Everything orf!

Post by etcetera »

Glastonbury cancelled, and the French Open & Eurovision, filming of Eastenders & Casualty stopped, where will it end (rhetorical question.)
It's like being in some surreal sci-fi movie, especially when we see images of Trafalgar Square & other places completely empty!
Life has ground to a halt. I think when this is over, many people are going to re-think how they live & make changes.
Strange times.

:holymoly:

(I suppose I'll be accused of being negative, but all this is just fact. We can't get away from it.)

It's about cancellations? Oh.
Er -- sorry my mistake. Must dash (makes excuses, turns up coat collar, scuttles swiftly out)

Just passed the front door & saw a card sticking through the letterbox. Read it, and it was from Welsh Water asking for a meter reading.
I called the number on it & gave the reading; then I said - if you'd rung the bell I would have answered. Oh no, he said, we can't do that because of the coronavirus!! Geez the world's gone mad. :greennod: I have an account with them, they have my mobile number, my email address, but they have to send a man pushing cards through letterboxes, who is not allowed to speak to occupants face to face.

How dare you Sir! I simply thought it was a sale at greatly reduced prices. I told the constable so. :shock:

H1N1, the so called 'swine' fever, infected and killed thousands, in many countries. Including children.

It came to nowt, here in Blighty, apparently because huge numbers already had natural immunity.

Who knows, per'aps it will be the same with this crown-of-thorns virus?

Dream on! Do you imagine that we are better biologically protected than other Europeans, especially Italians?
Protestors are much more violently opposed to fur than they are to leather. Why? Because it's much easier to hassle rich women than bikers.

Can't possibly happen. The government has advised against you-know-what during the lockdown.

Especially since the major factory for manufacturing condoms, which is in Malaysia has shut down. Plus other factories in neighbouring countries.
