Someone sent this to me. I wouldn't give it too high of a mark for funniness, but it definitely reminds me of some threads on DDF...


ABBOTT AND COSTELLO’S ‘WHO’S ON FIRST’ ……updated version… 2021

Bud: ‘You can’t come in here!’
Lou: ‘Why not?’
Bud: ‘Well because you’re unvaccinated.’
Lou: ‘But I’m not sick.’
Bud: ‘It doesn’t matter.’
Lou: ‘Well, why does that guy get to go in?’
Bud: ‘Because he’s vaccinated.’
Lou: ‘But he’s sick!’
Bud: ‘It’s alright. Everyone in here is vaccinated.’
Lou: ‘Wait a minute. Are you saying everyone in there is vaccinated?’
Bud: ‘Yes.’
Lou: ‘So then why can’t I go in there if everyone is vaccinated?’
Bud: ‘Because you’ll make them sick.’
Lou: ‘How will I make them sick if I’m NOT sick and they’re vaccinated.’
Bud: ‘Because you’re unvaccinated.’
Lou: ‘But they’re vaccinated.’
Bud: ‘But they can still get sick.’
Lou: ‘So what does the vaccine do?’
Bud: ‘It vaccinates.’
Lou: ‘So vaccinated people can’t spread covid?’
Bud: ‘Oh no. They can spread covid just as easily as an unvaccinated person.’
Lou: ‘I don’t even know what I’m saying anymore. Look. I’m not sick.
Bud: ‘Ok.’
Lou: ‘And the guy you let in IS sick.’
Bud: ‘That’s right.’
Lou: ‘And everybody in there can still get sick even though they’re vaccinated.’
Bud: ‘Certainly.’
Lou: ‘So why can’t I go in again?’
Bud: ‘Because you’re unvaccinated.’
Lou: ‘I’m not asking who’s vaccinated or not!’
Bud: ‘I’m just telling you how it is.’
Lou: ‘Nevermind. I’ll just put on my mask.’
Bud: ‘That’s fine.’
Lou: ‘Now I can go in?’
Bud: ‘Absolutely not?’
Lou: ‘But I have a mask!’
Bud: ‘Doesn’t matter.’
Lou: ‘I was able to come in here yesterday with a mask.’
Bud: ‘I know.’
Lou: So why can’t I come in here today with a mask? ….If you say ‘because I’m unvaccinated’ again, I’ll break your arm.’
Bud: ‘Take it easy buddy.’
Lou: ‘So the mask is no good anymore.’
Bud: ‘No, it’s still good.’
Lou: ‘But I can’t come in?’
Bud: ‘Correct.’
Lou: ‘Why not?’
Bud: ‘Because you’re unvaccinated.’
Lou: ‘But the mask prevents the germs from getting out.’
Bud: ‘Yes, but people can still catch your germs.’
Lou: ‘But they’re all vaccinated.’
Bud: ‘Yes, but they can still get sick.’
Lou: ‘But I’m not sick!!’
Bud: ‘You can still get them sick.’
Lou: ‘So then masks don’t work!’
Bud: ‘Masks work quite well.’
Lou: ‘So how in the heck can I get vaccinated people sick if I’m not sick and masks work?’
Bud: ‘Third base.’
No idea what this has to do with the original "Who's on first" skit other than the participants' names?

Wow. We really need to reward people who correctly predicted things by increasing their influence and "punish" people who were grossly wrong by reducing their influence on future decision making

Let's start with this:

If we add in those with natural immunity -those who had covid- is it really only D states that are protected?
What's most important is the number of people with immunity with includes infected, vaccinated, and both. I have no way to know if this is the case, but if previously infected people in blue states are more likely to get vaccinated than in red states that could lead to more vaccinations with the same immunity rate.

I assume at this point you both agree there are more people immune in Blue states?

I sure hope no one from DDF is making policy decisions (one way or the other) :)

I love this because each camp will interpret it the opposite way.

This is slightly long, but I found it to be well-written, honest, and pretty balanced, something sorely lacking in most media these days. @biobook what do you think?

Most of it sounds pretty rational but might drive behaviors/choices that data will show is in the interest of public safety. IOW I don’t see how many people who have already made up their vaccine-hesitancy mind up will be swayed by this article.

COVID getting America to address its obesity/soda/fast-food problem is a pipe dream.

Looking around the frum community, Covid has had the opposite effect.

Not just the frum community. I think it may be more pronounced in people who took Covid more seriously and therefore had more restricted (bodily and geographical) movement.

And once again I'll push play on my CD. When you lie by omission, or exaggerate the positive and diminish the negatives in the interest of public health, people will lose trust. This will be branded as "vaccine skepticism" or whatever by many pro vaxxers, yet it will almost certainly be more influential in getting people to vaccinate than anything published by those self-same pro vaxxers who think they are doing the public by exaggerating the benefits and diminishing the risks. I do think he could have been a bit clearer about his conclusions that virtually everyone should get vaccinated.
