Well gee, Juanagger, I'll leave it to Z to respond to your overly flattering compliments, he's such a humble fellow we can be sure you've really embarrassed him this time :D

Also, just love the way you always look for the comedy in a situation, it's really edifying, at this rate you might even get _me_ to be humble.  I know, I know, <shucks> don't mention it brother...

Whilst we're on the topic of edifying comedy to lighten our collective load, Andrew Dickens coins a phrase I just  know  you're going to chuckle over …

Gat any Facial Justice Warriors down in Mozambiquador where yu from, muh nagger?

Have at 'em wid dis tasty deeish:

   In a world of poverty and injustice, mask-hating Facial Justice Warriors have finally found a cause worth fighting for

      With limited time and passion to give to causes, it’s crucial we choose ours well. So well done Facial Justice Warriors for ignoring other issues until a fight worth fighting came along – being asked to occasionally wear a mask 

      Bob Geldof once spoke of compassion fatigue: the notion that we have limited emotional resources when it comes to ‘doing our bit’ for a good cause. We can’t help everyone all the time, so it’s important to choose your battles wisely.

      This is why I salute the Facial Justice Warriors (FJWs), a term I have coined for those people tirelessly and selflessly campaigning against rarely-enforced laws requiring them to wear a face mask for a few minutes if they happen to be, say, in a shop or on a bus, in an attempt to slow the spread of Covid-19. 

      While others have spent their precious energy campaigning against things like poverty, crime and injustice, the FJWs have bided their time, waiting for a really serious issue to trigger their activism. And now they have it: an annoying dress code.

      We’ve had anti-mask marches, we’ve had Bible-quoting mask truthers marching through supermarkets (warning: the truth may differ from truther to truther), we’ve had a wave of maskless selfies from brave FJWs risking the wrath of apathetic teenage shop assistants and, of course, we’ve had the FJW online battalions warning us of the #plandemic.

      And what warriors they are
