Humor Helps

Provided without comment. Well, one comment: this makes more sense than all the Covid-19 “the sky is falling” knee-jerk overreaction I saw nearly everywhere on my recent trip.



When you encounter epic stupidity, you can do one of two things: get torqued, or laugh your butt off. The latter is probably the best course, and is much more fun.

It’s good to be back home, even if almost everywhere seems to be “stuck on stupid”.

    That’s what I’ve been doing laughing it off for the most part
    I’m still trying to figure out my some lady if that’s what she was
    Needed two shopping carts of TP
    Another lady in line asked her if she could possibly shit that much
    Before she died. No response of course but I did laugh my ass off watching
    Two grandmas fight over TP

    Go ahead and grow your beard out a bit,
    And then your girl won’t give you any shi..aving cream.

    Teh stoopid does seem to be strong still everywhere Hondo. My “social distancing” is my life as usual. I don’t go out too much, it’s too peopley out there. And most people make me sick, Kung/ChiCom Flu or not. Did have to get out and about yesterday for awhile. FIRST time in almost 2 weeks. Had to go see my pill pusher and get some refills. Gots a 90 day supply this time. Also went to check on a lady friend’s house. Short trip only about 70 miles round trip, went thru 2 smaller towns. Pharmacy was doing business ONLY thru the drive in window and no handling of scrip bottles passing back and forth. Requesting customers to have either a made out check or exact change if possible to keep contact down with cards/pens ect. There were people everywhere out and about doing trade and commerce, grocery store parking lots were 3/4 full. Seems that food service places were the only ones with mostly empty parking lots. Ran into one section where a road crew was doing resurfacing work on the state highway. 15 or 20 of them bunched around the back of the asphalt spreader and the 2 flaggers at each end hanging together smoking and passing their flags back and forth. Other crews were in the big city hard at work on the rebuilding of the I75 & I16 interchange. I got back to my hermit hole, washed my hands and made up some hamburger steak and smashed taters with cheese.

    I used to get angry. Now I get amused, much more healthy and it really pisses ’em off.

      Words ^^^^
      everyone were I live
      is like why are you so calm
      My reply is stressing will kill you
      I’ve seen 8 people go to the hospital
      The last week and a half, freaked out
      Only to find out there is nothing wrong
      I fill like telling them I told you so
      But why bother they won’t listen anyways

      Elvis Costello said it best

      “I used to be disgusted, now I try to be amused”

      I went to get some toilet paper, but the supply was already wiped out….

    And in the same line… Charlie Robison’s ‘Life of the Party’

    Definitely a man who got the best the Dixie Chicks had to offer – married the gorgeous fiddle player who didn’t talk much.

    If nothing else the actions of many of my fellow Baystaters sort of proves the UN report on the global decline of IQs is relatively accurate.

    Everyone seems a little dumber because they are in fact, a little dumber with each passing decade according to the UN.

    Throw in a pandemic that is unlike anything that anyone alive today was actually seen as an adult and you have this chaos that we now see developing not only here in the United States but everywhere.

    It also clarifies some things rather dramatically. We are not a nation of fierce, independent spirits. We are a nation of panicky fucktards without any clue how to wipe our asses unless we have four years of ass wipe paper in our pantries during a crisis situation. For some reason the same idiots thinking they need a metric ton of shit paper also believe they need few hundred gallons of drinking water…What about the virus has suggested the water supply will be turned off? And if it is how you will flush that ton of shit paper you fucking morons?

    The good advice out there comes from those who actually know a few things about viruses and the world. It’s too bad we have so many morons who would rather hoard PPE gear they don’t need and force hospitals to consider worst case scenarios where they have to issue DNRs on the sickest patients to avoid infecting hospital staff due to a lack of PPE gear.

    Stay safe people, laugh when you can, and wash your goddamn hands…

    • Hondo says:

      Remark overheard at WalMart while traveling, while people were lining up because word was they were about to bring out some TP: “Welcome to the Socialist way of doing things.” (Or something similar.)

      The real kicker is that from all accounts, Covid-19 causes pneumonia and other URI effects vice the GI tract disturbances common with the flu. So other than for blowing noses it’s likely that most of that extra TP wouldn’t be used anyway.

      • Veritas Omnia Vincit says:

        I find all of this fascinating, as a fan of process how we react to certain social situations, political situations or crisis situations becomes a study in who and what we really are as a nation.

        I was long offended at the analogy that we the people are nothing more than sheep for a variety of reasons but it appears the reality is worse than us being sheep…we are far less organized than sheep…we are more like chickens running wild on the farm, with almost no purpose whatsoever beyond the next handful of chicken seed.

        Not to mention mass grabbing of hand sanitizer while actual soap is sitting around getting dusty.

      I had never known fear to the extent I experienced in Quang Tri Province in 68 either before or since. I am sure others here have had the same sort of experiences. Most of our countrymen and women have not experienced any thing of the sort. That is why it seems to us they are like chickens with their heads removed. Leaves us wondering what the fuss is all about.

    Watch a lady use wetnap after wetnap wiping down her entire shopping cart (except for the wheels) and this is after the grocery store runs them thru a sanitizing spray they set up when they bring the carts back to the store from the parking lot. Just shook my head.

    Or, your in an aisle and someone comes into the same aisle, sees you, turns around and goes to the next aisle, peeks around the corner to see if you are still there. Just shook my head.

    Or in the check out line, the person is wearing a mask and is trying to keep a six foot interval but isn’t quite sure how long six foot is, so they are constantly adjusting the space…. usually going further backwards. Just shook my head.

    I think overall veterans adjust better to the CHICOM virus better than the civilians do. We are used to being told what to do, where to stand, how to keep an interval and use to shortages. (smile)
