"Swine flu? Man, I'm too fast for that to catch ME!"

Posted By on Thu, Apr 30, 2009 at 7:15 PM

"I'm the healthiest 55-year-old you ever seen! Hey, I play golf every weekend!"

The last time the world faced a swine flu pandemic (1976), it was successfully neutralized by these two amazing public service announcements that showed swine flu spares absolutely no one -- not nice elderly ladies on their porches, not hoops-shooting teenagers with righteous Afros, and not even healthy 55-year-old bankers who play golf every weekend (and bear a striking resemblance to Errol Laborde).

The second PSA is even creepier: "Joe brought it home from the office ... and he gave it to his wife Betty ... and to one of his kids ... and to Betty's mother ..." Hey, Joe! Keep your swine flu to YOURSELF!
