Maybe it's due to the efforts of the libs and socialist Democrat leaders, maybe the virus is just getting smarter with experience, but props to the 'rona for starting to focus on the deserving.

And here's a clue: What do the states with above-national average cases nearly all have in common?

Oregon has a Dem governor but the hot spots are where conservatives are in control so not a great exception to the rule.

Note to emergency room doctors: when a patriot shows up at the ER with advanced symptoms of Covid-19 and you ask him if he has self-medicated with any veterinary products, it’s a dead giveaway if he starts counting the doses by stamping his foot rather than verbally replying.

We used CoffeeMate, which gave the rails a smooth, creamy sensation (well, that was for the bindles we sold to the squares at the Theta Chi house).

A note on vet bills - mine are usually in the "Jesus Fucking Christ

!!!!" range. Last year I had one in the " Just how many of your kids am I supposed to put through Ohio State?" zone. Thank God for second mortgages.

True patriots take Bravecto and Heartgard. It’s right in the names: “brave” and “heart.” (Also, no more fleas!)

They tried to pass a second Covid relief bill, but all the Republicans voted neigh.

Somewhat removed from all this in Japan. But, like the vampire/zombie apocalypses in movies, give it time. I've got a buddy living Thailand who promotes Ivermectin daily, but has never taken it himself; I know a guy locally who refuses the vax (not approved!) but pumps steroids into himself to look good at the beach. I've heard about some older, educated people locally (including some doctors) refusing the vax as being "un-natural" (whatever the fuck that might mean). Pretty sure I was sold animal trank a few times as a youngster (lol), but damned sure that wasn't what I was looking for!

Always great, often brilliant. To wit: "Forget high-priced amoxicillin and take Enrotex Broad Spectrum Antibiotic Bird Supplement that comes in convenient powder form, which makes it easier to give to infants." Encapsulates so much of the current crazy.

Dear Media,

Please stop giving airtime to people touting unproven COVID medicines. It's playing havoc with life out here in the Heartland. Yesterday, I caught one of the Blucher kids in the sheep pen and this time he didn't have romance on his mind. He wanted my supply of ivermectin sheep drench! And thanks to the My Pillow guy, this morning I woke up to yet another roving band of yahoos munching on my oleander shrubs. And no more of that "Dr." Fauci with his vaccine nonsense. The only person you should have on is a real doctor, Dr. Stella Immanuel, endorsed by Donald Trump. She knows all about hydroxy as the cure for COVID, and her gynecological advice about demon sperm saved my marriage.

Yeah, that ivermectin thing? I can't even. Wow.

An instant classic from Mr. Edroso. Should be taught in schools.

All you need to know is that Jesus never used vaccines to heal the sick. Yes, it is true that Jesus submitted to the government and was killed for it, but God the Father rose Jesus from the dead and said "stop being a cuck" and that is a lesson for all of us.

lololol forever, I think you cracked the subtext of all rightwing culture with this one -- every single speech, every tweet, every crackpot article in any of their magazines -- it's all meant to be read as ending with a cry of "Wolverines!" What a bunch of rural high school football heroes holding off communist invasion.
