chuck norris kills coronavirus
Chuck Norris returns from super secret special ops mission to save humanity from the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). I knew Chuck wouldn’t let us down.

A note: I know there’s someone reading this, thinking: COVID-19 is no laughing matter. And, you’re right. It’s not. But Chuck Norris, defender of all things worth defending, is. Well, not Chuck Norris. Chuck Norris jokes. Chuck Norris jokes are a laughing matter. And, if there’s one thing I will put my faith in until the day I die, it’s (1) Chuck Norris, and (2) Chuck Norris jokes.

So, despite what’s taking place, find a reason to laugh. Laughter is good for your immune system. Stress isn’t. Also, go for a walk. Get some clean air.
