The COVID-19 vaccine is rolling out to the general public slowly but surely. However, with increased availability has come increased demand. Because of this, people have been having a hard time getting the vaccine. Even NATIONAL TREASURE Conan O’Brien.
Let’s be honest, we don’t know for sure that Conan himself is having a hard time getting the vaccine. This is a bit, but you know that. The best jokes contain at least a little bit of truth. This one in particular not only contains elements of truth but touches on a problem that many Americans are facing.
It would almost be hard to laugh at this were it not so heightened. Conan not only doesn’t find his name listed under “National Treasure,” a moniker he has gifted himself, he finds Stephen Colbert listed instead. It’s that self-deprecating touch that takes a touchy subject and makes it palatable.
Soon, hopefully within the next year, jokes about the struggles surrounding COVID-19 will be a thing of the past. For now, we have people like Conan, helping us make light of a frustrating situation.
