Get Well Stephen Colbert (et al)

This IS Final(?) Jeopardy!

`

Today’s Category: Late Night TV

Today’s Clue…

In ADDITION to Stephen Colbert, James Corden,
Jimmy Kimmel, Seth Meyers & Jimmy Fallon all
hosting talk shows, they have THIS in common.

`

Players, you have 30 seconds to express
your response in the form of a Question…

(Anyone opting to actually “compete”, should
think up that Question prior to scrolling down.)

`

`

`

`

`

What is being fully vaxxed
YET, contracting Covid-19?

`

TRUE Jeopardy Notation insists we punctuate our responses with a “?”, HOWEVER, there can be no question re the medical ramifications; i.e., while the vaccines are successfully preventing serious and deadly consequences, humans can STILL become coronavirus infected; STILL easily infect others.

And that STILL fully validates this layperson’s contention, from the very onset of this godforsaken plague:

`

Only a WORLDWIDE MASK MANDATE can help ensure
we expeditiously snuff out & bury the coronavirus; i.e.,
avoid an apocalyptic scenario where one, maybe more
of its variants void the vaccines; to snuff out & bury us!

`

There can be no question that sicko / psycho Donald J. Trump’s politicization of the pandemic has infected and spread throughout the vast body of his MAGA Maniacs / Morons / Malcontents (and beyond); thereby resulting in their all too damned common, cavalier attitude…

…their absolutely indefensible, “offhand, indifferent, casual, dismissive, insouciant, unconcerned; supercilious, patronizing, condescending, disdainful, scornful, contemptuous, couldn’t-care-less, devil-may-care” state of chronic insanity!

Upon closer scrutiny of this entire mess, matters pan out as the following, grave, glaringly obvious, public health threat…

  • Bad enough… within the entertainment industry, ALL five of those mentioned TV personalities enjoy a vast circle of friends/contacts; far more so than average folks such as you and I do.
  • Even worse… those friends/contacts also enjoy a vast circle of friends/contacts.
  • Worst of all… it’s a near certainty that at some point, some of these infected people will come into contact with immunocompromised and unvaxxed individuals.

It’s at that juncture where the potential for needless suffering / dying enters the big picture.

Returning to the earliest of our pandemic days… we witnessed Colbert, Corden, Kimmel, Meyers and Fallon responsibly sheltering/isolating (e.g., doing their talk show shtick sans LIVE audiences; Zoom interviewing their guests.

More to the point… these hosts and guests, alike, had been just as witty, personable and entertaining as ever. Sure, I do get it, it’s no fun for comedians / entertainers to not cop that buzz; all courtesy of their applauding, cheering, hooting, whooping it up, LIVE audiences; HOWEVER

In the end… the operative word becomes LIVE; as in keeping humanity ALIVE.

The time has come for these five entertainers to cease needlessly Jeopardizing humanity (case in point, Colbert’s covid has even spread to his house band’s impresario, Jon Batiste. Need I say more?) YES, I do need to say more. They must lead by example; demonstrate to the rest of humanity how to behave in a responsible, respectable manner.

In other words… Guys, PLEASE, set aside your egos; resume performing from your covid bunkers with only the bare minimum, production crew contingent. If this is any help, try harboring in your heads, hearts and souls the sentitments popularized by singer Vera Lynn; the lyrics which solemnly vow…

“We’ll meet again,
Don’t know where,
Don’t know when
But I know we’ll meet again some sunny day”

Granted, my authoring a 700 word count blog, devoted to TV talk show hosts, may, superficially, seem silly. However, one cannot understate the beneficial impact this quintet (in particular Colbert, Meyers and Kimmel) has been making upon the national political discourse; how their speaking truth to power via “jokes”, serves a far more significant purpose.

Such courageous comedians are heightening the awareness / enlightenment of their Stateside audiences; the very people who, don’t normally pay close attention to the ever-present dangers; the grave threats to liberty and democracy; such as those posed by the STILL unpunished, insurrectionist and fascist X-Prez Trump and his entire freak show entourage.

Long pensive sigh… I now conclude this post, just as I’ve done for the past two+ years…

Now More Than Ever… PLEASEEVERYBODY

Fortune Cookie Blog: Going Commando?

`

Just as it’d be balmy for meteorologists to simultaneously report freezing
temps & advise we strip down to our skivvies [while in outdoor environs],
it’s just as crazy for virologists to simultaneously report Covid-19 variants’
feverish temps & advise we shuck our pandemic masks [in indoor venues].
When they command, “go commando” [uh, facially], it’s time to MASK UP!
Whether we’re vaxxed or unvaxxed, we can still shed / spread coronavirus.

`

Hence…

Defy Idiots, Ideologues and Wackos

`

The global pandemic will rage on, endlessly, until everyone fully accepts the time honored science; totally lives by the indisputable truth that, be one vaxxed or unvaxxed, people can be both Covid-19 infected and asymptomatic.

As such, we humans are fully capable of unknowingly shedding and spreading the bat crap crazy, communicable coronavirus and its ever-evolving variants throughout our mobile, global society.

In other words… vaxxing up, quite simply, will NEVER be enough. If we expect to fully eradicate this godforsaken virus, anytime soon, we will absolutely need to mask up whenever we’re within any public, indoor setting.

That it’s even necessary to point that out, more than two years into this deadly and debilitating public health crisis, amply demonstrates how our empowered national, state and local representatives have been utterly failing to represent our best interests.

Regardless of political stripe, they’ve been caving into political and economic pressures; i.e., to the ceaseless demands of anti-masker idiots, ideologues and wackos, who don’t give a flying F about the health and well-being of anyone.

Stateside, stunningly so, it’s now even doubtful that we can still depend on President Joe Biden to live up to his pledge to set the pandemic safety protocols based upon scientific facts NOT political fiction.

In other words…

  • We, who actualy give a damn about humanity, have been utterly abandoned and, as such, it’s totally up to us to lead the way to a brighter day.
  • Working towards that end… correction… working towards that new beginning, it is now totally up to us, alone, to flat-out defy anyone moronic and/or malicious and/or maniacal enough to FOOLISHLY and PREMATURELY recommend going maskless.

In other words…

Stay Publicly / Properly Masked!
Stay Safe at Home!
Stay Healthy!

Fortune Cookie Blog (Cheekiness?)

`

To win the debate vs. COVID-19 spreaders, who defy public health rules,
it’d neither be cheeky nor tongue-in-cheek to state, “Resolved: The time
is ripe to reclassify both the nose and mouth as private parts. Were this
to occur, we could “pinch” (arrest) anti-maskers for Indecent Exposure!”

Fortune Cookie Blog (MaskWearing 101)

 

The rationale for grousing about pandemic masks runs the
full gamut and can speak volumes re a person’s character.
The selfish vent discontent by flat-out refusing to wear‘em.
The selfless comply, yet, express exasperation, seeing how
the non-compliant prolong Sickness, Suffering and Death.
