Man staying alert for 0.125 micron-sized threat

A MAN is watching out for objects 400 times smaller than can be seen with the naked eye so as not to catch coronavirus. 

Tom Logan was warned to stay alert for COVID-19, the vanishingly tiny virion recognisable only by specialists using powerful electron microscopes, and is wheeling around suddenly in case it is sneaking up behind him.

Holding a jeweller’s loupe and a miniscule butterfly net, he said: “The Government advice to stay alert is absolutely spot on. That’s why I’m keeping my eyes peeled for this microscopic genome at all times.

“You see this grain of sand? Could be thousands on there. Tens of thousands. Even a dust mite’s like Ayers Rock to them. So staying alert is just common sense.

“If anyone catches it, when they’ve had that warning, well, can’t really blame it on anyone else can they? Not nearly alert enough.”

Booker then shielded his eyes from the sun, scanned the horizon, and satisfied there was no coronavirus in the area, returned inside.

The bits of the exit plan the Government hasn't mentioned yet

WITH a clear, common sense exit plan in place, things will gradually get back to normal. Right? Apart from these minor issues: 

You will be kept at work

Once you return to work, you will not be allowed to leave. The economy will soon be back on its feet thanks to the economic benefits of slavery. You will eat from the vending machines and your new wife is the Red Dwarf-obsessed IT support guy.

Kids run wild

Buoyed by the news that a real-life Lord of the Flies went fine, children will be set free to roam the country in ragged packs having adventures. In theory. In practice they will be all at home on devices, like now.

The cyborg initiative

In a project born in a Dominic Cummings ‘blue skies’ brainstorming session, all Britons will be converted into cyber-people immune to any virus apart from the ILOVEYOU worm. Download your mind onto your desktop and back it up on a USB if you want any chance of remembering who you once were.

Walking is the future

According to Boris Johnson, walking will become everyone’s new commute so now everyone must walk like frustrated motorists. Get right up someone’s arse all the time, walk in front of people randomly and give them the finger, and ‘park’ badly by lying spreadeagled on the pavement for a nap.


Like PPE, the NHS is single-use. After this it’s done. It’ll be replaced with a private insurance system that will be perfectly affordable as long as you never get ill.

Feudalism and serfdom

Idiots criticise feudalism as a model for a modern society. But what if you owned your own castle? You maybe could, and B&Q could start selling MDF castellations.
