I love ALL of these!

The one below was posted on Seniorforums.com, but unfortunately I forgot to include credit so I don't know who originally posted it. The discussion topic was "What foods should be in your pantry during the lockdown?" and then the jokes broke off into another thread, where I picked up this one:

Eld, the pac-man mentality is what I have at the grocery store, and have thought of that!

Aok, your analogy is perfect.

Raye Smith I just got off the phone with my doctor. I had a phone visit with him about an injury I am treating. We had quite the chat about the ridiculousness of the masks, the shelter in place and he absolutely detests the witch who heads our Public Health department. He confirmed she hasn't practiced a day of medicine since she was handed her MD. He wants us out and about of the house LIVING LIFE. That comic is her and her political cronies.

Wild, I believe we live in the same area and it is well recognized that Dr. Cody is the reason our area didn't go nuts with Covid. She has done a spectacular job, but now it's almost out of her hands and up go the numbers.

Hi susanwv,

It seems to me that there's quite a difference between the two: the one on the left, that nose thing, peeking over the mask, operates a two-way street, and the mask is to collect almost all of the big drops of liquid outbound, that may carry a large load of contagion if one has caught the virus, so the main job of the mask is to protect the neighbours from similar contamination.

As those big drops float around, some break up, and they dry and shrink, and carry those viruses in small droplets, only a small percentage of which, if any, are caught by the mask when inbound so the wearer has minimal protection from big drops that shrank, produced by others... if their mask is positioned as instructed.

But the one on the right, that pee-er thing, hanging out in the company of the underwear, only manages outbound stuff on a one way street.

As manager, if one can call it that, of one of those things for many years, after having taught it to operate at only certain times, I have never been aware of any traffic in the other direction.

As manager of a catheter for a time, I was never offered any instruction as to preparation that I might need to make for any materials to travel the other way.

Jes sayin'

ole joyful

P.S. People who move about in public without wearing a mask, and the distancing, wouldn't dream of peeing (or putting poison) into my soup.

But if they've caught the virus and aren't showing symptoms yet they may be spreading potentially killer viruses with every step except the ones when they're holding their breath.

Should I happen to walk through an area where they've shed breath with viruses within a few minutes ...

... and get the problems that it carries, up to and including lifelong lung or other disability or death ...

... I might have preferred, given the choice, to have had them pee in my soup!

My food bowl is missing three crunchies and the water has been sitting there for fifteen minutes. I haven't had a treat in thirty minutes and my litter box needs cleaning, one pee. This is NOT going to look good on your evaluation!

The banana 🍌 one was here in Houston on the news. The news person said bandanas but someone in the graphics department thought banana was a better choice lol. Every one on the news had a good laugh and so did we. We can use all the funnies right now!

And then Brooke Shields found out about it and did the picture! Channel 2 is now famous for a banana 🍌!

According to the latest WHO experts a person who has Covid19 needs to stay only 3 feet away from others. (see chart) I guess only healthy people outdoors are to keep the 6 foot distance.

Reading for comprehension, wildchild. That’s “wear a mask and keep at least 3 feet of distance”. Six feet outside is for unmasked people, though masking would be preferable l

colleenoz - That is incorrect. Our health departments and all signage in public places stresses masks and six foot minimum distance. Even the stores that now require masks (face coverings) ,almost all do here, have the six foot markers and continually try to remind people. Masks AND distancing. That applies to waiting in line outdoors also. That is one of my pet peeves with all the focus on masks. People tend to think they are safer and don't follow social distancing which to me is the more important of the two.

I've seen a number of things that call the 6 feet suggestion into question and suggest a greater distance, like 4-5 meters (12-15 feet), is better

Who said that how we spell isn't hugely important - so long as the readers understand our meaning?

Shame on us if we stopped giving ourselves spelling tests the day we left school.

In some parts of the orient, eld, they'd add the number "4", considered unlucky. Many multi-storied buildings don't have a fourth floor, as many don't have a thirteenth in the areas with which many of us are familiar.

Thanks, contributors, for putting a smile on my masked-when-in-public face several times.

Once in a convenience store with a distancing line awaiting checkout, when I said, with some more volume than usual, "Do you know one of the extra good things about wearing a mask?", and someone asked "No, what is it?", I replied, "No one can see the wrinkles!"

That brought some laughter and some smiles.

When I've used it in a few stores since, some laugh a bit, or smile, some say something like "That's a good one" and a number have added, "I'm going to use that one".

Seems more enthusiastically received with middle aged or something folks.
