I was going to post this in the coronavirus thread but after watching it I felt it was more appropriate for the lighter side.

Ain't this the truth  :icon_rolleyes:

Douglas Adams must be having hysterics in his grave.

The Golgafrinchams sent off the useless third of their population into space and then subsequently died of a virulent plague contracted from a dirty telephone.

The third who went into space crash landed on a planet in the unfashionable end of the western spiral arm of the galaxy, and it was subsequently revealed to be the Earth, 2 million years ago.

Now we're in danger of being wiped out by a virulent virus contracted from a dirty telephone.

You can't escape destiny!

I think I remember using this phone. I know we had to pick up the phone and jiggle the crossbar until an operator answered. Would then have to give her the number and she would connect you. I lived in a small town but definitely not rural.

We had these and my uncle was a repair man for them. You had to call the phone company from your neighbor's house and he would come and take it apart and fix it.

I can recall having to book a call with the operator for long distance to grandma.  No spam in those days, of course.  But The Phone Co no less tyrannical than what we have now, as in James Coburn's "The President's Analyst" (there's a merry lockdown afternoon).

A masked protester wearing a protective vest threw an explosive device at a federal courthouse. He got identified and caught because his Grandmother, who’d bought the vest for him to protect him from rubber bullets in the protests, posted a review of the vest along with a photo of him modeling it. (Guy’s defense: “The device I’ve been accused of allegedly throwing was allegedly given to me by an unknown protestor with full face coverings. I was allegedly told that it was a strobe firework that wouldn’t damage the building or harm anyone around it.” Arrested for felony arson --which has a minimum of five years [and it probably doesn’t help that the guy was on probation for a felony conviction at the time.])
So heh, Thanks Grandma!!!
