Fans of One Direction are totally devastated that the band is ready to go on hiatus. But there's a silver lining -- now that he can finally catch a break, Niall Horan will have plenty of time to rest, relax, and recuperate from his recent illness.
The 1D-er told his Twitter followers on Sunday (August 30) that he woke up achy and feverish, which can only be the result of one dastardly disease: the #manflu. Say it ain't so!
What's the difference between a regular flu and a man flu? Do you grow a thicker beard and have a harder time expressing your feelings? (Actually, it's slang in the UK and Ireland for when men have a cold but exaggerate it to make themselves sound tougher. But beard growth makes for a funnier joke!)
Either way, it doesn't sound like fun, so here's some products we think might be specially attuned to Niall's current man-needs. Feel better soon!
For your man sneezes!
Let's face it, your face is gonna get all dry and gross and probably emasculated.
Not only is this tea for men, but it supposedly helps you gain muscle! So you can be even manlier! Maaaaan.
Well, Soupman soup. But the guy from "Seinfeld" makes it so it's bound to make you healthier and more aggressive, just like he is. NO FLU FOR YOU!
Actually, maybe Niall was just trying to court favors from the Manflu company, which is a thing that really exists, with his tweet. Can't blame him for that. What's Twitter for if not trying to nab free samples from brands?
