What are some creative (mis-)uses of the terms Covid and Covid-19? (see details)

Asked by Yellowdog (11008points) 1 month ago

The terms Covid and Covid 19 are everywhere.

I Mean Everywhere!

I am starting to hear them coupled with words in my head where they do not belong. That’s because, I think, this ever-present word sounds as if it could mean anything.

Can you come up with some sentences or phrases which, although are not proper uses of the terms Covid and Covid-19, sound like something real?

Humor welcome, but I think the best examples sound like something real.

For instance,

“All the photographs on that wall were taken with a Covid-19 35mm camera..”

“Before automobile headlights were invented, most early automobiles and buggies featured Covid lamps”

“Many middle-eastern dishes are better prepared with Covid rice, which is not available in many parts of the world”

The largest Covid lizard was found just outside of Flagstaff, Arizona on mid July, 1980. It was 37 inches long, nose to tail

The Covid-19 was launched into space on June 11, 1989 and was the first of its kind.

If you don’t mind, when you come home, would you mind picking up some Covid bread at the store?

(Anything that you can come up with that sounds good… )

Bigg’s weapon of choice is the Covid-19, an ultra light-weight handgun that makes no sound when shot and is also super powerful and accurate. As a spy, he loves the Covid-19 as he can infiltrate virtually anywhere with it. It basically makes his dream as a real life James Bond come true.

Bigg’s codename is also COVID, so that everyone in the Agency knows that “this is the guy with the Covid-19”.

@Yellowdog, I can’t believe I’m the only one who has given you a GQ. I think the question is semi-brilliant and shows a playful side of you that we seldom see around here.
