And now the good news
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…..
If we all have up sex wouldn't that eventually fix all the world's problems? In the time remaining we could eat and drink all we wanted, drive our polluting cars as much as we wanted and even keep our gas boilers into the bargain. Just saying… I doubt if this planet saving measure will be very popular really
I’ll admit at first (maybe still a little) that I was kinda nervous about this all because I smoke and I perhaps like beer a little more than I should. But I’m fairly healthy aside from that (recent check up gave me hope). I figure if anything is going to terminate me it will be the myriad chemicals and particulates from my job as a farm equipment mechanic. Those or the tons of cow shit dust I’ve inhaled.
We have all breathed tons of shit in our lifetimes, most of which we are not even aware. If the virus gets me and I don't survive then so be it, but I think the chances of that are very remote. When my day comes, I'll put it down to all the radioactive crap I have breathed over my lifetime.
I quite enjoyed this post from Frank Davis
Yup. Reddit [of course!] There is also this –
Apparently our little Greta-scold has announced that she and her father are self quarantining as they have symptoms, hers milder of course. Any suspicion of this being another attention seeking bit of performance art are probably totally justified.
Aw poor little diddums. I'd fly her over a crate full of chocolate to cheer her only for her ban on flying.
The bravest man in your country is the man at around 10:05 out on this video. He is issuing a call to arms. Will anyone listen?
Ah here now! Hold on. I think we may be straying a little close to tin-foil hat time here?
