Actually, coronavirus everywhere. At this time, Covid-19 is worldwide. And still, some people can respond to it with humor. Yay!
On a marquee in downtown Tucson, a popular live-performance theatre there:

And when a friend posted that:

Chuck Norris has been exposed to the Coronavirus…the virus is now in quarantine for 2 weeks.

it just screamed for a demonstration (and did you know Chuck Norris is 80 years old?!?? Yep, don’t fuck with the Man!).

And, of course, Love (or Maybe Larceny) in the Time of Coronavirus:

And then there’s Art (itty-bitty, little teeny-tiny Art) — thank you, Julia H. West:

…does Mary Worth ever worry, or fear for her sterling reputation? I doubt it, but it would be nice if she had occasional bouts of self-doubt.

While Mary was grilling Dawn about her friendship with Jared, CC’S John Long noted a less that courteous question posed by Mary:

Pretty shabby to ask such questions, but maybe (finally!) is up to the task!

Of course, it’s always fun to gild the lily!

And I think she’s going to be taking command!

And let’s wrap up the exciting week with a less-than-exciting Sunda compilation (although I do like the last panel):

And we’re just getting started….

And while we’re hanging around the ol’ fishing hole, Geoff lets folks know that he was an orphan, and he spends his time improving the lives of other orphans. What a noble endeavor! (The drawing still looks weird, though.)

The hikers make camp, and it’s suddenly deja vu all over again! (Thank you, Mr. Berra)

Who knew that such a scandalous individual might present himself to Dawn…in the same sleepy burg?

So, our relentless, week-long slog is capped by…a RELENTLESS SUNDAY RERUN!

Sputum? Cream of Wheat?

And like we care if Jeff Keane or a hapless chimpanzee actually draws and offers the laffs in Family Circus:

Big Daddy’s MIA for two weeks, and Billy was forced into indentured servitude. Yeah, like anyone cared!

Wow, new adventures with young Dawn Weston! Is it any wonder that Mary’s been MIA, and otherwise having to listen to Dawn’s exciting community college antics? It makes you feel almost sorry for the old busybody.

But not quite.

(And I think “immersed in school” is code for Dawn’s majoring in Underwater Basket-Weaving…)

And to think that I’m actually cheering on Mary!

Dawn and Jared discoever that they have SO MANY things in common!

So. Somewhere in the Himalayas, Dr. “HA HAW” Harvey got swept away in an avalanche. Mark cut his losses and headed home to Lost Forest. (No kidding, the trek was abandoned, and he went home. I can’t really blame him.) No Yeti was ever found, or seen, but Mark got to see some cool critters.

There’s not much to add about this whole disappointing storyline, but at least we have Lost Forest…

At least Mark can put on a happy face and teach us all a little about the Natural World AND the rare Savannah Walrus!

And just because Mark is back with his family in Lost Forest, it doesn’t mean that exciting things AREN’T going on there!
