F.37: "Peteum Defeatum", PETE BUTTIGIEG
Baseball: "The only sport that involves reading made-up sign language while staring directly at someone's dick."

Last Week Tonight put up a page about their purposely bullshit Coronavirus remedy, a bottle of silver-based Werewolf Solution. Note, this seems to be unrelated to the other Werewolf Solution, from Waverly Films.

LWT's story on coronavirus.

Here is the full Vietnamese PSA song about coronavirus.
It was based off of this song, by the same artists: Ghen. It's about being jealous when you're significant other is not with you, because you love them so much. I can't really make out most of the verses, and its lyrical quality is questionable, but goddamn it's catchy. I've had the song in my collection in the last couple of years or so. So you can imagine my joy and hilarity that it's been repurposed as a PSA about the coronavirus, and having discovered that on this show of all places.

That Philly Phanatic redesign reminded me of the 1977 incident when Marvel was forced to change Howard the Duck's appearance to stave off a lawsuit from Disney. Details here.
