State health officials fighting swine flu with sarcasm
The number of swine flu cases reported in Colorado last week fell for the third week in a row, as can be seen onthis handy-dandy chart

But a decline in H1N1 didn't stop the department from making a handy-dandy PSA, which attempts to fight the swine flu with sarcasm, raised eyebrows and rhyming words. See above.
Their effort pales in comparison to the PSAs made by the U.S. guv-ment in 1976, when the swine flu-related death of a single soldier set off mass hysteria and sparked a campaign to convince every American to get a flu shot... by scaring the shit out of them with TV commercials about how old ladies get killed by swine flu -- but not before passing the virus to their veterinarians.
Dun, dun, dun! Watch the PSAs by clicking below:
