Yeah, we could make a video - maybe it would go viral!

Ooh, I should have seen that coming!  Darn, "bacto" is harder to work with.  Camels maybe. 

A friend came down ill today
He couldn't decide it was viro or bac.
So I watched to see
But before died he
Said he knew "I know" but went "ack"!

Ah, can't win them all...

Funny you'd mention "ack" - I was just watching a video about Mars Attacks! ACK ACK!

Well, fresh milk right out of the cow may have supplied some immune system education.

That is a felony now.  Unpasturized milk is Satan.

Sorry, both of you seem accident prone.  Maybe stay laying down (prone).

Hell, I had to milk the damned cow every morning for years. If the feds don't like it I can always ask Trump for a pardon.

The storm troopers like to invade disobedient dairies.  So unless you are milking the cow, you are clear.

Not exactly a dairy - we only had the one cow. Sometimes I'd be milking one set of teats while her calf was sucking the other pair of teats.

Not the dairy of Anne Frank.

BBC News, CBC News, Reuters, AP... I can't stand most American news coverage because the website wants to shove ten ads down my throat before I can get anything, or the coverage is presented in conclusions rather than in data, or the site launches videos without my clicking on them, or they lead with something unforgivably sensationalist that's completely unwarranted by the news they're about to deliver, or they just SHOUT HEADLINES AT YOU IN ALL CAPS!!

Newspapers are a mixed bag -- assuming there's not a limit of three articles per month and everything else is behind a paywall in the first place.  Our local paper functions as a house organ for the state GOP anyway, and they're not afraid of editorializing on the front page, so I don't waste my time there.  I'll occasionally peek at my home town paper to see what's going on in my old stomping grounds.

And TV news is for weather emergencies only anymore.

Mainly, if I see a news item that I want to follow up on, I hop on duckduckgo and search for its originalmost source(s).

I watch on TV.  And always have an alternative channel when the commercials arrive.  And I have ad-blocker on the computer.  Some sites refuse to let me see their content.  But there are always others.  Still, I never view Faux News...
