Hugh Jackman seriously last night at the Golden Globes when he joked about the lack of importance of getting a flu shot.
Because, you see, it was a joke — he had the flu. He didn't like the flu, and he wasn't promoting how easy it was to have the flu. He was joking because he SHOULD HAVE gotten a flu shot.
