The Delta Variant of COVID is a serious problem. With the release of vaccines, it seemed all but assured that the disease would be contained or even eradicated. Unfortunately, a bunch of people chose ignorance over science, the disease kept mutating, and now we have the Delta variant. Now, things may be further away from normal than they should be. We can trash talk to people who won’t get the vaccine all we want (and we will). Why not take things a step further?
On a new, online Daily Show segment, the correspondents do a little trash-talking of the Delta variant and it is surprisingly cathartic! Will it stop the deadly variant from spreading? No. Has it encouraged me to level insults of my own against the incredibly contagious disease as a means of distraction/coping?? Yes!
Let’s see. Ummm. Ooh, I got one.
Hey, Delta Variant, you wanna keep me from seeing my friends?? Who are you, 32 years of built-up social anxiety?!
Wait. Hold on. Lemme try again.
I’m supposed to be scared of the Delta variant?! Please! It’s an infectious disease, not the stress of achieving my career goals in an ever-changing entertainment market!
No. No, that’s no good. One more try.
The Delta Variant ain’t so scary! You want scary?! Try looking in the mirror and watching your hair slowly turn gray as age slowly but surely sends you back into the ground whence you came!
Ya know what? I’m just going to leave this to the folks at The Daily Show.
