Aren’t we civilized in this country? While Denver is levying large fines for quarantine breakers, in Rwanda a quarantine breaker was eaten by a crocodile. Seriously, that was a pretty common hazard in Rwanda even before Covid-19, but with fewer people out and about, the crocs have slimmer pickings, and are probably more aggressive. The man in Rwanda violated lockdown orders amid the coronavirus outbreak to go fishing – but was killed and eaten by an crocodile. “He had broken the stay-home rule, he’s among very few people here who are not cooperating with the lockdown to stop the virus,” Alice Kayitesi, mayor of the southern Kamonyi district, told the BBC. The unidentified man was attacked by the croc on Wednesday in the Nyabarongo river, the news outlet reported. I’m sure he would rather have paid a fine.
This morning, I began typing “covi” on my iPad, and it provided the word “covidiot”. Then I read the following, from the Urban Dictionary. It seems like the naysayers, disbelievers and rule-breakers in the global fight against COVID-19 have been honored with a new term describing their dimwitted defiance: “Covidiot.” Urban Dictionary’s most popular, recent definition of “covidiot” defines the offender as “someone who ignores the warnings regarding public health or safety” during the worldwide coronavirus outbreak. If that is the definition of Covidiot, what the heck is Larz? Something lower, for sure.
A Beverly Hills “social media influencer” is reportedly hospitalized after contracting COVID-19 — mere days after licking a public toilet bowl. The influencer, 21-year-old “Larz,” went viral earlier this week after sharing a video of himself licking a toilet bowl, according to the Daily Mail. He reportedly shared the video with the caption “RT to spread awareness for the Coronavirus.” Obviously, being called an influencer is a very low bar, requiring a functioning cerebellum but not necessarily a cerebral cortex. Dude, your caption should have been shortened by leaving out the three words between spread and Coronavirus. Whom exactly is he influencing? Larz announced in a since-deleted tweet that he was diagnosed with the coronavirus. According to The Gay UK, video of the incident gained more than 90,000 views before being yanked off the internet. A later post reportedly included a video of the “influencer” lying in a hospital bed. In the video, he reportedly says that he’s “pretty doped up from his meds.” Actually, he was plenty doped up….or is it dumbed down, well before the hospital meds.…perhaps from the womb.
Larz gained notoriety after reportedly being involved in viral videos featuring him licking stores’ ice cream cartons and more. He was just one of many young people who engaged in a summer 2019 trend of defiling ice cream in stores and filming the act for posterity. Larz, who interviewed in 2019 with Dr. Phil McGraw, also previously said that his own family is “irrelevant. None of them have followers, if they got followers or got rich, I’d probably talk to them again,” he petulantly blathered. His Twitter account appears to be suspended at the time of this writing. (His IQ development was suspended years ago). I think they should leave the Twitter account up–until he can influence enough folks as stupid as he to follow in his footsteps, thus raising the global IQ by 10 points or so if this pandemic keeps spreading. Yes, I’m mean. Sue me!
And now, for something completely different, some humor from Babylon Bee.
Stay safe and at home friends….no toilet licking or fishing in croc infested waters!
