Not a Christmas Present Anybody Would Want

 Via Tengrain, we have the disconcerting tale of Christmas travel during this plague year.  It's possible that the recent spike in COVID-19 cases resulted from Thanksgiving travel, so an uptick in travel mere weeks before a major vaccine rollout seems ill-advised.  In speaking with my mother, I put it this way, "Hold out for Easter."  Giving the 'rona as a Christmas present just when there seems to be a light at the end of the tunnel seems ghoulish, a wicked twist out of a 'Twilight Zone' episode, albeit a stupid one.

 Tengrain, being a snarky fellow, put it in snarky terms, the only appropriate terms for this tragifarcical age we live in: Gonna make “Grandma Got Run-Over By A Reindeer” look like a matinee as the nation’s MeMaws all keel over dead by new years eve.

 The appropriate response is, you got it, snarky:


Grandma got infected by the 'rona,

At the family dinner Christmas Eve

Cousin Rudy don't believe in masking,

And wipes his goddamn boogers on his sleeve.


These people really deserve to get coal in their stockings.   Can't they defer their gratification by a mere three or four months?
