Not so much anti-vaxxer, more pro-virus.
 
2021-10-22 3:52:15 PM  
I believe the correct term for that is "super-spreader event."
 
2021-10-22 3:56:46 PM  
Maybe they'll all shove some hot chicken up their ass thinking it'll cure them?
 
2021-10-22 4:39:10 PM  
Thanks for the warning. Fortunately, I should be safe since Opryland is on the other side of town.

I'm declaring this to be a "no bones" day and going back to bed.

Sounds like a gay ole time at the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center. I hope that gathering breaks attendance records, I'll be in California.

The conference is "coming straight out of heaven" ?

Well, at least they'll have an easy way getting there while they kill one another.

Fortunately my parents moved out of TN when I was 2, 57 years ago. I'm much better for it.

I actually live Nashville. It's a lot of fun. But yeah, these assholes can eat a bag of dicks.

I bet that after these people leave Nashville, the place will smell like ivermectin for months afterwards.

So you're saying Kid Rock will be in Nashville all weekend?
 
2021-10-22 6:02:28 PM  
I hope they all Find Out, after they finish farking around.

Someone get in the rafters and flick COVID boogers at the plebes.
 
2021-10-22 6:03:27 PM  
This will be like a chicken pox party, but for idiots.

/though people who still do chicken pox parties are idiots too since there's a vaccine for it now

I stayed at that hotel 10 years ago.

Whew, close call.
 
2021-10-22 6:07:04 PM  
Hey! Nashville's a good time.  You should definitely go there when the pandemic is over.

Not the Gaylord Opryland Resort though. It sucks and it's expensive.

I'm going to an antivaxxer bachelorette party in Nashville already.

Opryland?

Sign said Opryland Left, so we turned around and went home.

Charlene Bollinger calls Tennessee an ideal place to host an event like this one. She says the state has recently become home to many conservative pundits who have questioned aspects of the COVID-19 vaccine, as well as vaccine mandates.

I couldn't agree more.
Home of country music and the heard of Trumper-land.

"If we're superspreaders, we're superspreaders of the truth," Charlene Bollinger says. "We have countless testimonies of people that are alive today because of our work, and this is straight from heaven. God has put us on this Earth for such a time as this."

Trumper-land?

Tennessee, yes. Nashville, no.

The state legislature and governor hate Nasville because we are so much more liberal and progressive.

COVID actually gets sh*t done. There is a "Herman Cain" award for a reason.

The Chiefs are playing the Titans this week, too.  At the beginning of football season, the NFL fined Tennessee $350,000 for Covid protocol violations, so the state has a legacy.  Just let Mahomes stay healthy and the A.V.ers can sneeze on each other as much as they want.

look for a spike in hospital admissions and sob stories about how people wished they had gotten vaccinated next week about this time.

the following week will probably be worse.
 
2021-10-22 6:40:21 PM  
I'm just gonna say: y'all should come and meet me at Midwest Furfest. Vaccines are required and everybody will be masked!

The Herman Cain Awards are a constant reminder of how FEW morons end up actually Properly Finding Out.    Myself and the GOP Blood God are feeling like COVID is letting us down.   Too many plague rats are recovering and continuing their relentless campaign to destroy all of us (and cheating their God).

I feel for the Southwest flight attendants this weekend.  Nashville is a Hub for the airline.  Imagine having several asshats scream at you for trying to enforce COVID requirements on your flight then your ant-vaxxer pilot say they are right.

I'm old enough for that to be proper parenting when I was a kid.

Antivaxxer convention? During a pandemic?
Please proceed.

Sadly, I think Derrick Henry is going to run the Chiefs like shirt through a goose.
