Actual Prime Minister Boris Johnson has finally given a reason why his Government’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic has been such a joke.
“Laughter is the best medicine,” he chuckled.
“This is a vicious disease, and so immediately we decided that we would only employ the best medicine to combat it.
“I had little Matty Hancock Google what the best medicine is, because you know how good teenagers are with computers.
“First result that came up: laughter. Laughter is the best medicine.
“That is is why our response to the pandemic has been such a joke. To keep everyone laughing and, through that laughter, receiving the best medicine.”
As part of this unusual strategy, the PM made sure that clowns like Dominic Raab and Priti Patel have been put in front of the public with regularity.
“I know. They’re hilarious aren’t they? It’s all part of the plan. Raab goes on television with his face and everyone starts laughing straight away, which must be really tremendous medicine.”
Finally, perhaps the most hilarious aspect of the Government COVID response, is Johnson himself – a parody of a Prime Minister.
However, despite the Government’s claims that laughter is the best medicine, many in the scientific community have begun to wonder if perhaps medicine is the best medicine and that we should adopt a more coherent, scientific approach to the pandemic.
“Well, it’s an interesting proposal,” said Boris.
“But, realistically, the only policy of any kind my Government and I can produce is a joke, so we’ll have to stick with that.”
