That song alone is reported to produce a slow and painful death.
No more two-meter rule! Joyful time for pickpockets, backstabbers and bum grabbers!
Mediterranean countries are back to hugging with passion! So much passion that sometimes group hugs turn into orgies. Meanwhile, Brits are delighted to be back to keeping 10 meters distance from each other in the UK. As one man from Leatherhead said, ‘The two-meter rule was too close and infringed in our personal space’.
Track & Trace apps are no longer needed but still used to avoid unpleasant encounters with boring relatives and annoying neighbours.

A new illness is sweeping through all nations; it’s called CORONA NOSTALGIA:
· When we could drink, stuff ourselves with food and spend money like there was no tomorrow (because there might not have been a tomorrow).
· When couch potatoes were considered thoughtful and heroic, now we are back to being lazy slobs.
· When drinking alone was thought to be conscientious and considerate, today we’re just drunk losers without any friends.
· Thanks to the vaccine’s success, we can now do things we never really wanted to do in the first place. Like ‘Taking it to the Next Level’, when we can’t even cope with this one!
To help with the symptoms, the government has declared the 23rd of March as ‘Lockdown Remembrance Day’. Staying at home will be mandatory. ‘Taking it to the Next Level’ will be a criminal offence.
