This weekend, a friend on Facebook wrote about a sweatshirt that said MILWAUKEE and had a built in bottle opener at the waistband. Clever, yes? Think of the dental work saved by not having to crack a cuspid to open a Hasenpheffer Incorporated lager with your mouth.
Her story reminded me of a pair of Reef brand flip flops I bought last Fall. I purchased them on Amazon, and when they arrived, I was disgusted to see that there was a bottle opener on the BOTTOM OF THE SANDAL. Who on earth thought it was a good idea to open a beer with the bottom of a shoe? Maxwill Not-so-Smart?
The world is in a scandalous upheaval of fear and worry and anxiety and panic and changing behavior and destroying business and stopping travel and quarantining entire regions and hoarding toilet paper and making homemade hand sanitizer to protect against a virus.
The same people open beer with a dog poop, cigarette stub, chewing gum, rat hair, puddle water covered sandal.
States from Maine to California are demonizing healthy, "under"vaccinated children and putting them on permanent "quarantine" from the rest of their peers by the removal of religious exemptions and the strangling of the medical exemption and doctors' ability to write them. Fear is out of proportion to the danger. That's not to say Corona virus is benign. If an elderly loved one dies from it, then it was a deadly epidemic for your family.
The world has flipped.
