Friday Funnies: Covid-19 playlist!

Hello Posse!

This is a serious and sad time in the world at the moment. The current pandemic is taking lives and people should get the facts from medical professionals and precautions should be taken to prevent the spread of the virus. Please see the Wednesday Whatever blog for information and links from the World Heath Organization and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.

However, is also at time like these that we must keep our spirits up. It can be beneficial to combat fear and stress with humor. Because of this, I thought we could use a good chuckle or two. So let's get right to it.

The Playlist:

1. Sweet Caroline - Neil Diamond

  • Neil Diamond: touching hands . . .

  • CDC: No, don't touch hands!

  • Neil Diamond: Reaching out . . .

  • CDC: Please avoid contact!

  • Neil Diamond: Touching yooooouuuuu!

  • CDC: We are doomed!

2. I Want to Hold Your Hand - The Beatles

  • John Lennon: Yeah you've got that somethin', I think you'll understand.

  • CDC: It's Covid-19.

  • John Lennon: I wanna hold your hand

  • CDC: That is not advisable!

  • Paul McCartney: I wanna hold your hand

  • CDC: No! Just, no!

3. Touch Me - The Doors

  • Jim Morrison: Come on, come one, come on now touch me baby.

  • CDC: No please don't. Touching can spread the virus.

  • Jim Morrison: Can't you see that I'm not afraid

  • CDC: That is beside the point!

  • Jim Morrison: What was that promise that you made?

  • CDC: We would suggest to promise to wash your hands well with soap and water!

4. Hand in My Pocket - Alanis Morissette

  • Alanis: And what it all comes down to is that everything is gonna be fine, fine, fine

  • CDC: If everyone takes proper precautions we should all be fine . . .

  • Alanis: I got one hand in my pocket

  • CDC: That is great. Limit contact with others as much as possible

  • Alanis: and the other one is giving a high five


5. Hot Blooded - Foreigner

  • Kelly Hansen: Well, I'm hot blooded. Check it and see.

  • CDC: We would advise seeing a medical professional if you feel ill.

  • Kelly Hansen: I've got a fever of a hundred and three

  • CDC: Dear God! Code Red! Call an ambulance, WHY ARE YOU STILL SINGING?!

6. Mambo No.5 - Lou Bega

  • LOU BEGA: A little bit of Monica in my life

  • CDC: Limiting exposure to others is a good idea at this . . .

  • LOU BEGA: A little bit of Erica by my side

  • CDC: Wait, what about Monica? Did you at least wash your hands?

  • LOU BEGA: A little bit of Rita is all I need

  • CDC: We really recommend limit your exposure to people right now!

  • LOU BEGA: A little bit of Tina is what I see

  • CDC: What?! LOU! Are you even listeni . . .

  • LOU BEGA: A little bit of Sandra in the sun

  • CDC: You're all hopeless! We give up!

Keep looking for the humor every day! I hope these jokes gave you a chuckle or at least put a smile on your face!

Stay well my friends!
