How weird is this: one of the search terms that people FREQUENTLY use to find this website is “fat jokes.” Uh, what? What did you just say? Fat jokes?
It turns out that way back in 2008 or 2009 I read an article in USA TODAY about fat jokes. It mentioned a couple of movies that are in essence two-hours of a single joke about fat people, and a few other tidbits. I just referenced the article, mentioned that I agree — fat jokes are not funny — and that was it. It was a short post.
So who could guess that now, a dozen years later people are still searching fat jokes.
Do me a favor. If you found this post because you’re interested in fat jokes, leave a comment and tell me more. Why are you interested? Do you hate jokes and want to leave negative comments? Do you want to find fat jokes that you can tell your friends. I’m so curious! Leave a comment.
The second topic of this rant is the Covid vaccine. Just get yours as soon as you’re able. They are fine. The data is conclusive. They are not iffy. They are not sketchy. We are not waiting to know if they are safe. WE ALREADY KNOW.
Data is just that. Data. It’s not an opinion. It’s not political. It’s not a gut feeling. It’s data. And the data on these COVID VACCINES is extremely robust. There’s a ton of it. And the data is very clear: the COVID vaccines are safe.
Yes, there are small numbers of people who have negative reactions. But statistically the numbers are approaching zero, and are not big news at all. Heck, they aren’t news at all. They are a blip.
So do yourself, your family…and your community! … a favor and get a shot as soon as you are able.
Ok…off the soapbox now. Thanks for tuning in.
