So It has come to this in 2020.
 
 
 
1. The dumbest, most useless thing I ever bought was a 2020 planner.
 
2. I was so bored I called Jake from State Farm just to talk to someone.   He asked me what I was wearing.
 
3. In 2019:  Stay away from negative people.   In 2020:  Stay away from positive people
 
4. The world has turned upside down.  Old folks are sneaking out of the house & their kids are yelling at them to stay indoors!
 
5. This morning I saw a neighbor talking to her dog.  It was obvious she thought her dog understood her.  I came into my house & told my cat.  We laughed a lot.
 
6. Every few days try your jeans on just to make sure they fit.  Pajamas will have you believe all is well in the kingdom
 
7. Does anyone know if we can take showers yet... or should we just only keep washing our hands?
 
8. This virus has done what no woman has been able to do.  Cancel sports, shut down all bars & keep men at home!
 
9. I never thought the comment, “I wouldn’t touch him/her with a 6-foot pole” would become a national policy, but here we are!
 
10. I need to practice social-distancing from the refrigerator.
 
11. I hope the weather is good tomorrow for my trip to the Backyard.  I’m getting tired of the Living Room.
 
12. The  analogy "The curve is flattening so we can start lifting restrictions now” is like saying “The parachute has slowed our rate of descent, so we can take it off now.”   
 
13. Never in a million years could I have imagined I would go up to a bank teller wearing a mask & asking for money.
 
14. The spread of COVID-19 is based on 2 things:   
     
     How dense the population is.
     How dense the population is.

That's for real, man.  Sunglasses, safety goggles, whatever... masks fog all that crap up.

What kind of gear did Darth Vader use?  I'll bet his viewing lenses never fogged up.  I'd like to have something like that.

I'm actually surprised that hasn't become a thing.

I was sorely tempted to find myself a Darth Vader helmet for my last Zoom meeting. I already use a Star Destroyer bridge background.

Not a graphic meme but definitely a lighter side thing.
(This is satire obviously and hilarious!)
--- from the Babylon Bee
With many Americans eager to get back to work, state governors across the country are responding with their plans for giving everyone permission to be normal human beings again. One state governor is enjoying universal acclaim after unveiling his own innovative plan for getting his state reopened.
The new plan is called 'Our Vision for Health, Safety, Virtue, and Eternal Peace' and is a 37-step, 10-year plan for slowly opening up sections of the state economy. It reads as follows:

1. Form an exploratory committee to consult various experts on reopening things
2. Set date to hear recommendations from the exploratory committee
3. Create a panel of experts to explore the recommendations recommended by the exploratory committee
4. Build a brand new website to post exploratory committee recommendations for public comment
5. Discuss feedback from health experts over catered seafood lunch
6. Wait 4 weeks to see if catered seafood lunch led to any additional COVID infections
7. Hire commission to gauge the effectiveness of collaboration over catered seafood lunches
8. Take away all the guns
9. Announce a 12-phase reopening of the economy, starting with the businesses with the best lobbyists
10. Begin Phase 1
11. Form a new committee to review the effectiveness of Phase 1 before moving on to Phase 2
12. Order drones from China and post them in front of every hair salon
13. Draft new legislation to allow voting by show of hands over Facebook live
14. Announce reopening of all golf courses in close proximity to the statehouse
15. Hold public hearings on the effectiveness of the implementation of Phase 1
16. Repeat parts 1-15 until all 12 phases are completed
17. Form an exploratory committee to research alternate food sources now that catered seafood no longer available
18. Draft legislation allowing people to eat squirrels and possums
19. Overturn squirrels and possums legislation after animal rights groups protest
20. Hire animal rights groups to enforce the overturning of the legislation in order to protect squirrels and possums
21. Introduce tax bill to fund arming all police officers with harpoon guns and spears
22. Strengthen the security of governors mansion with sniper towers and tiger pits
23. ...Maybe also a moat around the governor’s mansion
24. More drones from China, maybe bigger ones
25. Pass new legislation to fund hiring more enforcers to enforce things
26. Build checkpoints across the state to distribute milk and guzzoline
27. Create jobs by hiring welders to install armor plating on police cars
28. (redacted)
29. (redacted)
30. (redacted)
31. (redacted)
32. (redacted)
33. (redacted)
34. (redacted)(redacted)(redacted)(redacted)(redacted)(redacted)
35. (Super-secret surprise to be determined later)
36. Open the rest of the economy
37. Gladiator games anyone?

Other states have announced they will wait 10-15 years to judge the effectiveness of this 37 part plan before releasing their own plans.

Nor did they  grint. Sad commentary on job loss and hunger, but at least the victim saw the funny side.  :icon_mrgreen:

Of course they were wearing masks then.

How else do you make sure people don't identify whose butt was on view at any given time.
