U Can’t Touch This – COVID 19 Edition (CO-VID of the Day)

Props and appreciation are in order for astute rapper, witty parodist and adept videographer Nick Savino.

Over at YouTube, he sets up this vid… his impressive MC Hammer impression… thusly…

“Hope this brings some joy, laughter, and smiles to your day during this tough time due to coronavirus. Let’s stay positive! All sounds in this video were made completely using every item seen in this video. Stay clean and stay safe!”

Since caution cannot possibly be overstated during a pandemic, I’ll ditto his closing sentiments with my typical blog ender…

Stay Safe… Stay Home… Stay Healthy…

 

 

 

 

Check Out This Death-Sentence Sentence

 

Considering the absence of acting expeditiously, proactively and honestly, science savvy leadership… regrettably and typically a stateside issue… this means wiping out the coronavirus pandemic has been left up to us. We, the everyday ordinary people of the world, are fully capable of doing something extraordinary… namely… making a difference… becoming the containing / conquering heroes… if… and this is THE BIG IF…

We follow these common sense precautions…

[1] Practice good hygiene (scrub hands often at least 20 seconds), [2] Cover our coughs and sneezes, [3] Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth, [4] Social distancing (remain 2 meters / 6 feet apart [5] avoid large crowds or (ideally) just stay at home and [6] if ill, self quarantine.

Upon dusting off my ages old, wind-up analog stopwatch, I’ve discovered that the above paragraph’s sentence takes approximately 20 seconds to utter or mutter.

Were we so inclined, these Words-To-The-Wise could be delivered 3 times per minute… or 180 times per hour… or 4,320 times per day. And while repetition is key in “selling” any “new”, time-honored concept… we need not go to such an extreme.

All it really takes is transforming this Six-Step Sentence into the life saving catchphrase that it already is. By reciting these very words every time we wash our hands, that sentence could easily become the coronavirus’ death sentence!

Indeed, instead of humanity, that damned bug would be doomed.

It’d be far more meaningful than merely singing Happy Birthday twice. After all, it’d be securing our future birthdays, too!
