Australian astrophysicist Dr. Daniel Reardon had to be admitted to the hospital to have four magnets removed from his nose, which got stuck there while he worked on inventing a necklace that warns you when you touch your face. "The doctors thought it was quite funny," Reardon said.

Astrophysicist gets several magnets stuck up his nose while working on coronavirus device
"However, the academic realised the electronic part he had did the opposite �" and would only complete a circuit when there was no magnetic field present. “I accidentally invented a necklace that buzzes continuously unless you move your hand close to your face,” he said."

From one of my Fav satirical websites, Babylon Bee come some great headlines- don't even need o read the articles.

Headline " Government Accidentally Shuts Itself Down With Ban On Non-Essential Businesses "

QUOTE
WASHINGTON, D.C.—Congress has asked all non-essential businesses to limit their hours or close entirely for an undetermined amount of time.


But this shutdown mistakenly shut down the most non-essential entity of all: the government. For a brief period of time, all government in the United States was illegal, since it is completely non-essential to everything.

"Oops," said Senator Mitch McConnell. "We meant non-essential private businesses. Of course, the government is always essential, even when it's not doing anything or is making things worse."

Senators, congresspeople, and bureaucrats frantically rewrote the ban to include only businesses that actually produced something and not government agencies that just watched other people make stuff. Though they had dragged their feet on passing bills related to relieving the financial distress of the shutdown, they passed this revision in record speed, almost as quickly as they vote for pay raises for themselves.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi said she would have caught the mistake but had passed the ban in a hurry, saying, "We had to pass the ban to see what it did."


and "Toilet Paper Crisis Solved As Government Prints Trillions Of Fresh, Soft Dollar Bills "
QUOTE
The administration explained that, while it’s possible the money might help get things flowing again for people who are in need of a strong push financially, the more practical use will be for those who have run out of toilet paper: “As the economic stoppage causes the dollar’s value to take a dump, we see this as a great alternative to increasingly scarce toilet paper.”

The statement also included several best practices for making the most use out of each crisp, worthless dollar bill, and even some tips on precise folding techniques in order to avoid defacing the United States’ first president.

Irony no 2 from The Leaders

[quote]
Italy is one of those countries that have been hit the hardest by coronavirus. More than 12,000 patients have been registered and out of these 827 have died.

The European nation is currently on lockdown and during this time Pornhub has made its premium service free for Italians for a month.

The site shared a press release today, stating that it will donate all the earnings from the Modelhub platform to help Italy cope with the coronavirus outbreak.

The statement read, “Forza Italia, We love you! PornHub has decided to donate its percentage revenue from the ModelHub platform from March to help Italy during the outbreak. To help you during these weeks at home, for the whole months you can access PornHub Premium free of charge, with no need for using your credit card.”

Irony no 1. from ZH

QUOTE
Today in "not the Onion" news, a roundtable that was set up by the Council on Foreign Relations specifically to talk about "Doing Business Under Coronavirus" has been cancelled - due to the coronavirus. The meeting was scheduled for Friday of this week and it was cancelled due to the spread of the infection in NYC.

Though we have to say, if they didn't see this coming, we're not sure the roundtable would have held much value to begin with.

I guess Iranian Islamic scholars don't know about, much less believe in Karma, but thats what this one got.

From Summit news
QUOTE
Back in February, Hadi Al-Modarresi, who is based in Iran, said that the coronavirus outbreak was “undoubtedly an act of Allah that is divine punishment against the Chinese for their treatment, mockery, and disrespect towards Muslims and Islam,” reported MEMRI-TV.

“It is obvious that the spread of this virus is an act of Allah. How do we know this? The spread of the coronavirus began in China, an ancient and vast country, the population of which makes up one seventh of humanity,” said Al-Modarresi.

“More than a billion people live in that country. The authorities in that country are tyrannical and they laid siege to more than a million Muslims and placed them under house arrest. The journalists in that country began to mock the niqab of Muslim women and they forced Muslim men to eat pork and drink wine. Allah sent a disease upon them and this disease laid siege to 40 million [Chinese people]. The same niqab that they mocked has been forced upon them, both men and women, by Allah, by means of the state authorities and officials,” he added.

It is now being reported that Al-Modarresi has contracted coronavirus, meaning that Allah must obviously be punishing him for wrongdoing.

The scholar tweeted to his almost 1 million followers with a prayer to Muhammad and the revelation that “The health of His Eminence is in a marked improvement.”
