Tweet of the Day: Going the (social?) distance

Maybe we should call this “measuring the distance.”

That’s what a very agitated “Karen” apparently came prepared for.  She appears to be in a waterside setting near some strangers who look pretty harmless.  Everyone is attired in a bathing suit.  Karen has a tape measure, which she’s flipping around like a rhythmic gymnastics prop (only less, er, gracefully).

At one point she approaches the woman in the foreground, shrieking at her.  A man corrals Karen and her tape measure and escorts her back to her own position a good 15-20 feet away.

Karen is last seen clutching her tape measure, screaming, “It’s people like you that are ruining it for all of us!”

We deduce that this is about social distancing.  Karen’s location seems to be far enough away that there’s no need to get a tape measure involved.  No one, including Karen, is wearing a mask, but the tape measure doesn’t seem to be directly applicable to any reading of the situation.

On the other hand, Karen also sounds a bit out of calibration, as it were.  2020 goes marching on.
