Re: The New Joke Thread

Was going to hoist the yellow Q flag, you know, because of this COVID-19 thingy and stay-at-home no visitors instructions. My wife said no.

Because it's only Quarantine if its in the Quarante province of France.
Otherwise it's just Sparkling Isolation.

Re: The New Joke Thread

Technically... it's only quarantine if it's in Venice, as that is the origin of the term "quarantina" - meaning, in the local dialect, 40 days (in isolation) as that's what they used to make ships wait before unloading passengers or cargo.

It's been 10 days now.....what the FAAARK is it going to be like in a month...???

Yeah? Be that as it may, but my version is funny.

Re: The New Joke Thread

To the people who bought 20 bottles of soap, leaving none of the shelves for others, you do realise that to stop getting Coronavirus, you need other people washing their hands too.
---
To those who are complaining about the quarantine period and curfews, just remember that your grandparents were called to war, you are being called to sit on the couch and watch Netflix. You can do this.

Re: The New Joke Thread

*Breaking News!* - Apparently the first person in Melbourne has died because of the Coronavirus.
In his house they found 1000 cans of food, 50 kilos of pasta, 80 kilos of rice, 300 toilet rolls and 50L of hand sanitiser which he had panic purchased from the supermarket and stock piled "just in case".

The whole lot collapsed and buried him.
