"Typhoid Mary" is obsolete

I propose "Covid Karen", (apologies to anyone named Karen) having just had to deal with one.

15. Terry can be a woman's name too.

Better to go with a name that's more unequivocally male.

6. How many of us even know about typhoid, or smallpox?

Even malaria is uncommon now, at least in the US. Most of us can't fathom how lucky we are to live in the time of modern medicine, and advanced medical research.

Before World War II nobody knew what penicillin was. Many Allied soldiers' lives were saved by penicillin, who otherwise would have died from infected wounds. The rapid distribution of antibiotics (including penicillin and others) since the 1950s has made a difference in all of our lives. The medical breakthroughs that have come along during the baby boomers' lifetimes is astounding. Yay science!

11. Spot-on and no doubt


many of these COVID-19 anti-vaxxers were inoculated against these deadly diseases without any complaint.

I agree with your last sentence- Three cheers for science!

13. Covid Carrie scans better

But how about choosing a neutral name...Covid Kim or another androgynous name?

Besides, Cathys had it bad enough in the sixties with that damn "chatty" doll...

14. Ha! My pastor used that very term this past Sunday.

 

And followed it up with "if anyone has a concern about that, you can talk with my manager" as he pointed upwards.
