All is not lost, Jan 27

There's still hope and we need to be a good laugh, or a "postal" like we say here

Many thanks, Persio and Mervyn

The Festival started in 2020!

And you thought nose swabs were bad! Jan 28

News flash...
I have learned that China is conducting anal tests for a faster and more accurate detection of the virus.
That is no wonder population are being so irritated lately. Possible side effects?

... on people with American Presidents' names.

And, unless it's Marlon Brando with a big knob of good butter, I wouldn't agree to that.

Those tests in full Jan 28

Irritability, intolerance, and unwarranted rudeness - these are all potential side effects of China's new testing scheme, apparently.

Soooooo glad that I'm not in the country! No, no doctor I have seen there looked even remotely like Brando.

That would be great, Zibow, but ... Jan 28

This just in...

Health authorities in Mauritius announced this morning they intend to follow suit behind China, implementing the very same scheme as of tomorrow. Testing will be mandatory for all residents on the island.

It was rumoured that Ryan Gosling and Keira Knightley had offered to travel to Mauritius to carry out the tests on women and men respectively as a gesture to sweeten the pill somewhat, but unfortunately this was just fake news.

Lol Jan 28

Honestly, you girls🤣

A friend who's done it tells me the nose/mouth test is seriously unpleasant as you have to stick it in a really long way (although some people here may be used to that), and all Welsh nurses are young, slim and hot, so frankly I'd be happy to unlock the back door.

@Chris - In that case ... Jan 28

... you should zoom down to the health centre and see if there's any chance of a "Chinese burn" alternative. Maybe they'll have a back-door queue if it's crowded.

... I personally wouldn't mind; the knob of butter still stands, though. And Bruce could teach me some cool moves, after the procedure.

It's shocking! Jan 28

I wonder what they will do next? Use bleach on the rectal swab?
They lock people at home and apply this corporal punishment.
It's shocking!

Are bottoms a source of amusement in all cultures?

They are, Chris. May I refer you back to my Carnivalisation post on this very thread, p.51?

I think it's a, or even "the" defining feature of what makes us humans: all brothers and sisters, bonded by our love of a cheap laugh, from childhood onwards and upwards (also, backwards).

In my culture, I really don't know ... Jan 28

... as we generally amuse ourselves in private.

And PLF, I'm afraid butter is too Western. We prefer peanut oil. But since Bruce is always greased up, he might have his personal pick when it comes to smoothing the procedure.

Governments often introduce unpopular measures by the back door. Nothing new there. 😁

Better hope he doesn’t choose crunchy peanut butter
