I saw one that said something like, "At school today, two kids got expelled and one teacher got fired for drinking on the job." :lol:

Well, my house is in day 1 of remote learning (we've been on Spring Break since the whole thing started) and I think our school teacher (my wife) is going to have a nervous breakdown...

I just took a break from work and went to check on how things were going, and apparently we are no longer laughing at all of last week's memes about the difficulties of distance learning.

Not a meme, but worth a laugh... The Mayor of a small northern Kentucky town goes off on his constituency...

I’d post some videos, memes, etc., that my old submarine buddies and I are trading but they are definitely NOT suitable for, well, anyone with a scintilla of couth.

Pete, the page title has a word that triggers the language censor (which gives us "doody"), so the link won't work. You might try "Tiny URL" to avoid the censors.

COVID First World Problems . . .

No.1: My home office desk is right beneath the return air grille. Every time that the A/C comes on, I have to put on my hoodie.

No.2: I remote into my office computer from my home PC. On my home computer, the cursor that I'm seeing on my office computer doesn't blink. I hate that.

Good thing he doesn't have a "bedside manor [sic]" -- he'd have to have a might large bed for that!

Good stuff. Add in about 20 variations on the f-bomb and it would be a normal day at sea. :-D
