Trump's anus just unclenched a little
 
2020-04-09 2:55:03 PM  
Oh good.  I don't like the guy but I don't want him to die either.  Plus, now I can laugh at the "What were you supposed to do?" meme without feeling guilty anymore.
 
2020-04-09 3:09:51 PM  
Well, shiat.
 
2020-04-09 3:53:50 PM  
...fark...
 
2020-04-09 3:54:03 PM  
I can't believe he died.
 
2020-04-09 3:54:12 PM  
Hopefully he farking learns from it and changes his ways.
 
2020-04-09 3:54:27 PM  
Better luck next time, Darwin.
 
2020-04-09 3:54:46 PM  
Someone change the damned headline, he's not dead yet.

wealthy people may fare better in a pandemic

2020-04-09 3:55:37 PM  
Actually, he still is pining for the fjords.
 
2020-04-09 3:55:40 PM  
damn.
was really wanting the virus to win this one :-(
 
2020-04-09 3:55:59 PM  
You'll excuse me for being confused by the headline, as "pining for the fjords" was the shopkeeper's explanation for what the parrot was doing instead of being dead.
 
2020-04-09 3:56:01 PM  
Does anyone actually believes Boris Johnson says?
 
2020-04-09 3:56:29 PM  
Why can't we have nice things?

pining for the fjords


That does not mean what you think it means, tardedmitter.


For the rest of you: BoJo is out of ICU. He is not dead. He's getting better. He's not going on the cart.

Seriously. I was like "Damn that was quick!"

Although that would totally be typical for covid patients. :/

Well, he has like six kids, so that ship has missed the space station.
 
2020-04-09 4:00:06 PM  
Well, fark. That means he's going to not only leave the hospital, but tout his newly-acquired "herd immunity" as the right & proper way to handle COVID-19.

Good luck, UK. You're gonna need it.

Arkanaut: You'll excuse me for being confused by the headline, as "pining for the fjords" was the shopkeeper's explanation for what the parrot was doing instead of being dead.


You're correct.  The original line was used as an explanation for why the parrot appeared to be dead.  "He's not dead.  He's pining for the fjords".

Perhaps the intention was to imply that he was dead, and people were making up reasons why he was in fact not dead the whole time.  And now that it's clear he's not dead, we don't need to pretend the he is "pining".

In any case, it doesn't work.  The correct line, if you insist on a Python reference, should have been that, "he is not ready to get on the cart."

Know how I know you're not British?
 
2020-04-09 4:01:20 PM  
Damn.  I had high hopes.
 
2020-04-09 4:04:16 PM  
Good. I hope he and his peers take this more seriously now, resulting in fewer avoidable deaths.
 
2020-04-09 4:04:34 PM  
God dammit! Why do only the evil people get to live??
 
2020-04-09 4:05:26 PM  

Znuh: Hopefully he farking learns from it and changes his ways.


hahahaha...no.

Now that he seems to be out of the woods, he will double down on them:
IGM(privileged government-paid health care, so)FY!!
 
2020-04-09 4:05:58 PM  
So much salt for fark.
 
2020-04-09 4:06:01 PM  
His head looks like a piece of gum dropped on a barber shop floor.
 
2020-04-09 4:06:13 PM  
The good ones don't have to suffer what's to come.

How many times does it have to be pointed out that while his science advisers advocated herd immunity he was saying containment was far better?
Here he is over a month ago saying that while "some argue" for herd immunity "I think it is far better" to contain and slow the spread as much as possible.

If we know one thing about how his types work, that is NOT what will happen.

This will be used to show that the virus can be easily beaten.  And we have nothing to worry about.

"I still have four or five heart attacks left , you know?"

Darwin's hands are currently full with the olds who chain smoked and or ate nothing but fried foods for most of their lives.

Ten years older Boris would've been a goner. The guy looks like congestive heart failure.
 
2020-04-09 4:13:04 PM  
Should have the sad tag.
 
2020-04-09 4:14:08 PM  
Doesn't want to go on the cart, does he?
 
2020-04-09 4:14:18 PM  
Is he nailed to his perch?
 
2020-04-09 4:14:31 PM  
You know who will be claiming it was his magic drug shipment that saved him.

Except that might not fit either, because in that case, the poor guy feeling happy was murdered for convenience sake.

Well he's gonna die eventually.

This - it would be a catastrophe for him or Trump or Putin to die of this.
Their loonie followers would flip out and start civil wars.

Well now his has immunity they can cut the NHS funding by 75% before those dastardly poor, colours, and foreigners can waste the money with treatment instead of giving himself big tax cuts and payouts.
 
2020-04-09 4:24:15 PM  
I can't tell if he looks awful

But the parrot was in fact dead.

Yes, it does.
