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.”

From the excellent satiriical site Babylon Bee
QUOTE
WASHINGTON, D.C.—In his opening statement at Trump's impeachment trial, Rep. Adam Schiff reminded the Senate of their solemn duty and the gravity of just what it is they will be discussing at the trial.


Schiff warned that if Trump is not impeached, the American people may have a chance to tamper with the next election.

"If President Trump is not impeached, the American people might get a say in who is president," Schiff said gravely. "We simply can't allow that to happen. We must diligently defend our electoral process against electoral outcomes we do not like. If that means seizing power through a sham impeachment trial, so be it."

"When the Founders wrote that founding document thing, they never imagined there would be electoral outcomes that Democrats did not agree with."

Democrats also said they even have hard evidence that the 2016 election was compromised by Republicans voting for Trump.

"We know this horrible outcome could happen, because it's already happened once before."

QUOTE
NEW YORK—Presidential hopeful Michael Bloomberg acquired his first supporter today, Bloomberg reports. The man, Tom Kenny of the East Village, was purchased for a hefty $1.7 billion, which he claims was a bargain.


It all started when Kenny heard one of Bloomberg’s many brilliant ads on the radio. “I’ve always loved the guy,” Kenny said while being frisked by a police officer. “I’ve also always loved Big Gulps too, though, so there’s that, but I was just so convinced by the ad.” The ad began by listing some of Mayor Bloomberg’s many accomplishments, but then quickly moved to offering citizens a large sum of cash in return for full-fledged support of the candidate in the 2020 presidential race.

When Kenny arrived at the big investment bank to cash in on his vote, he was surprised to find that nobody else had shown up to collect. However, he knew from his studies in college that this gave him a tremendous advantage. “They offered me 50 million,” Kenny claimed, shaking his head. “I said, ‘50 billion and we’ve got ourselves a deal.'” Kenny admits he may have aimed a little high, but was glad to exit the bank with a $1.7 billion check in his hand.

Elizabeth Warren chimed in on the issue, claiming she will tax the sale at 100% on her first day as president. The task may prove more difficult for Warren than it seems, though, since Kenny has already blown at least half of the money on luxury jets and Yeezys.

Good News for the Australian Film Industry

A sequel to the award-winning "Silence of the Lambs" is to be made locally. Retired boxer Jeff Fenech is the surprise director, and the putative title is "Shut up, ewes".

The jewish quarterback
The coach had put together the perfect team for the Chicago Bears. The only thing that was missing was a good quarterback. He had scouted all the colleges and even the Canadian and European Leagues, but he couldn't find a ringer who could ensure a Super Bowl win.

Then one night while watching CNN he saw a war-zone scene in the West Bank . In one corner of the background, he spotted a young Israeli soldier with a truly incredible arm. He threw a hand-grenade straight into a 15th story window 100 yards away.

KABOOM!

He threw another hand-grenade 75 yards away, right into a chimney.

KA-BLOOEY!

Then he threw another at a passing car going 90 mph.

BULLS-EYE!

"I've got to get this guy!" Coach said to himself. "He has the perfect arm!"

So, he brings him to the States and teaches him the great game of football.

And the Bears go on to win the Super Bowl.

The young man is hailed as the great hero of football, and when the coach asks him what he wants, all the young man wants is to call his mother.

"Mom," he says into the phone, "I just won the Super Bowl!"

"I don't want to talk to you, the old woman says."You are no longer my son!"

"I don't think you understand, Mother," the young man pleads. "I've won the greatest sporting event in the world. I'm here among thousands of my adoring fans."

"No! Let me tell you!" his mother retorts. "At this very moment, there are gunshots all around us. The neighborhood is a pile of rubble. Your two brothers were beaten within an inch of their lives last week, and I have to keep your sister in the house so she doesn't get bashed!"

The old lady pauses, and then tearfully says, "I will never forgive you for making us move to Chicago!
