Time for a few distractions from That Thing, lighthearted diversions from scary stuff that competes for attention as birds sing, perennials poke out and lawns thicken.
Surely we can respect a deadly threat beyond our bunkers and still appreciate witty riffs on the bizarre absurdity of it all.
So these items are shared as a check-up on your sense of humor:
► "Does anyone know how long toilet paper will last if you freeze it?" -- Alistair Wilson, Birmingham (on Facebook)
► A sheltering-in-place baby boom will bring a generation of quaranteens next decade.
► Even those who aren't faithful give up a lot for Lent this year -- sports, bargoing, dining out, gym workouts, school.
► We're living our teen years in reverse -- nagging our parents about going out.
► "No, we are not booking a cruise with our stimulus check." -- Wife to husband in syndicated editorial page cartoon by Dave Granlund
