Like a menacing cobra, the Moronavirus is rearing its ugly head!
Just when you thought that the pandemic was abating, it might get worse. A second wave of the dreaded Coronavirus is sweeping the country and it might be deadlier than the first one.
The culprit is the Moronavirus and it is as cunning and deadly as its cousin. It is a light and nimble traveler that likes to hitch rides on easy marks, and there seem to be plenty of them around. The Morona is like a flea; it has prodigiously strong hindlimbs, and it takes just a short jump to find a new place to live and multiply.
Unlike the Coronavirus that was originally thought to only threaten older folks , the Moronavirus seems to be fonder of younger crowds. The kind of young adults (?) who like to party while guzzling loads of suds.
These airheads don’t seem to believe that the enemy is still among us. Out of sight, out mind, right? After 2 months of confinement, and especially when the sun is shining, they are itching to get out and live it up. Some think that social distancing is just a “socialist” plot to keep them from having fun. Masks be damned as well!
We are young and healthy and there are few chances that the Moronavirus will attack us. Vulnerable? we are too active to be… Live for the present… who knows what tomorrow will bring…
What about spreading this disease to other people? If they don’t like it, let them stay away from us.
But you will eventually come in contact with friends, relatives, colleagues… and Moronavirus loves to schmooze…
We will take a chance! After all, life is a gamble. We want to have fun while we can.
By the way, do you know why this virus is called Moronavirus? You don’t? It was named in honor of its friends… it still does not ring a bell?
What if I said:
Airhead, birdbrain, blockhead, bonehead, cretin, dimwit, dodo, donkey, doofus dope, dork, dullard, dumdum, dummkopf, dummy, dunce, dunderhead, fathead, half-wit, idiot, ignoramus, knucklehead, moron, nitwit…
Or, egocentric, egotistical, egomaniacal, self-centered, self-regarding, self-obsessed, self-seeking, self-serving, wrapped up in oneself, thoughtless, unthinking uncaring, heedless…
Still don’t get it?
Lawd, forgive them blockheads!
