    Below is quote from business/news daily email I get...you cant make this stuff up!


    Students in Tuscaloosa, Alabama are playing a super fun game to see who can catch the coronavirus first, is a real sentence that I have to write apparently.

    A city council member told ABC News yesterday that students have been organizing “COVID Parties” as part of a game to intentionally infect each other with the virus.

    (Why can’t kids today engage with gold old-fashioned wholesome activities, like going down to the train tracks and poking a dead body?)

    City Councilor Sonya McKinstry said students are inviting guests who have COVID-19 to parties and trying to catch the virus from them, in what is presumably a weird sex thing.

    "They put money in a pot and they try to get COVID. Whoever gets COVID first gets the pot. It makes no sense," McKinstry said, describing the kids’ weird reverse tontine.

    Tuscaloosa Fire Chief Randy Smith confirmed that “yes, our children are idiots” at a City Council briefing on a coronavirus outbreak among the city’s young people.

    "We thought that was kind of a rumor at first," Smith told the council members. "We did some research. Not only do the doctors' offices confirm it but the state confirmed they also had the same information."

    Immediately after the meeting, the Tuscaloosa City Council passed an ordinance requiring people to wear face coverings when out in public, but unfortunately there’s no magic law that can stop kids from being idiots.

    Gotta Love the Fire Chief's quote !!!!!!!!!

    They probably think that COVID is an STD.

    I would be willing to bet you all the money in my pocket that this is not isolated to just Alabama.

    You notice the top football programs like Clemson and LSU appear to be passing the virus to the players to get them through it and not impact their season. Strategy or bad fortune? You decide

    Only in Alabama?

    There is a reason "Florida Man" has widespread national acclaim and is regularly in the news.

    And, we have the third largest population in America to increase our chances of that. We have a cross section of society here, not to mention a melting pot of escapees from the north.

    I agree -- Florida is such a diverse state it is the deep south, the Midwest, New York, New Jersey, the Caribbean and Latin America all housed under one roof. Florida has the best, and all the quirks, of all of those places and cultures/sub-cultures. Hence Florida man. And sometimes Florida Woman.

    Even though as Dave Barry says: in Florida we live in a festival of stupid", we still haven't made incest and rape legitimate forms of procreation.
