Sunday Funday: Set Your Calendar To May Edition

Sometime while I was hiding inside from that nasty virus that Donny Corona seems to think was made in a lab in China by Obama using Kenyan witch doctor tricks that he learned in that non-existent state of Hawaii while he was a little boy who was also plotting how to destroy the tests for said virus when he was ready to release it on the world – {deep breath} my grass grew a bunch. 

In previous years I would be all flustered thinking that my neighbors would be looking at my long grass and thinking ‘well gee, what’s the matter with him?’ But this year I figure they aren’t going outside any more than I do right now so if they do notice it, they are probably ducking back inside before the virus nails them. And for some reason, having the grass cut is not my highest priority this year.

It is really something to see Donny Corona twisting himself into knots and knots and knots to try to prove that someone — anyone — is the cause of his lousy response to the pandemic. I am figuring my turn to get blamed will be coming later this month.

At our country’s current death rate from coronavirus we will pass 120,000 by Memorial Day, maybe 250,000 by July 4th. Reopening the country now will be pouring gasoline on a bonfire.

Remember when Anthony Fauci said shutting down 2 weeks earlier could have saved 90% of our deaths? Think about that as the death toll rises.
