DO NOT...I REPEAT .... DO NOT LISTEN TO A WORD OF WHAT TRUMP OR HIS IDIOTIC ADMINISTRATION SAY.

Sssshhhh

If anybody - anybody - is enough of a moron to actually believe a pig in a wig over the academics of their own country (although admittedly the UK government doesn't seem to have much faith in UK science either) then it's probably for the best.

If we're really lucky, he'll advise that a cranially self-injected .32 caliber medical bullet will cure corona, and the world will be a safer place.

Sounds like you might be the parent of a future Prime Minister there. Such perspicacity in one so young.

Not a gin person myself

Me neither and I don't, in fact, have any in the house. I do have 3 bottles of Antiguan Rum which I am sure will suffice.

That is one wise 4 year old. Make him Prime Minister! Unless you are
American in which case he can be president.

They are testing a vaccine at university of Washington in Seattle. I volunteered to be in the test group but was rejected as I live too far from the hospital where the trials are being carried out. Our local news did show the people who were selected being vaccinated and interviewed them. So that much is true.

I soaked my toilet paper in tonic water and mummified myself. Figure I'm safe or I'll look so much like the invisible man that the virus won't realise I'm here at all.

A tremendous vaccine, truly nothing like it ever.

Just seen it. The two people standing next to him looked embarrassed to be associated with him. He prattled on like an idiot.

Hmm, disguise yourself in loo paper. The most highly sought after commodity in the kingdom. Nope, nothing at all can go wrong with that plan.

If you have no toilet paper, sticking a piece of fusilli up each nostril will protect you.

Doesn't he look in a mirror? Or if he does, does he not wonder why he's orange with swimming goggle eyes?

We have discussed his eyes in the Boaty household. I explained the sunbed goggles to my boys, but DS1 asked why he doesnโ€™t get make-up people to even him up before he goes on telly. I had no answer to that.
