Every cloud has a silver wotsit.
Or so they say.
There must be some people who are absolutely thrilled at the current bit of inconvenience sweeping the planet.
Take for example little Gertie Thunderbird [Blessed Be her Name]. She must be ecstatic at the reduction of aeroplanes in the sky? Add to that the massive reduction of cars on the roads and we must be on the point of exterminating climate for once and for all. This is all she ever dreamed of.
On the other hand these obsessives can be a little unpredictable at times and the fact that she is being totally ignored while the pandemic grabs all the headlines could tip her over the edge and she could end up eating her parents or something. One never knows.
Then there’s the anti-eating mob who are always whittering and whinging about obesity. They must be thrilled that the fast food outlets [especially McDonalds] have closed? There again, they got what they wanted but not because they wanted it. Someone else stole their thunder on that one. Bummer!
The anti-alcohol crowd should be pleased at all the pub closures? Of course the major retailers continue to sell the dreaded poison so they’d probably like them shut down too? Naturally we would all then die of hunger but at least it would solve the alcohol problem. A population wiped out by starvation is a small price to pay.
One crowd that must feel a little left out are the anti-smokers. They have been trying their best to prove that Covid-19 is caused by smoking but have had to fall back to a rather pathetic “#QuitforCovid” campaign on Twitter. I have even seen claims that imply that smokers produce a sort of second-hand Coronavirus which really doesn’t surprise me.
It’s an ill wind…..
