Concerning humour becoming sicker and sicker in Germany every day ...

There is a political satire party in Germany which really made it to gain one seat in the European Parliament some years ago: "Die Partei" (= "THE Party" !).
They are sometimes indeed serious in their work in this parliament, rather left-orientated and sometimes funny-cynical against some ideas of right-wing parties like the AfD, sometimes "really cruel" against neo-nazi-parties.
As you can imagine, the self-confidence of satirists who succeeded in establishing a successful party of political satirists in Germany is now almost boundless without limits.

I would not recommend to elect this party - because I am too serious for them - but they are really successful in the idealistic youth or within students and schoolkids by their funny slogans and their "lovely ideas" in posters, which sometimes surprisingly appear in streets or newspapers without having any election campaigns in Germany.

This is one of their latest posters:

"Hand in Hand against the Coronavirus - Join our human chain on the 30th of February! - Elect THE Party - Enthusiasm which will infect you !"

It is also the only political party in Germany which is fast enough to print posters within one day against posters of other parties:

But back to fun in times of corona:

"Wuthering Heights"
by Emily Brontë

'Cathy and Heathcliff race across the blighted moors
in their desperate search for some elusive toilet tissue…'
Heathcliff thinks he has seen a sign there(!) up the road…
“Make haste, Cathy! Ere it is all sold! Run, Cathy, run!!”
Cathy runs...

What!?!? Australia's gonna run outta beer !?!? Say it's not so Phlebas !!

I can't see it happening,it would cause considerable distress, and I understand that bottle shops will remain open even if we move to a higher level of lockdown. I was in one yesterday stocking up and there was plenty of beer, though some items were more scarce than usual. Some brewers may convert to making disinfectants for the short term.

As the famous song says:

But there's nothing so lonesome, so morbid or drear
Than to stand in a bar, of a pub with no beer
